In the inkjet printer category, market leader HP had a share of 72% in terms of unit shipments during FY 2011-12, followed by Epson with 14% and Canon with 11%.

These models were well accepted by market due to low per page print cost. Canon witnessed a shortage of IP 2770 in the inkjet SF printer segment in H2 FY 2011-12, whereas their new model, the E500 in the inkjet multifunction printer segment helped Canon increase sales due the low cartridge cost.

Source: The DQ Week estimates Canon and Samsung having almost equal shares of 20% each. Other vendors accumulated a combined share of 6%. HP experienced shortage of flagship models in the laser MFP category in the first half of financial year 2011-12; the vendor also witnessed shortage of its laser SF flagship model, the 1020plus. Samsung’s market presence was strengthened by the launch of its chipless toner based printers ML1676 and SCX-3201G. Other vendors like Panasonic, Brother etc. also witnessed a growth in their business. The laser MFP category in the India A4 printer market saw new entrants such as Epson and Brother. Multifunction printers saw increasing acceptability in the home, SMB and Retail segments. SMBs prefer a mix of single function and multifunction printers to attain overall printing solution efficiency. As per the CyberMedia Research India 45-City Monthly Printer Market Review, 1Q 2012, May 2012 release, the share of MFPs increased by 3% versus SF printers in H2 FY 2011-12 as compared to H1 FY 2011-12. The decreasing price gap between single function and multifunction printers in the same technology space also prompted a set of customers to move to the latter category. The market witnessed a price increase of 6% to 12% by almost all the vendors in May 2012 across printer categories, primarily due to the rising global crude prices and the sharp decline in the value of the Indian Rupee vis-à-vis the US Dollar. CyberMedia Research expects the market to pick up slowly in the coming months as different professional institutes enter into their academic sessions and the commencement of the festive season. Distributors are also expecting growth in business from the corporate and government segments.
