IDC Pricing Watch

Worldwide Monthly Hardcopy Peripherals Pricing Watch

Tracker image

Every quarter, over 5,000 different printer and MFP models are sold by over 60 vendors across the globe. Not surprisingly, keeping track of competitive prices by model can be a challenging proposition for any company. IDC reduces this challenge for our clients by delivering online pricing data though its Worldwide Monthly Hardcopy Peripherals Pricing Watch.

Every month, IDC captures over 30,000 printer and MFP prices from over 660 ecommerce websites across 75 countries. The data is cleaned and mapped to IDC's tracker taxonomy and then delivered in a comprehensive format so that our clients can make pricing comparisons and management decisions with timely and accurate information.

This monthly pricing service is a complementary tool to IDC's core Hardcopy Peripherals Tracker for analyzing the complete online pricing ecosystem.
