The global managed print services (MPS) market is divided in Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3, based on end-use penetration, service portfolio, and geographical presence.

Rising CSR Activities across Companies to Boost Growth
CSR activities have become integral to many organizations around the world as they seek complying with government regulations, thereby mitigating the adverse environmental impacts through their services. Unorganized printing activities across large enterprises have a significant effect on the optimized usage of paper. In order to reduce environmental impact of such unaccounted activities, enterprises are adopting managed print services. As the deployment of these services ensures optimal use of printing pater. The technology also helps enterprises discard redundant printers.
“Due to the string of benefits they provide, the managed print services help enterprises in reducing overall cost incurred on printing,” said a lead TMR analyst. This is a key factor encouraging the uptake of MPS across enterprises. Besides this, MPS also helps in reducing energy consumption in enterprises.
Lower Penetration in SMBs Acting as Major Restraint
On the downside, the lack of awareness among SMBs has limited the adoption of managed printed services only to large enterprises. Furthermore, smaller enterprises with less than 5 MPS can find it difficult to achieve higher ROI from the deployment of the service. This could hamper the market’s growth in the long run. To counter these bottlenecks, several organizations are moving towards digitization. While the development has encouraged organizations share and distribute valuable data via digital medium, it has been threatening to restrain the growth trajectory of the global management print services market.
Nonetheless, the players see lucrative opportunities as they aim capitalizing on the untapped potential in SMBs. While the penetration of MPS is currently low in the SMB sector, manufacturers are taking calculated initiatives to gain growth in the segment. This is expected to provide significant growth opportunities for the market in the near future.
