Abstract - Slovakia Hardcopy Peripherals Market 2010–2014 Forecast and 2009 Vendor Shares | Research | IDC CEMA

This IDC study discusses the market for hardcopy peripherals – both single function and multifunction. It does not cover point-of-sale printers or small-format printers featuring widths of less than eight inches. Neither does it cover wide-format (A0) products, sometimes known as plotters. The forecast contains data for the Slovak peripherals market from 2010 through 2014. Unit shipment, value of shipment, and ASP information is presented. Data for 2008–2009 is up to date, whereas data for 2010–2014 is projected.

"The financial crisis forced both HCP vendors and their distributors to revise their strategies. Vendors have been optimizing their distribution channels and focusing on improving cooperation with and conditions for their partners. Vendors also increasingly focus on value-added services rather than traditional box moving. The Slovak market is still far behind Western Europe, but demand for cost-saving document solutions and managed print services has been increasing." – Senior Research Analyst Radovan Kautsky, IDC Czech Republic.
