    taiwan : Inkjet MFP sales rise in second quarter
    Domestic
    sales of inkjet multifunctional peripherals (MFP) in the second quarter
    reached 108,818 units, representing an increase of 6.2 percent from the
    first quarter but a decrease of 10.2 percent from the same period last
    year, market researcher IDC said yesterday.inkjet MFP has achieved 70
    percent penetration of the individual and home-based segments, but IDC
    research shows that it is also quickly gaining traction in the small
    business and home office segments,IDC analyst Joey Yen  said in a
    report yesterday.

    Hewlett-Packard Co (HP) and Epson Inc dominate
    the local inkjet MFP market with market shares of 46.4 percent and 40.1
    percent respectively. Coming in a distant third is US print and imaging
    company, Lexmark Corp, with an 8.3 percent market share, replacing
    Canon Inc in the second quarter, the report said.inkjet MFP
    manufacturers are releasing new wireless printers with fax
    functionality,Yen said. moreover, these companies are lowering the unit
    price for inkjet MFP and ink cartridges, as well as launching various
    promotions to boost sales.ll these additional functions and savings are
    luring customers away from conventional inkjet single function
    printers  Yen said.

    Based on IDC second-quarter analysis, MFP
    took up 65.6 percent of the entire inkjet market, leaving 35 percent,
    or 57,118 units, to SFP. MFP has been leading the inkjet market by a
    wide margin over SFP for eight consecutive quarters.
