IDC figures show Ricoh improved its market share in EMEA across several sectors despite the challenging business environment in 2020.

Sales of the EDP award-winning, entry-level Ricoh Pro C5300s Series sheetfed color press lifted the company’s market share in key areas according to IDC’s Quarterly Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker 2021Q1.

 Ricoh’s unit market share reports:

  • The company’s unit market share increased from 22.1% in 2019 to 26.8 % in 2020 in IDC’s total color laser production category for the EMEA region.
  • In IDC’s color laser light production category (color light & color very light), the company’s unit market share increased from 22.6% in 2019 to 27.6% in 2020.

The Ricoh Pro C5300s Series is the newest model range in the company’s sheetfed portfolio. It was developed to enable print service providers, print-on-demand environments, and corporate reprographics departments to responsively produce small to medium run-length applications, including brochures, catalogs, postcards, and envelopes.

Building on the success of its predecessor, Pro C5200s, it enables greater production flexibility, higher print quality, and a broader service offering.

Eef de Ridder, company’s vice president, Graphic Communications Group, says: “These market share gains in several key sectors show how the Ricoh Pro C5300 has answered a clear demand. During an exceptionally challenging time, print environments want a high-quality light production versatile solution. The ability to produce many creative applications at 80ppm, with a monthly duty cycle of 450,000, delivers flexible productivity that drives profitability.”


In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
