    Aftermarket Cartridge Shipments for HP and
    E
    pson Printers Are Neck and Neck–Forecast looks beyond installed base and OEM cartridge
    LYRA RESEARCH
    Newton, MA July ,2005 – — Lyra Research’s Hard Copy Supplies Advisory Service has published its new Forecast 360 for hard copy supplies. The forecast estimates that just over 100 million aftermarket ink jet cartridges will ship for use in HP printing devices worldwide next year, and nearly the same number of aftermarket ink jet cartridges will ship for use in Epson printers.

    Grey Held, director of Lyra’s Hard Copy Supplies Advisory Service, explains, “If you look at the worldwide installed base of HP ink jet printers and MFPs, it is almost double the size of Epson’s ink jet installed base. Likewise, HP ships about twice as many ink jet cartridges per year as Epson. But when it comes to aftermarket ink jet cartridges, shipments are surprisingly similar. According to Lyra, a contributing factor to this unlikely near-tie is Epson’s growing installed base of ink jet printers that use separate ink tanks for cyan, magenta, and yellow. Also, Epson ink cartridges do not feature integrated print heads, as do most HP ink cartridges.
    Elisabeth Wightman, Lyra’s research analyst for ink jet cartridges and trends in ink technologies, explains the product strategy changes that Lyra is tracking. “In the ink jet cartridge market, we have seen swings in the types of cartridges offered by vendors. Tricolor cartridges with cyan, magenta, and yellow together are evolving to separate ink tanks, one for each color,” explains Wightman. “As a consequence, comparing shipment volumes of cartridges from one company to another has become difficult.
