    Analyst Group Says Shift To Notebooks Hurt Printer Sales
    Research
    firm Current Analysis says that the continued shift to notebooks from
    desktops led to “disappointing” sales of printers during the late
    fourth quarter, as notebook-printer bundles have not caught on in the
    low-end of the market as desktop-printer bundles have.The San Diego,
    Calif.-based analyst group said inkjet printer sales in the period
    between Thanksgiving week and the end of the year dropped 1 percent in
    2006 compared to 2005, noting that during the same period desktop PC
    sales dropped 2 percent. Current Analysis, in its report, wrote:Printer
    manufacturers should consider devoting more resources toward notebook
    bundling opportunities, since holiday notebook PC unit sales increased
    51 percent and revenue growth amounted to 21 percent year-over-year –
    both growth rates are higher than those of the 2005 holiday
    season.Notably, Current analysis said it found “inkjet cartridge sales
    recorded an unimpressive 2 percent growth rate, the poorest holiday
    performance in three years. Business printer sales, the firm said,
    increased 20 percent during the holiday period in 2006 compared to 2005
    “due to the drastically declining ASPs and more consumer-friendly
    designs.”
