    FRANCE ,UK & GERMANY Q3 OEM PRINTER SHIPMENT DOWN 5.8 %
    November 
    2010 Customer interest in managed print services and the fragility of
    the economy conspired to force down UK printer shipments in Q3.Figures
    by channel analyst Context revealed that while the market in Western
    Europe grew 6.5% buoyed by France and Germany, the UK declined 5.8%.”The
    whole fashion for print services is going gung ho as customers
    consolidate printer fleets to cut costs,” said Context co-founder Jeremy
    Davies, who added that the numbers also “speak to the parlous state of
    the economy.”All-In-One Inkjet and inkjet printer shipments fell 11.7%
    and 16.2% respectively, while dot matrix sales dropped 21.7%. All-In-One
    Lasers grew 46.2%, copier-based MFPs were up 61.6% and single function
    lasers climbed 28.1%.

    The tough market conditions were reflected
    in most of the major vendors performances with just HP and Epson the
    only to post growth, as Canon, Lexmark and Samsung lost market share,
    while sales by Brother were flat year-on-year.

    EMEA printer shipments rise in Q3
    HP leads while Brother scrapes the barrel
    Printer
    shipments across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Central Asia grew
    11.1 percent from the same period a year ago.According to market
    research company Context, this compares favourably to the previous
    quarter, where sales grew 6.2 percent compared to 2009.Leading the
    growth was an increase in sales of copier-based multi-function printers
    (MFP), with year-on-year unit shipments increasing 32.7 percent in Q3
    2010. This growth is down to businesses consolidating fleets in the
    search for lower printing costsIt was also good news for the all-in-one
    (AIO) sector, where laser printers grew faster as prices fell. AIO laser
    printer shipments were up 26.8 percent in Q3 2010 compared to this time
    last year, while AIO inkjet printer shipments grew four percent over
    the same period.

    In Western Europe copier-based MFP sales were
    even higher, with the company claiming that units shipped increased 52.3
    percent in Q3 2010 compared to the same period in 2009. AIO laser
    printer sales were up 19.3 percent, and single-function laser printers
    up 18.7 percent.

    Jeremy Davies, CEO and co-founder at Context,
    said: “The fastest growing region was Central Asia, with shipments into
    the region growing 35.8 percent in Q3 2010 compared to a year ago.”He
    said this was due to an increase in sales of copier-based MFPs, with
    units shipped up 68.8 percent, and also AIO laser printers, where
    year-on-year sales grew 53.9 percent in Q3 2010.Meanwhile, unit
    shipments grew 6.5 percent in the mature Western European markets,
    approximately the same rate of growth as previously when sales in Q2
    2010 grew 5.9 percent compared to one year ago.

    HP triumphed in
    this sector, leading sales in Q3 2010 across all EMEA and Central Asia
    regions with a 15.6 percent share of total units shipped. This was up
    from 12.6 percent in the previous quarter. In second position was Canon
    with 5.5 percent of the share, followed by Epson with 4.8 percent and
    Samsung with 2.7 percent.Brother scraped the barrel with a two percent
    share.
