The laser printers segment (including copiers) recorded a YoY growth of 26.3 percent as the government placed multiple orders towards the end of its financial year.

“The government demand could not be fulfilled completely because of its move to delist products with country of origin as China from Government e-Marketplace (GeM). As a result, multiple vendors were impacted since many top-selling models were delisted from GeM,” informed Bani Johri, Market Analyst, IPDS, IDC India.

According to Nishant Bansal, Senior Research Manager, IPDS, IDC India, the consumer sentiment is expected to remain muted during Q2 as the country battles the second wave of the pandemic.

“Barring any third wave of infections or a prolonged second wave, we can expect some recovery in consumer spending towards the second half of 2021. Enterprise demand is expected to remain muted in Q2 owing to state lockdowns and continued work from home forcing offices to remain closed,” Bansal noted.

Epson occupied the second position in the overall HCP market with a market share of 30.4 per cent while registering a YoY growth of 27 per cent.

Canon recorded a YoY growth of 62.1 per cent and occupied the third position in the overall India HCP market, capturing a unit market share of 22.8 per cent. In the inkjet segment, Canon observed a YoY growth of 98.6 per cent even though it struggled with the shortage of certain models.

In the inkjet segment, demand for printers remained strong from the home segment as schools and colleges continued to implement study from home.

Following this, the inkjet segment noted a YoY growth of 56.2 per cent, said the IDC.
