Canon Leads U.S. Mid-Volume Color Production-Printing Market for Six Consecutive Quarters
Canon U.S.A. reports that it’s led the 301,000-to-999,000-page duty cycle segment for color production printers in the U.S. market for six consecutive quarters, from fourth-quarter 2014 to first-quarter 2016, according to market-research firm InfoTrends’ Quarterly Tracker. In the first quarter of 2016, Canon accounted for 64.5 percent of the U.S. market share, with the next closest competitor making up 17.8 percent. This figure represents a 7.3 percent increase in share from four-quarter 2015, when Canon made up 57.2 percent of U.S. market share. When totaling results from the beginning of fourth-quarter 2014 through the end of first-quarter 2016, Canon has accounted for more than half of the U.S. market share for the color 301,000-to-999,000-page duty cycle segment, with 53.7 percent.
“Canon’s success in this market can be mostly attributed to the imagePRESS C800 and imagePRESS C700 color digital production presses,” commented Toyo Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager of Canon U.S.A.’s Business Imaging Solutions Group. “Since their introduction in the last quarter of 2014, the high quality, reliability, and versatility of these digital presses are an outstanding fit for almost every print operation and deliver powerful opportunities in a small footprint, as proven by the excellent market acceptance.”
“The presence of the imagePRESS C800/C700 has strengthened Canon’s position in the mid-volume production market and expanded their family of digital color offerings, providing the versatility and efficiency needed in a variety of print environments, both in-house and commercial,” said Jim Hamilton of InfoTrends.
