Abstract - Ukraine Hardcopy Peripherals Market 2018 Analysis and Vendor Profiles | Исследования | IDC Ukraine


Epson recorded strong unit and value growth thanks to large-scale sales in the education sector in H2 2018. While the vendor has traditionally led the Ukrainian inkjet market in unit terms, in 2018 it took the lead in value for the first time. However, the vendor faces serious competition from Canon and HP Inc. in ITS technology, a product segment that Epson has traditionally dominated and in which it enjoyed a monopoly position for several years.

"After a period of strong HCP market growth driven by deferred demand and positive economic dynamics, vendors in Ukraine may face a period of stagnation. The chances of an economic slowdown have grown due to politicking connected to the presidential and parliamentary elections. In this situation, an increased focus on print services may help secure revenue streams. Not only are more organizations deciding to minimize non-core assets and adopt IT outsourcing, but the IT services market has proven to be less vulnerable to negative processes in the economy in recent years."— Program Manager Oleksiy Gvozdenko, IDC Ukraine
