Earlier today, Epson announced that sales of their high-capacity ink tank inkjet printers had reached 30 million units. A very impressive milestone considering these were launched in October 2010. By the end of the last financial year, Epson had introduced high-capacity ink tank printers to around 150 countries and regions. Maintaining the number one share in the inkjet printer market, Epson attributes much of this growth from emerging economies.
“High-capacity ink tank inkjet printers have a low environmental footprint, have lower running costs, and allow users to print freely and with less effort compared to laser printers and ink cartridge printers. Epson has transformed the printer business model, and will continue to provide comfortable printing environments that allow our customers around the world to demonstrate their creativity and enjoy high productivity.” – Koichi Kubota, Director, Senior Managing Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer, Printing Solutions Operations Division of Seiko Epson
