According to market research firm Gartner, the combined serial inkjet and page printer, copier and multifunction product (MFP) market in India totaled 760,778 units in the third quarter of 2012, a 4.7 percent decline from the third quarter of 2011. However, total end user spending stood at US$246.5 million, up 31 percent from the same period last year. “The festive season did not really resuscitate the printer copier market, as was expected by most of the major hardware providers. With besieged economic environment and green initiatives gaining growing importance, organizations adopted a ‘wait and watch’ approach on their IT spending for peripheral devices,“ said Amrita Choudhury, research analyst at Gartner. “Most of the technology providers suffered on the product front. However, services such as managed print services, cloud printing and document outsourcing witnessed positive responses from the Indian market. The dissuasion from the home segment continued with shipments in the third quarter of 2012 declining 18 percent compared to the third quarter of last year, which indicates this will be a fast-declining market compared to the professional segment.
