“The MPS growth premise that the tough economic climate is one of the main drivers continues to hold true. Companies are forced into more effective cost measures, while simultaneously increasing productivity and efficiency. MPS closes this value gap,” said Ed Crowley, Photizo CEO and founder.
The competition for global MPS market share continued to be close with Xerox/Fuji Xerox ahead of HP by only 1 percent. Both organizations increased their global share. Xerox/Fuji Xerox led market share in Asia Pacific and Latin America, while the struggle to maintain market share in the EMEA intensified. HP maintained the lead market share position in North America. Ricoh, Canon and Lexmark respectively rounded out the third, fourth and fifth positions for global market share.
On a global scale, the 2011 MPS Market Size, Share and Forecast Study indicated a balance of SMB channel-to-direct market proportion due to a surge of enterprise demand in North America. Demand in the SMB continues to grow with the strongest relative (to direct/OEMs)
“Across the board, we continue to see a strong shift from hardware to services and solutions on the global scale.” Said Keng Keng Tan, vice president of research, consulting and info services for Photizo Group. “Revenue per device and revenue from services, supplies and solutions are steadily increasing.”
Data from the 2011 MPS Market Size, Share and Forecast Study predicts the average revenue per device will surge after 2013 due to more efficient deployment and service revenues growth. Photizo expects nearly half of printing revenue to be under MPS contract by 2014.
