This was the first growth — driven by the demand for low-end, cost-effective inkjet devices for home working and home education —  for the global HCP market since the second quarter of 2018.

Increases in unit shipments were observed in the three largest regional markets – the United States, Western Europe, and China. The growth was stimulated by increased working and learning from home, which require affordable printers for home-based printing.

HP and Canon posted significant year-over-year growth in global shipments at 22.7 percent and 12.1 percent respectively.

Both the inkjet and laser markets posted year-over-year growth in 3Q20, registering gains of 13.8 percent and 2.0 percent respectively.
