China’s original toner cartridge market was downward in the first quarter due to the epidemic backlash. According to the Chinese Quarterly Print Consumables Market Tracker researched by IDC, shipments of 2.437 million original laser printer toner cartridges in China in the first quarter of 2022 fell by 2.0% year-on-year, 17.3% sequentially in the first quarter of 2021. In particular, due to the epidemic closure and control, certain manufacturers with central dispatch warehouses in and around Shanghai could not supply, resulting in a shortage of supply and lower product shipments. As of the end of this month, the closure, which extended for nearly two months, will be a record low for many original consumables manufacturers in terms of shipments in the next quarter. At the same time, the epidemic’s impact has been a considerable challenge in dampening demand.
