We have continued our upward trajectory having been placed first overall in unit sales for the first half of 2019 with a market share of 14.6%, and we thank you for your hard work and dedication.
InfoSource’s latest research which shows market sizing data in the Office automation industry in the Southern African region for the first half of 2019 showed that we have maintained our overallposition as the leading seller of MFPs in South Africa from the last quarter of 2018, with a solid performance across colour and mono devices.
The numbers also showed our A4 MFPs retaining their position in first place with a 19.2% market share ahead of second place at a market share of 11,5%, a result which proves that the products are continuing to meet the standards of quality and the needs of the customers and you, our partners, are continuing to do great work.
Our A3 MFP range maintained its 4th position overall, with a solid market share of 10.1%, however this is expected to rise with the continued uptake of the new range of mid to high volume A3 devices, released earlier this year. As you know, the printers boast improved security features where a data security kit comes standard, ensuring the company’s commitment, and adherence to the high standards of ISO27001; a proximity sensor, which senses a user approaching and prepares itself for use; as well as a larger (10,1 inch) colour touchscreen display.
The combined effort across the globe to reposition our brand and to define a uniform, worldwide brand message of ‘Putting Knowledge to Work’ is the compass for all Kyocera sales organisations worldwide and guides the strategic direction of the company.
We look forward to working together to achieve another year of record market share for CY2020.
