Asia/Pacific Quarterly Printer Consumables Tracker

Available Product Resources Factsheet

The Asia/Pacific printer consumables market continues to play a vital role in the peripherals space, generating considerable revenue for printer vendors. In addition, the proliferation of rapidly evolving peripherals products, such as multifunction peripherals (MFP), photo printers, and digital cameras, will continue to drive the demand for consumables, turning in good printing volumes over the forecast period. As the Asia/Pacific market is highly fragmented, timely and accurate information is critical for effective planning and decision making. IDC's Asia/Pacific Semiannual Printer Consumables Tracker addresses this need by providing you with pertinent information, coupled with an in-depth analysis and forecast of the printer consumables markets in Asia/Pacific. By equipping themselves with the right information and analysis, printer vendors will be better positioned to capitalize on new growth opportunities, as well as uncover and arm themselves against potential threats in the marketplace.
