    InfoTrends/CAP Ventures Identifies Growth Areas in
    Western European Printer Consumables Market
    June , 2005
    The total Western European computer printing supplies
    market, including marking materials and media, is expected to increase from euro
    32.5 billion in 2003 to almost euro 36.2 billion in 2008, according to
    InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. Consumables growth will come in the home with inkjet
    technology, in the office with toner-based technology, and in professional print
    environments with light production monochrome devices and lower-cost colour

    Marking materials will be the key driver for
    supplies growth, increasing from euro 17.6 billion in 2004 to euro 19.8 billion
    by 2008. Media will remain relatively flat, growing from euro 14.1 billion in
    2004 to euro 14.2 billion in 2008.

    Highlights from the latest InfoTrends/CAP Ventures forecast include:

    • Inkjet technology will continue to increase its share of total supplies
      revenue at the expense of impact printing and fax technologies.
    • Uncoated cut-sheet paper will remain the dominant media, while specialty
      media for colour laser and colour inkjet applications is also expected to show
      promising growth.
    • Lower-end colour page printing will dominate the supplies opportunity in the
      office environment in the coming years, but the Universal Copier/Printers are
      expected to win out in the longer term.

    The next few years will likely bring a number of challenges to the supplies
    markets as vendors face a weakened dollar and increasing pricing pressures,”
    commented Catherine Cresswell, Associate Director at InfoTrends/CAP Ventures.
    “The real challenge, however, is to continue to facilitate and encourage the
    output of paper-based documents by selling the value of shorter runs,
    personalisation, and colour. Users themselves must be re-trained to see hard
    copy output as something that adds real value at a personal and commercial level
    in that they can make businesses more effective.”
