Future Expectations for U.S. Scanning Volumes

When asked how they expected their overall scanning volumes to change within the next two years, the greatest percentage of survey participants (41%) believed that they would remain the same. Meanwhile, nearly 46% of respondents expected some kind of increase, but only about 6% anticipated some kind of decrease. On a scale of 1 to 7 (with 1 meaning “decrease a lot” and 7 meaning “increase a lot”), the overall average rating was 4.7.

Respondents were also asked how they expected their scanning volumes to behave in terms of specific activities. Although all averages fell within the range of a slight improvement, the highest values were assigned to scanning printed photos, scanning text documents, and scanning documents with text and images. Respondents also projected increases in their scanning volumes of artwork and graphics, slides, and film negatives.
