CAP Ventures Examines World Toner Market

Retail Value of Toner to Grow to $14.2 Billion by 2005

CAP Ventures research shows the retail value of toner growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.4% over a five-year forecast period between 2000 and 2005. This will bring the retail value of toner to $14.2 billion in 2005. While the market continues to grow, the printer segments and color devices are carrying all of the growth.

The retail value of the printer/printer-based MFP market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period, from $5 billion in 2000 to $8.6 billion in 2005. In comparison, the copier/copier-based MFP side will grow at a much slower rate of 5% CAGR, from $3.7 billion in 2000 to $4.8 billion in 2005.

While toner used in color devices still represents a small fraction of all toner pounds, it is growing very quickly. From 2000-2005, CAP Ventures estimates that consumption rates of toner, in terms of pounds, will grow from 31.1 million pounds to 70.4 million pounds, a 24% CAGR.

OEM vs. Aftermarket

Ongoing competition between the OEMs and the aftermarket continues to be a relative stalemate.

2001 saw an up tick in aftermarket share as a result of the recession in the United States. On the copier and laser printer side there was growth in share of a point or two. But in the world total, the change was not especially significant.

The preceding was an excerpt from CAP Ventures’ World Toner Report Demand Forecast and Production Estimates. To learn more about the study or make a purchase, please contact Alison Hipp at , ext. 126.
