(Weymouth, MA) July 05, 2005…According to a new end-user survey conducted by InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, over 70% of respondents indicated they are printing more documents in color than they were two years ago. This is good news for supplies manufacturers. Color equipment uses more consumables and the cost of consumables for these devices is about four times more than traditional black & white output devices.

“With the rise in color placements, it is encouraging for supplies manufacturers to see that printing has not declined for color documents,” commented Cathy Martin, a Consultant for InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. “Based on the responses to this survey, these businesses are trying to get the most use out of their new imaging devices by printing more or about the same as they had in the past.”
In early 2005, InfoTrends/CAP Ventures conducted a survey of over 570 business end-users on the paper market for cut size sheet paper, continuous forms, and recycled paper. Questions in the survey covered many aspects of this market including types of paper, paper by type of equipment, recycled paper, continuous forms, and paper expenditures. The results of this survey are now available in a new report entitled End-Users Voice Opinions About Paper.
Other key highlights uncovered in the report include:
