The Indian printer cartridge industry is being driven by the growing electronics sector in the region, leading to the increased penetration of PCs and printers in the region. With the increasing demand for printers, the market is witnessing a healthy growth. In 2020, the inkjet printer shipments in the region grew YoY by 5.6% led primarily by Epson. The major factor driving the industry further is the rising demand for ink tank printers which recorded YoY growth of nearly 20% in its shipments in the region, the highest growth in the last five quarters. While the overall laser printer market declined YoY by 12%, the copier segment grew by 19% YoY, recording the highest shipment ever in the year. The key manufacturers are switching from ink cartridge printers to high-capacity ink tank printers as they offer a smaller environmental footprint than laser printers and even ink cartridge printers, further offering a huge value by sharply lower printing costs. The copier market grew as a result of its strong demand from the government sector and the government’s continued tight monitoring of the refurbished copier market. These developments in the printer market are expected to support the growth of the India printer cartridge market positively.
In compatible cartridges, consumers can save 50-60% as compared to buying an OEM cartridge. Further, the popularity of refilled and non-OEM cartridges is on the rise, and their growing demand can be attributed to factors like the high cost of OEM cartridges combined with the emergence of refills and remanufacturers with better equipment and good quality raw material (inks and so on) in recent years.

The Indian printer cartridge industry is being driven by the growth of the print consumables market in the region, alongside the expanding printer industry. The consumables market relies directly on the number of installed printers in the region. The market potential for compatible cartridges, among different types of printer cartridge, is good due to the high cost of OEM cartridges and low quality of refilled cartridges and remanufactured cartridges. However, compatible cartridge brands have seen a dip due to the presence of numerous refill outlets, local remanufactured brands, Chinese cartridges, and fake cartridges.

The increased literacy rate has a direct positive effect on the rise of the circulation of papers and magazines in the region. Further, the rapid advancement in technology has prompted many industries to make the transition from analogue to digital, thus, making the printing industry adopt digital technology. Many segments of the printing industry are replacing offset printing with digital, which is expected to experience remarkable growth over the next few years. The printers with these services are already seeing key benefits, including improved customer satisfaction and increased profitable revenue. Digital printing is on the rise, and its demands from the print customers are increasingly being met with digital printing and related services.
