    Inkjet vs. EP:
    IT Strategies estimates that in 2002, inkjet revenues from the sale of printers, media and ink were $33 billion and are forecast to grow to $50 billion by 2007, a CAGR of 8 percent. Color EP revenues from the sale of printers, media and toner of $22 billion in 2002 are forecast to grow to $42 billion by 2007, a CAGR of 14 percent. According to Mark Hanley, president of IT Strategies, “Currently inkjet and EP are found in different segments: Narrow format inkjet primarily in the home; wide-format inkjet in graphics applications; and EP in the office and commercial printing applications. However, over time we can expect to see a merging as inkjet is used for documents and EP for graphics applications such as POP signage and fine art.”

    In 2002, inkjet revenues made up more than 60 percent of total revenues. By 2007, the percentage is expected to drop to 54 percent as color EP takes more share from monochrome EP applications driven by OEMs such as Xerox, HP, Canon, Ricoh, and Lexmark who are looking to color as their future.
