VDC to Conduct First Market Research on Mobile Transaction Printers

12/17/2004 - VDC is pleased to announce our upcoming market research report, "Mobile Transaction Printers: Global Market Demand Analysis." This cutting edge report will feature detailed market segmentation and analysis on bar code ticket/tag/label, receipt, and invoice printers as well as related document printing applications covering the Americas, Europe, Middle East, African and Asia-Pacific regions.

Mobile printing solutions are employed across such diverse applications as retail, field sales and service logistics/transportation/distribution, government, hospitality, health care, warehousing, gaming, manufacturing, and route accounting. The technology is utilized in hand held mobile computers, belt/strap, vehicle mount, and cart-mount form factors.

According to Taylor Smith, AIDC Project Director, "Findings from VDC's latest study, 'Enterprise Mobility Solutions,' estimates 2004 worldwide shipments of mobile computers at more than 8 million units - exceeding 12.5 million units by 2008. This represents a huge potential market for mobile printer sales with a modest 10% integration resulting in roughly 1 million printer shipments a year."

Mobile printers are increasingly providing higher employee productivity and improved customer service levels in a wide variety of industries/sectors, and users are finding value in purchases. The increasing adoption of wireless communications as a means to enhance operational efficiency and improve profitability is a key factor that will propel demand for mobile printers far into the future.

Since 1985, VDC has been the leading source of market research and consulting services for a host of AIDC/RFID hardware, software, and systems solutions, as well as other mobile computing and wireless communications systems.
