This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the Global Printer Market for the period 2014-2018. The report covers inkjet printers including inkjet MFPs and laser printers including monochrome laser printers, color laser printers, and laser MFPs. This report also covers dot matrix printers and copiers. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated from the sales and the unit shipments of the above mentioned printers. It also presents the vendor landscape and a corresponding detailed analysis of the leading vendors in the market. In addition, the report discusses the major drivers that influence the growth of the Global Printer market. It also outlines the challenges faced by vendors and the market at large, as well as the key trends that are emerging in the market.

The shift from the adoption of black and white print impressions to color print impressions has resulted in an increase in the demand for high-speed continuous-feed inkjet printers. This in turn has boosted the growth of the Global Printer market. With the adoption of advanced technology printers such as ultra-high volume inkjet printers, the average cost per color impression is likely to drop significantly. Thus, an increase in the demand for color prints is a positive trend that is expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the Global Printer market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is an increase in demand for inkjet printers. As a result of advancements in inkjet technology and the introduction of specialized inkjet printers such as UV-curable inkjet printers, the Global Inkjet Printer market is currently growing at a rapid rate, driving the growth of the Global Printer market.

Further, the report states that the global economic slowdown is one of the major challenges hindering the growth of the Global Printer market, which itself is directly proportional to the GDP of a country. The slowdown in the global economy has reduced demand for printers, leading to an inventory pile-up in the supply chain. The Eurozone crisis and sluggish economic growth in the APAC region, especially India and Japan, has affected many sectors including the Educational, BFSI, and IT - the major end-users of the Global Printer market.
