US Production Copying & Digital Printing to Grow to $57.6 Billion by 2006

Analysts predict an expanding production copying & digital printing market

CAP Ventures expects the retail value of print in the production digital copying & digital printing market (print on demand, data processing, and high speed copying) to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9% from $36.6 billion in 2001 to $57.6 billion in 2006. The print-on-demand market drives this growth as its retail value of print increases from $26.2 billion in 2001 to $50.5 billion in 2006 at a 14% CAGR. 

Despite the current poor state of the U.S. economy, the print-on-demand market will grow, showing double-digit increases in installed base, annual impressions, total annual revenue, and retail value of print. Recent introductions of black & white and color print-on-demand products have helped to spur this growth.

Black & white print on demand will represent $17.1 billion in retail value of print by 2006 a 17% CAGR. Placements in this product category are dominated by new lower-priced and low-volume Segment 5 & 6 digital copier/printers. These devices have recently entered the market and will significantly grow the installed base of the 80+-page-per-minute (ppm) segment, which more than triples from over 26,000 in 2001 to over 80,000 in 2006.

Color print on demand continues to perform well, capturing $33.4 billion in retail value of print by 2006, up from $17.3 billion in 2001 at a CAGR of 14%. Reductions in cost per print are helping to drive volume and provide reduced pricing for consumers.

The preceding was an excerpt from CAP Ventures’ U.S. Print On Demand Market Forecast. The forecast consists of placements, installed base, impressions per machine per month, annual impressions, revenue (equipment, supplies, and service), average retail value per image, and retail value of print. The document also includes 2001 placements and a full forecast to 2006.
