Global Industry Analysts predicts the global printing machinery and supplies market will exceed $21 billion by 2015. Market growth will be driven by increasing demand for digitalcolor presses, specialty printers and inkjet printers. Other key elements for market expansion include competitive pricing, and evolving media and technology goods. 

The US photocopier market is expected to surpass 1.5 million units by 2015, reports Global Industry Analysts. Factors fuelling the market include photocopying digitalization, and falling product prices. The market has changed in large part due to the combination of numerous technologies into one device that can carry out several functions such as scanning, faxing, printing and copying.

Product innovation through research and development allows manufacturers to offer more compact photocopiers and color printers that work at higher speeds. Businesses have increasing use for such devices as they allow them to design and print company brochures and pamphlets, negating the need to outsource parts of internal communications activity.

New technologies such as Wi-Fi and greater market penetration of multi-functional devices, are driving demand for digital photocopiers. The US photocopiers market continues to be lead by monochrome copiers.
