Newton, MA (PRWEB) April 12, 2011
Lyra Research, the digital imaging authority (http://www.lyra.com), and The Imaging Channel (http://www.theimagingchannel.com) will host a free, live Webcast that will discuss Printer and Supplies Market Trends That Impact Your MPS Program on Wednesday, April 20, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern DST. Larry Jamieson, director of Lyra’s Hard Copy Industry Advisory Service, and Jiqiang Rong, Lyra’s director of primary research, will provide a top-level overview of the printer market and discuss the changing parameters of printing, including both short-term tactical positioning among vendors and long-term trends that will affect resellers, end users, and vendors.
Specifically, the Webcast will explore the following:
- How the printer market is faring as we emerge from the recession.
- When or if the market will return to normal.
- Where supplies revenue will come from.
- What printer OEMs and aftermarketers are doing to gain market share.
- Where the toner cartridge market is moving in terms of technology and pricing.
“The printer market is experiencing a number of changes,” said Larry Jamieson, director of Lyra’s Hard Copy Industry Advisory Servce. “The recession had a significant impact on the market starting in mid-2008 and continuing through 2009. A recovery began in 2010, which was fueled by the growth of the color market. However, questions remain regarding how long the recovery will take and how much of an impact slow rehiring practices, MPS engagements, and the greater use of mobile devices and screen-based applications will have on the market’s rebound.”
