Printers might not be enterprise best sellers, but that does not mean customers haves stopped buying them-- the "paperless office" is still some time away, and until then printers retain a mission-critical place in just about every business.
According to a recent IDC report, printers and MFPs are on something of a decline in W. Europe, with negative performance on the inkjet side even if laser printers are on the increase. This is a trend seen throughout all mature markets, and is at least in part due to the different way employees of different ages work. Millennial-aged employees prefer using digital devices, while older workers continue to use papers, leading to offices where some rarely print while others want to print just about everything.
In a report on the printer market in CEE, IDC repeats such concerns, stating "the ongoing digitalisation of paper-based processes in business, together with the increasing preference for electronic documents among both businesses and consumers, are expected to be the major inhibitors for sales of printing devices in developed CEE countries."
