Hardcopy peripheral market 'to grow by 2.8% next year'

The hardcopy peripheral market is set to grow in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) as the recovery begins to take effect in 2010, an organisation has predicted.

An IDC report suggests that total shipment value will increase by 2.8 per cent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) until 2013, with MFP products and monochrome laser printers experiencing significantly higher CAGRs.

Leigh Worthing, a senior analyst at the company, claims that it is crucial to balance economic optimism with caution as recovery in the EMEA region could still be fragile.

Phil Sergeant, research manager for print markets in Western Europe at the analyst, claims that purchasing behaviours will have been transformed by the downturn.

'[Changes] may include where and how end users decide to purchase [hardcopy peripheral] products and services,' he explains.

Gartner recently predicted that the semiconductor capital equipment market will grow during the next 12 months by 45.3 per cent.
