Mobile printing is expected to witness high demand in the coming years, and a large number of users are becoming increasingly interested in doing away with PCs for printing purposes. Device-based printing is also migrating towards cloud based mobile printing. Market participants can cash in on this opportunity since the majority of operating systems used for the mobile platform are not equipped for these services. As a result, print service providers, printer Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), mobile phone/tablet manufacturers, OS vendors, etc. stand to benefit from a well-developed mobile printing strategy. Since mobile phones and tablets are manufactured according to different specifications, developing a unified offering remains a considerable challenge. In order to print from mobile devices, approaches including directly printing email attachments, in-app printing, and using a print application can be employed.
Growing proliferation of smartphones and associated mobile devices, especially in the workplace, coupled with the ease of mobile printing as compared to its traditional counterpart is expected to drive the market over the next few years. Apple Inc. has integrated AirPrint into its operating system which allows users to print documents in a simple and intuitive manner. This also provides a high degree of efficiency to end users, who do not need to install an additional service on the company’s flagship products such as iPhone and iPad. Service providers have been aiming to ensure that their offering is compatible across various mobile platforms and document types. High speed, reliability, and quality are among the key attributes necessary for mobile printing, and compatibility between the media and the printer is essential for superior performance.
In order to succeed in the ecosystem, security concerns need to be addressed effectively and standardization needs to be established. The market comprises various participants such as Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), hardware manufacturers, and OS vendors. Hardware manufacturers include HP, Canon, Xerox, Lexmark, etc.; ISVs include PrinterOn, Pcounter, EFI, and Cortado among others. Apple Inc. is the key OS vendor; AirPrint allows printing through selected printers from Brother, Epson, Canon, etc.
