Consumers in Photo Printer Market Migrating toward Multifunctional Photo-Centric Devices

According to a new report from InfoTrends entitled U.S. Photo Printer Market Placements: 2007, multifunctional photo-centric devices represent the highest growth area in the U.S. photo printer market. MFP models will continue to be the most popular type of printer within the consumer market and represent the best value for the vast majority. Most consumers like to have a copier or scanner at home and the fact that an MFP can perform these functions and produce great photo prints when needed ensures the device will be around for a long time. Replacement buyers will continue to fuel growth in this area, as even those that currently own single-function printers will likely opt for MFPs when the time comes to purchase a new device.

This document provides InfoTrends’ estimates for U.S. placement activities in 2007 in relation to personal inkjet and dye-sublimation printers. Placement data is provided for inkjet printers, inkjet multifunctional peripherals (MFPs), and dye-sublimation printers, as well as the subsets of photo-centric inkjet printers and MFPs, general-purpose inkjet printers and MFPs, and snapshot-size photo printers.

The report is available immediately to clients of InfoTrends’ Photo Printing Trends Service. For more information about the report or to make a purchase, visit our online store or contact Robyn Wuori at +1 ext. 109 or via e-mail at .
