Strong Southeast Asian Printing & Imaging Industry Paves Way for RechargExpo Asia Sept. 201215 Feb, 2012
Los Angeles, CA - February 13, 2012 - A continuing upward trend in Southeast Asia’s fast growing printing and imaging market has prompted Recharge Asia Corp. to once again hold its annual imaging and printing consumables exposition, RechargExpo Southeast Asia 2012 at the Jakarta International Event and Exhibition Centre (JITEC) on September 13 to 15, 2012.
Data from global research company International Data Corporation (IDC) corroborates this trend. According to IDC Asia/Pacific, the printer consumables market in the Asia/Pacific region, excluding Japan (APEJ), grew 2.39% sequentially and 8.25% year-on-year to reach US$1,631.34 million in Q3 2011. They also stated that out of the total consumables market in that region, compatible brands contribute more than US$300 million, which is approximately 20% of the total value.
Furthermore, in emerging economies like India and the PRC, compatible or aftermarket brands contribute approximately 30% of the total consumables market in terms of value. In unit terms, however, compatible players claim a greater share and are much higher, contributing approximately 40% of the total units shipped on an overall basis. In emerging economies like India, Indonesia and Thailand, compatible players have more than 50% share of total consumable market in unit terms.
