  • Worldwide Large Format Printer Shipments Down Slightly in 3Q 2019: IDC

    Posted on InkWorldMagazine.com

    "Shipments in North America increased more than 4% compared to 2Q19.

    The worldwide large format printer market decreased modestly in the third quarter of 2019 (3Q19) with shipments declining by roughly 0.5% compared to the previous quarter, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Large Format Printer Tracker.

    "While the large format printer market has been soft, there were some surprising areas of growth when we get into the breakdown by technology and region," said Tim Greene, research director, Hardcopy Solutions. "New products and aggressive marketing have driven growth in some technology segments, while application expansion continued to drive investments in UV and textile/soft signage printers."

    • Shipments in North America increased more than 4% compared to 2Q19, driven largely by the U.S., which grew 9% quarter over quarter in 3Q19;
    • Japan and Central & Eastern Europe (CEE) both saw strong growth in 3Q19. The CEE growth largely offset declining shipments in Western Europe in the quarter while the growth in Japan made up for softer than expected shipments in the rest of the Asia/Pacific region." . . .
