Where's the biggest growth in the MPS market? Doc's not all that surprised it's the Asia Pacific region – business is still decent there, and it's a large region with a lot of diversity.
The Asia Pacific managed print services (MPS) market will grow by 64% through 2013, faster than any other region in the world according to the 2010 Market Size Share and Forecast analysis published by Photizo Group. Six of the top 10 fastest growing markets for MPS are located in Asia Pacific. The growth is 10% higher than forecast for the second fastest growing region, Latin America, and twice as much as anticipated for Europe.
Photizo's Asia Pacific MPS Conference 2011 taking place in Sydney, Australia from October 31st – November 1st , will examine the wealth of opportunities presented by the rapid growth forecast for the region's MPS market. The conference addresses the needs of both dealers and end users, with in-depth conference streams, case studies, and panel discussions.
"We see channel partners playing a significant role in driving adoption in the SMB market which is a key sector for this region." said Keng Keng Tan, VP Market Research-Consulting-Info Services and managing director for Photizo Group, Asia Pacific. "According to our forecasts the MPS market will generate revenue of 68 billion US dollars by 2014. The companies who are able to capitalize on the opportunities the MPS market provides will reap significant rewards over the next few years."
On average an organization will save 30% in costs after they first implement an MPS program and reduce hardcopy fleet carbon emissions by 60%. For those companies with the strategic vision and foresight to think beyond the short- to medium-term benefits, it can also pave the way for real business change at a grassroots level.
Doc would be happy to attend the Photizo conference in Sydney – anyone willing to "sponsor" his trip?
