The combined serial inkjet and page printer, copier and MFP market in India totaled 861,212 units in the third quarter of 2013, a 13.2 percent increase from the third quarter of 2012, according to Gartner, Inc. Total end-user spending declined 9 percent from the same period last year totaling USD $223.7 million. Both the monochrome and color markets posted increases of 12 percent and 28 percent.

“Indian organizations are still largely paper driven, but there is increasing importance of digitization and the need to access information anytime, anywhere. This represents an opportunity for print providers to expand their services into optimizing the document workflows that support business processes,” said Zalak Shah, research analyst at Gartner.

Hewlett-Packard remained the market leader in the Indian printer; copier and MFP market (see Table 1), as its market share totaled 51.5 percent, followed by Canon with 21 percent and Epson with 9 percent share. Samsung Electronics accounted for 7 percent, while Ricoh accounted for 6 percent of the market in the third quarter of 2013.
