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).
