    printer sales increased slowly as price cuts inspired enthusiasm for
    purchasing LaserJet printers The third quarter is usually the busy
    season for selling consumer products, but the third quarter of this
    year has been a moderate season for InkJet printer sale. The summer
    promotions sale did not encourage more InkJet printer purchases and the
    usual major purchasers, students, were more attracted to cost effective
    integrated printers that have been enjoying increasing market
    popularity. Ergo InkJet printer sales only had a slight increase of
    0.4%. However, InkJet printers are still important products for the
    manufacturers. One factor is the high profit margin from the future
    accessory supply sales. Another factor is that the InkJet printer is
    still the current mainstream product; especially the digital photo
    printing market which has been driving more sales of InkJet printers to
    home users. Therefore, digital photo printing will lead the sale of
    InkJet printers. As for the LaserJet printer market, the price
    reduction is the main promotion for LaserJet printers in the 3rd
    quarter. According to the statistics by CCID Consulting, the average
    unit price in the China LaserJet printer market is RMB 2550, reduced by
    12.2% compared to the same period. Currently, there are several
    products with a unit price of below RMB 900 but newly released products
    enter the market with a lower price. The price reduction contributed to
    a fast increase of LaserJet printer sales. CCID Consulting statistics
    show an increase of 17.0% with 433K LaserJet printers sold in the 3rd
    quarter. The popularity of LaserJet printer exceeds the InkJet printer
    gradually. After a several years’ slump adjustment, the dot matrix
    printer has rebounded to a certain extent, the market needs for product
    upgrades and replacements from finance, telecom, tax revenue and
    transportation industries is a contributing factor to the sale of more
    dot matrix printers. Moreover, CCID Consulting includes the statistics
    of passbook printers in this quarter. The sale of the dot matrix
    printer has significantly increased compared to the same period.

    The color LaserJet printer is the market leader but the market is changing rapidly
    the entire printer market is gradually moving up from the bottom in
    sales, the color LaserJet printer has easily led the printer market.
    All positive factors like huge price reductions, color printing
    business development and consistent manufacturing promotions have
    caused the color LaserJet market to develop rapidly. “China printer
    market analysis report in the Q3 of 2007″ illustrates that the total
    quantity of 60.2K color LaserJet printers were sold with an increase of
    45.4% compared to the same period, which is the fastest increasing
    market of classified products in the current printer marketplace with a
    proportion of 13.9% in the entire color printer market.

    focus attracts greater competition from more manufacturers. Currently
    most LaserJet printer manufacturers participate in the manufacturing of
    LaserJet printers, which makes the competition even hotter. Brand
    allocation is changing as the war of price, technology and channel
    building develops. Because the core technology of LaserJet printers is
    mastered by fewer and fewer manufacturers such as Samsung, Canon,
    Konica-Minolta, those manufacturers have active rights and a
    corresponding top-notch market share, especially Samsung coming back to
    the 3rd position by counting on the strategy of lower pricing to
    attract more sales; but the OEM manufacturers shows the declining
    status pressured by price competition. The market share of
    manufacturers such as Lenovo and Epson shrinks gradually; Epson
    especially withdrew from the LaserJet printer market due to pressure
    from competition and difficulty turning a profit, whose market share is
    reduced to less than 2% in the 3rd quarter this year from 21% of same
    period in 2006.

    Fast price reduction encouraged more purchases
    of the color LaserJet printer. Although the average unit price of RMB
    6000 makes many potential buyers hesitate, the cost limitation will be
    improved as the large-scale output increases.CCID Consulting Co., Ltd
