Target market for FM providers, says InfoTrends/CAP Ventures
The 50,500 in-plant printing facilities in the US generated approximately $15.8 billion in revenues in 2003, according to InfoTrends/CAP Ventures. The Weymouth, MA-based consulting group reports that in-plant printing facilities can be further divided into: traditional in-plant print shops, which numbers just 10,400, but generate the lion's share of the revenues--$12.6 billion; and small copy/print sites, which number more than 40,100 and generate $3.2 billion.
The in-plant print market has historically been a target market for facilities-management (FM) providers, says InfoTrends/CAP Ventures, and these providers typically target the small copy/print sites.
