FRAMINGHAM, Mass., August 31, 2017 – The International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Large Format Printer Tracker found that large format printer (LFP) shipments increased by 6% year over year in the first half of 2017 (1H17) while printer revenue grew by almost 2% when compared to the first half of 2016.
"These results illustrate the continued growth in the large format market," said Tim Greene, research director, Hardcopy Solutions. "Also that manufacturers and dealers are incentivizing new printer shipments with discounts, bundles, and aggressive promotions. Recovery in technology categories like eco-solvent and toner-based printers have run counter to some of the market trends over the past few quarters to create bit of a surprisingly strong second quarter."
There was no movement among the top five large format printer suppliers in terms of shipments. In the first half of 2017. The top five companies were HP Inc, Canon-Oce, Seiko Epson, Roland DG, and Mimaki.
