    Kodak is Number One in Photo Paper, but OEMs Gaining Ground
    While buyers say that the characteristics that are most important to them when choosing a photo paper are pricing and quality, they do have certain brand biases. A recent Lyra survey of 275 U.S. consumers who purchase ink jet photo paper shows that Kodak was the most popular brand, but also reveals that respondents are purchasing OEM-brand photo paper more often than they were just a few years ago.
    Lyra asked respondents who had purchased ink jet photo paper in the previous three months to select the brand of photo paper that they typically purchase. Kodak photo paper is the most popular brand, with almost one-third (32 percent) of respondents saying that they typically purchase Kodak-brand photo paper (see figure). HP-brand photo paper is a close second in terms of overall popularity (29 percent), while Epson photo paper is a more distant third (12 percent).
    In 2002, Lyra conducted a consumer survey of photo paper brand preferences. At that time, only 26 percent of respondents said they typically use photo paper from one of the printer OEMs (Canon, Epson, or HP). In 2005, 46 percent of survey respondents said they typically buy one of the OEM brands. Canon, Epson, and HP emphasize that their printers are designed to be used with OEM-brand ink and photo paper to produce the best print quality, a marketing message that appears to have resonated with consumers. Clearly, printer brand has a strong influence on a consumer’s choice of photo paper. It is probable that Lexmark’s new line of photo paper (released in May 2005) will become more popular among Lexmark printer owners.
