    Worldwide Page Printer Market Grows 18.6% in 2005.
    According
    to Gartner Inc., worldwide page printer shipments exceeded 21.4 million
    units in 2005, an 18.6% increase from 2004 shipments of 18.1 million
    units.

    Color
    page printer shipments totaled 3.1 million and increased 44.3% in 2005,
    while monochrome page printer shipments reached 18.4 million units, up
    15.1% from 2004.
    “Vendors experienced significant growth in the
    color page printer market due to aggressive pricing, as the average
    selling price of these devices declined 21% in 2005,” said Peter Grant,
    research vice president at Gartner. “Monochrome page printer shipments
    remain strong due to the growth in small and midsize business (SMB) and
    remote workers that need inexpensive printers.”
    HP continued to lead
    the worldwide page printer market, as it accounted for 49% of all
    printer shipments in 2005. HP adjusted pricing of low end monochrome
    lasers to stem their losses, focused on upgrading their current
    monochrome install base to new networked printers and expanded their
    color page printer offering.
    “Mature markets grew at low double
    digit rates, while emerging market grew at significantly higher rates
    demonstrating the broad strength in the page printer market,” said
    Grant.
    Page printers are output devices that print one page at a
    time. They include laser, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and solid ink
    printers
