U.S. Laser A3/A4 MFP Forecast, 2021-2025
This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the U.S. laser A3/A4 MFP market."A4 has long enjoyed advantages over A3 in lower acquisition costs, lower service requirements, and smaller footprint. The latest developments, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, demonstrate that A4's evolution includes the addition of higher performance capabilities," said Geoffrey Wilbur, research manager of IDC's Imaging, Printing, and Document Solutions research. "This means that A3 is expected to have an increased challenge in maintaining its presence in the future office printing market. This forecast does not eliminate A3, but its vulnerability is now at a higher level than it was previously."
