There were negative sales performances in both inkjet and laser markets for units, and value for the laser market was down too. The overall market has been in continuous decline since 2Q15, except for a hopeful last quarter — and in 3Q17 the quarter declined by 173,000 units to give a market of almost 5.1 million devices. This disappointing quarter is due to the decline in laser printing but is relatively in line with forecasts. Revenues fell by 11.4%. Inkjet revenues, however, increased 9.6% due to strong A3 sales, while laser revenues fell by 15.2%.
