    TAIWAN : PRINTER SALES REACH 89,528 UNITS IN Q2 2010
    Taipei, Oct. 2010 –Sales of SFPs (single-function printers) in Taiwan reached 89,528 units in the second quarter, both a positive year-on-year (YoY) and quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) increase, according to the IDC Taiwan Quarterly SFP and MFP Tracker report.Shipments of inkjet MFPs (multifunctional printers) during the period were 178.874 units, both a two-digit QoQ and YoY increase.Joey Yen, market analyst of peripherals at IDC Taiwan, pointed out that no matter in inkjet or laser technology the penetration of MFPs in the market has been increasing, and the segment of MFPs has become one of the most important targets of global printer vendors. IDC`s local branch stressed that the overall domestic printer shipments in Taiwan has not recovered to pre-meltdown levels, but a market uptrend could be forecasted.

    A total of 20,734 laser MFPs were sold, up 4.1% QoQ and up 37.6% YoY. Irene Lien, market analyst of PC & peripherals group at IDC Taiwan, said that the whole-2010 laser MFP shipments are optimistic, especially that HP`s MPS (Managed Print Service) A4-size model is expected to bring up the overall market and in the A3-size segment color models are expected to replace more black-and-white counterparts this year.

    Over 90% of purchasers of inkjet MFPs are families and small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs), and shipments of such products accounted for 77% of the overall printer sales in Taiwan in the second quarter.

    Shipments of inkjet SFPs in the second quarter were only 42,859 units, down 4.3% QoQ and down 3.8% YoY. During the same period, 178,874 inkjet MFP models were sold, up 30.1% QoQ and up 67.3% YoY.

    A total 34,286 laser SFPs were shipped in the first quarter, up 2.7% QoQ and up 30.7% YoY. Top-three players in the segment include HP, Epson, and Fuji Xerox.
    HP, Epson, Fuji Exrox maintained their leading positions with a combined market share of more than 85%.

    Some 7,046 A3-size laser MFPs were shipped, up 8.9% QoQ and up 42.8% YoY. Color laser MFPs accounted for 33.6% in the A3-size market, and the shipments of such product saw a 40.7% QoQ increase.
