Wireless devices continue to show growth

The brightest spot in the overall worldwide hardcopy peripherals (HCP) market during the third quarter of 2012 (3Q12) was wireless devices, with its showing of 2% year-over-year growth in a challenging economic environment.

According to the International Data Corporation (www.idc.com), total worldwide hardcopy unit shipments declined 12.7% year-over-year to nearly 27.4 million units, the fourth consecutive quarterly decline.

Despite a contraction of 15% year over year, inkjet remains the dominant technology with 16.7 million units shipped and a 61% share of the total HCP market in 3Q12. The wireless inkjet segment in mature markets continued to exhibit growth, resulting in 1% year-over-year gain in the third quarter of 2012.

Laser declined 8% year over year in 3Q12 to 9.6 million units resulting in a 35% share of the total HCP market. The wireless laser segment experienced year-over-year growth of 9% and 22%, respectively, in the emerging and mature markets.
The monochrome laser market declined 9% year-over-year to 7.9 million units.

This was the lowest year-over-year growth for monochrome laser in any quarter since 3Q08. The color laser segment declined 3% year-over-year to 1.7 million units in 3Q12.
