Other Highlights

  • Shipments in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets were particularly soft in 2Q15. This despite the FESPA event in May, which typically drives a lot of activity in the large format market. The economic situations in Greece, Russia, and the Middle East are at least part of the reason for the softness in these regions.
  • Strong shipments in North America and across the Asia/Pacific region offset lower shipments in EMEA. There is a clear movement towards UV-curable inkjet in the Asia/Pacific market as UV-curable inkjet printer shipments increased by more than 30% year over year in 2Q15.


  • IDC tracks A2-A0+ devices in the LFP market
  • The LFP market includes single-function printers, as well as multifunctional systems (MFPs). Data for all vendors are reported for calendar periods.
