Move over Printers, Multifunctions are taking over!

In a recent Photizo Group forecast they found an interesting trend in the recent purchases of printers and multifunction printers (MFP’s). While the single function printer market is on the decline, the multifunction printer market is overtaking the market share. A reflection of todays paperless society some might say, however there is more than meets the eye behind this current trend.

In recent years the MFP market has had an unparalleled price decrease of around 30% making the price difference between printers and MFP’s fairly insignificant and makes it very easy for the consumer to spend that little extra for all the additional features of an MFP. Along with a price decrease there has also come quality increases making them even more irresistible! For only a little more money you can have added quality, functionality and eliminate the need for other office equipment.

The other reason the Photizo Group attributes to the increase of the MFP’s market share in the printing world is our increased need to share files digitally, & this is one of the things MFP’s do best. Electronic communications for business is essential and with MFP’s enabling a majority of the file sharing to happen from a single device, pointing to the inevitable dominance of MFP’s.
