Is this a trend? It sure seems like it. Last week, we reported on IDC research showing that the worldwide large-format printer market enjoyed its third consecutive quarter of growth in terms of both unit shipments and shipment value (7.4 percent and 3.7 percent respectively) for first-quarter 2014. This week, IDC delivered more good news, this time for the worldwide production-printing market. Turning to the office, last month, IDC also reported that the worldwide office printer/MFP/copier market also recorded its third consecutive quarter of growth (see here).

Interesting fact of the week: HP isn’t just toner and ink, of course; it says it’s the United States’ largest provider of Medicaid and Medicare process-management services, administering $140 billion in benefits a year.
