This IDC study examines the Western European hardcopy market, split by technology for color page, inkjet, monochrome page, dot matrix, line matrix, high-speed inkjet, and highlight color. Printer technologies were split by A3 and A4 format, while color laser printers were split by single and multipass."IDC forecast market growth in 2014 after several years of decline. The year has started off well with year-on-year increases seen in many areas, and newer technology areas such as business inkjets continue to increase. Business inkjets are also increasing penetration into the general office market and competition against laser manufacturers. Color laser shipments will continue to increase, while growth will also be seen in lower-volume but higher-value markets such as high-speed inkjet markets and digital production markets for labels and packaging," said Phil Sargeant, program director, IDC Imaging Printing and Document Solutions.
