Chennai, May 19 (IANS) Samsung India Electronics is targeting a 30 percent market share in the laser printers market.
‘The laser printer market this year is expected to be 950,000 units up from around 850,000 units last year. Last year we stabilised our laser printer business and in 2010 our plan is to increase our market share to 30 percent,’ Ranjit Yadav, director, mobile and IT business, told reporters here.
Apart from the world’s smallest printer ML-1666, the company has launched three mono laser and multi functional printers.
He said printers, LCD monitors and notebook computers are the growth drivers for Samsung Electronics’ IT business this year.
Uday Bhat, general manager, IT solutions business, said the target for the current year is to occupy the second slot in the laser printer business.
