    China’s printer shipments reached 2.4 million in fourth quarter 2005
    BEIJING MARCH 2006 – Analysys International, a leading Internet based provider of business information about Technology, Media and Telecom industry in China, says that unit shipments of printers in China reached 2.445 million with market value of RMB 3.26 billion in the fourth quarter of 2005, in its recently released report China Printer Market Quarterly Tracker Q4 2005.
    Analysys International says the unit shipments increased 12.0% YoY and the market value only 5.5% YoY. Industrial profits of China’s printer market continued to decline. Price competition is pervasive.
    In the fourth quarter of 2005, as laser printer prices continued to go down, many enterprise users began to choose laser printers when purchasing new ones. Color laser printer market developed especially well. Prices of inkjet printer consumables declined a lot, which considerably reduced inkjet printing costs. As a result, the number of low- and medium-end users who bought inkjet printers increased. Stylus printer market maintained stable growth and professional level stylus printer still had a relatively large user group.
    According to the report, HP achieved excellent performance in laser printer market, particularly in the color laser printer market, leading the market with an extremely high market share of 30.2%. Epson still had advantages in stylus printer and inkjet printer market, with a market share of 21.8%. Canon and Lenovo were close concerning market value of shipments, being in the third and the fourth positions. Dell had been very active and made great breakthroughs on sales since it entered China’s printer market. However, Analysys International says Dell had a market share of about only 1%, hardly posing any threat to the big players, such as HP, in the printer market
