    M.F.P. SALES LEAD WORLDWIDE PRINTER SALES IN Q1 
    Multifunction printers defy economic downturn to record solid worldwide sales growth
    Colour
    laser multifunction devices (MFDs) were Q1 2009 leader of the global
    printer market, with sales growing six per cent year on year.

    According
    to IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker, MFDs
    dominate the overall hardcopy peripherals market with a 62 per cent
    share and 16.3 million units shipped in the quarter.“The MFD market has
    fared much better than the single-function printer market, as products
    continue to make the transition towards multifunction,” the market
    watcher reported. “HP continues to lead the worldwide laser MFD market
    with a 19.2 per cent share based on Q109 shipments of 541,042 units.”HP
    has now led for nine quarters. Samsung and Brother came next, with 16.4
    per cent and 13.5 per cent, respectively.GfK figures suggest that MFD
    success, particularly via mass merchandisers, has underlined a
    single-function printing market fall of more than a year.“In March
    2009, A4 inkjet single function printers were down 47 per cent in
    volume and 37 per cent in value on March 2008,” GfK reported.MFDs with
    wireless or photo printing functionality are also boosting sales,
    according to GfK.
