    MFPs Use More Toner per Device than Single-Function Printers
    LYRA RESEARCH
    Based
    on past research, Lyra generally assumes that laser multifunction
    peripherals (MFPs) use 20 to 60 percent more toner per device per year
    than single-function laser printers. For this reason, MFPs are more
    lucrative, both for printer OEMs and for cartridge remanufacturers.
    Because laser MFPs have high usage rates, printer makers are
    particularly motivated to hold on to their share of the consumables
    market for these devices. Printer OEMs have decided to protect supplies
    annuities by emulating copier companies and implementing service
    contracts and cost-perpage plans that lock users into buying only OEM
    consumables. To combat this trend, some dealers and remanufacturers
    have begun implementing their own “click-charge” programs, using a mix
    of OEM and remanufactured toner cartridges to fulfill their customer
    commitments.
    Because they have higher duty cycles than
    single-function printers and because their paper-handling and finishing
    devices contain more electromechanical parts, MFPs provide the dealer
    channel with an opportunity to increase service revenue. With the laser
    MFP installed-base forecast to grow through 2009 , this market shows
    real profit opportunities for hardware and supplies vendors.
