In April 2012, InfoTrends conducted a Web-based survey in specific regions of Latin America, including Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina. This Multi-Client study offers an in-depth view of the supplies market in Latin America, including consumers’ preferences about supplies and aftermarket activities. In conducting this survey, we hoped to gain a better understanding of the dynamics within this market, which include widespread supplies counterfeiting and heavy use of refill services for supplies. A total of 600 home respondents and 900 office respondents qualified for participation in this survey, with respondents from Brazil, Mexico, and Argentina being equally represented (200 each for home; 300 each for office).

Drupa is the largest print-related exhibition in the world. It is a cross between a world’s fair and the storming of the Bastille. It is the place where new printing technology is introduced. And much of that technology is years away.

The first thing that hits you is the sheer size of it all. It takes almost an hour to walk from one side of the messe (fairgrounds) to the other (well, at my age it does). There are the equivalent of 20 buildings filled with every kind of printing and related device on earth. And there were 170,000 people from all over the world by the mid-point of the show.

Among these emerging markets are Brazil, Russia, India, and China, also known as the BRIC countries. These countries are ripe for growth in digital photography and have common traits that will appeal to digital imaging vendors.

Low household penetration rates for digital cameras and large populations are a good combination for increased camera sales to first-time buyers; however, growth rates may be hindered to some degree by low penetration of personal computers and home Internet access, as well as low household incomes in these countries. Nevertheless, growth in these adjacent markets will help fuel the digital photography market.
