It’s a question that many Indian consumers ask.
They don’t want a machine that costs more than they can afford, and they want a device that can be used on an off-peak or weekend basis.
The answer to that question, it turns out, is yes.
However, most Indian consumers won’t be able to afford it.
A new report by the research firm, IDC, shows that while India is the world’s largest printer market, its printers are struggling to stay relevant.
India’s share of the world market for desktop and notebook printers grew from 16% in 2011 to 23% in 2017.
The report says India has been losing out to the Chinese and the United States, which have been building more and more powerful desktop and laptop printers over the past few years.
India, however, has been able to keep up.
The new report says the share of Indian printers growing in 2017 was about 50% compared to the share that grew in 2011.
“Despite growing market share and the introduction of some novel and expensive technologies, the share growth in the past four years has been less than 10% in terms of the share in total market share,” IDC said in a statement.
It says the growth in tablet and smartphone printers is “partly due to the development of new products, but it is also due to other factors.”
The report also points out that India’s printer market is “not yet fully mature,” which means there are a lot of questions to be answered about the viability of the current generation of printers.
For example, many of the companies that are now producing tablets and smartphones in India are still in the early stages of the technology, and many of them have only recently gotten to grips with the power of the digital ink cartridge.
Also, India has seen a slow decline in the number of tablets sold, which is “caused by a variety of factors, including the fact that many of these products have lower margins and low penetration than traditional tablets,” the report said.
And as for the number and type of printers available, the report says, “The share of printers is growing at a slower rate than the share market share.”
IDC’s report doesn’t look at the cost of printing and the print quality of the devices, but says that many consumers will be able afford the new devices and the ink cartridges.
But the report also notes that the number, quality, and availability of the ink cartridge is also a big issue.
The market for printing is changing fast, and with the proliferation of devices and ink cartridges, the demand for ink cartridges is increasing too.
But with the increasing demand for tablets and smart phones, that demand for printing will also be growing faster, the IDC report said, noting that demand growth will slow as tablets and devices with higher-resolution screens and higher screen resolutions come into the market.
