Konica Minolta placed number two in Southeast Asia in 2016 with a 20% market share, as it continues to exhibit year-on-year growth.
“According to a third party report, we are number one in Indonesia and Vietnam, and number two in the Philippines and Malaysia. We see traction in countries like Sri Lanka and Bangladesh as well, which are hotspots for digital print,” said Yeo.
Southeast Asia holds double digit growth for digital production printing: “We see great potential for Asia. There is a higher adoption rate for digital printing in this region, where it tends to be costly to maintain an offset machine, and buyers are looking into the shorter runs. Packaging is also an area of growth as well. As a customer-centric organisation, our new series aims to help digital print provider realise their business goals and shape their success,” Yeo continued.
