This IDC Survey Spotlight examines the Wave 11 data collected from August 26 to September 6 and compares it with the past 10 data sets, starting in March.

In this 11th data set, the worldwide printer spending trends very negatively. It shows the lowest level of positive response and the highest negative response since early April. Negative responses increased by seven points, while positive responses fell by six points. Since May 21, positive responses have exhibited an up-and-down trend that continued in these results.

We continue to examine the massive impact that the COVID-19 crisis has had on the global economy and IT spending. Its presence has literally shutdown worldwide operations in business, in education, and across all facets of society.

In this latest data set, IDC combines the responses from Waves 1–11 to provide a timeline over the past several months regarding the perceptions and expectations for worldwide printer spending trends.
