$60B Global Toner Cartridge Market Sees Aftermarket Suppliers Continue to Increase Share

Virtulytix Releases 2018 Global Toner Cartridge Forecast

Virtulytix announces the release of the 2018 Global Toner Cartridge Forecast. The forecast covers 2018 to 2022 and includes historical data for 2014 to 2017 providing a global view of the toner cartridge market. The forecast includes pivot tables to view forecasts by region and by metrics such as actual and forecasted unit shipments, growth rates, revenue, average selling prices, and printer installed base for each cartridge type. OEM and Aftermarket (non-OEM) information is included across 24 laser printer and MFP segments.

The size of the global toner cartridge market is approximately $60 billion. Printer manufacturers, aftermarket cartridge suppliers, resellers, and MPS providers will find the Virtulytix Global Toner Cartridge Forecast helpful in understanding trends and areas of opportunity or risks. Multiple views of the forecast can be created to include some or all of the following data:

·       Regions - North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Rest of EMEA, Japan, and Rest of Asia

·       Hardware Segment – Monochrome Printer, Monochrome MFP, Color Printer, Color MFP

·       Hardware Size – A4, A3

·       Vendor

·       Cartridge Color – Monochrome, C, M, Y, K

·       Cartridge Source – OEM, Aftermarket (non-OEM)

·       Market Shares – Shipments, Revenue

As an example, the global forecast shows that 30% to 33% of monochrome cartridge shipments have been captured by Aftermarket suppliers. Yet OEM suppliers have retained above 75% of the monochrome cartridge revenue. In color toner cartridge shipments Aftermarket suppliers have captured only 13% of the shipments by 2018 and while OEM suppliers have enjoyed an above 90% share of color cartridge shipments and revenue these shares are in decline. Virtulytix foresees the relative monochrome share trends continuing, however, OEM color shipments and revenue will continue to decline as Aftermarket suppliers increase their technology assets and provide print quality rivaling the OEM suppliers. According to Ron Iversen, VP Market Intelligence for Virtulytix, “Aftermarket toner cartridge suppliers are targeting the growing mid-high speed color MFP segments where cartridge usage is quite high. With almost 80% of the toner cartridge market existing in the color area this is clearly the biggest risk to OEM manufacturers”.

The Global 2018 Toner Cartridge forecast will be available for ordering on the  Virtulytix website in February. For immediate ordering as well as Regional and other customized views, and forecast insight reviews contact Ron Iversen, VP Market Intelligence, at +1 805 630 4096 or at
