    U.S. Printer 2005-2009 Forecast

    AN IDC study quantifies the U.S. single-function printer market
    opportunity and analyzes it by vendor and by segment. The total U.S. printer
    market is expected to drop slightly throughout the forecast period due to
    shifting volumes to MFPs. However, the good news is that IDC has slowed down its
    forecast for the single-function to multifunction transition as printer vendors
    continue to find opportunities with single-function printer products. For
    example, IDC anticipated unit and value CAGRs of -7% and -4%, respectively, in
    last year’s U.S. printer forecast study. In comparison, this year’s study shows
    unit and value CAGRs of -1.8% and -1.4% for 2004–2009.

    “While the U.S.
    printer market is expected to show some decline over the forecast
    period, market opportunities remain in certain segments, “Color page
    printers will more than double their unit volume during the forecast
    period, while inkjet printers will still account for more than 10.63
    million unit shipments in 2009. Additionally, the significant ASV
    declines in certain monochrome laser and color page printer segments
    will drive interest from increasingly cost-conscious customers.”
