    The company predicts the EMEA market will reach almost 54 million units in 2007.The combined printer, copier and multifunctional product (MFP) market in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) hit 23.4 million units during the first half of 2007, an increase of 5.8 percent compared with the same period last year, according to Gartner. Copiers and MFP sales represented 53 percent of the total market, while serial inkjet MFP sales accounted for 41 percent of the total print market. Gartner predicts that the combined printer, copier and multifunctional product market in EMEA will reach almost 54 million units in 2007.Cecile Drew, principal research analyst at Gartner, says shipments of copiers and MFPs continued strongly in the first half of 2007. “Sales in this segment were primarily driven by serial inkjet MFP sales that accounted for 41% of the total print market. Copiers and MFP sales represented 53% of the total.”The report states HP has retained its position as market leader in the serial inkjet market, accounting for almost half of the total market share. Kodak’s debut in this market and HP’s first Edgeline technology MFP devices also made a mark, according to the report.“These new products brought inkjet into the domain of departmental colour printing, allowing lower printing cost in the office and moving HP into direct competition with Xerox and Canon,” Drew says. “HP has on several occasions attempted to penetrate the corporate copier and MFP market, but with limited success. This time, the company has an attractive product portfolio and is expected to do well in this segment.”Drew says Samsung Electronics expanded its product portfolio with faster speed devices that would help it to compete with the leading players in the business segment.
