    To Date India's Oem Printer Sales Are Down 8% in 2015
    By Tech Radar India Bureau

    Don't know if Indians turned environmental conscious this year or thought of moving towards a paperless lifestyle, but printer sales registered a drop in the country.

    CMR's India Monthly A4 Printer Market Review, 1Q CY2015 release suggests that India's A4 printer market comprising of Inkjet, DMP and Laser printers registered an 8% sequential decline in 1Q CY2015 over 4Q CY 2015. The market grew marginally by 2% on a year-on-year basis in 1Q CY2015,

    The report further shows, HP remained market leader with a 48% share in terms of unit shipments in 1Q CY2015. The vendor witnessed an 8% sequential decline in shipments in 1Q CY2015 vis-a-vis 4Q CY2014. Epson was placed at No. 2 spot, followed by Canon.

    Samsung, witnessing a continuous decline in shipments since 1Q CY2014, turned around and recorded a 58% quarter-on-quarter growth in 1Q CY2015; Ricoh maintained shipments at the same level as the previous quarter.

    "Traditionally the first quarter of a calendar year has an edge on the previous quarter's shipments; however, this year the trend was reversed due to slow business by HP and Canon. In the Inkjet Single Function Printer category, both vendors witnessed shortage of product supply" said, Narinder Kumar, Analyst, Infotech and Channels Research Practices, CyberMedia Research.

    "Upward price revision by HP in January 2015 affected the vendor's business, especially in the Laser Single Function Printer category, which was another major reason for decline of the overall India A4 Printer market in 1Q CY2015."
