Personal computers fall under two categories, namely, non-impact printers and impact printers. In an impact printer (e.g. dot-matrix printer), text and images appear on paper when there is physical contact between the print head and the paper. On the other hand non-impact printers can produce images without the print head actually striking the paper. Laser printers and inkjet printers are the two popular non-impact printers.
The global printer market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 0.9% from 2013 to 2018. It is categorized on the basis of technology and regions. Technology segments are inkjet printers, dot-matrix printers, laser printers, and thermal printers. Laser printers are further divided into color laser printers, monochrome laser printers, and laser MFPs.
Inkjet printers are in great demand due to advantages like lower costs, ease of use, good speed, and less noise. Their biggest strength is their high output quality. These printers can print finer, smoother details. They are capable of printing in vivid colors, rendering them useful for printing pictures. Robust consumption of inkjet printers would be the key growth driver of the overall printer market. Additionally, the rising preference for multifunction printers (MFPs) will also spur growth. MFPs perform various activities like print, scan, copy and fax.
