The Internet Is Not Making Paper Go Away (April 2002)

May, 2002


Despite the immense popularity of paperless media such as email and the Internet, a study by Lexmark reveals that the need for printing remains as strong as ever—and is growing. Results of the study also offer details on home and office printing and the future of printing technologies and applications, including public preferences for wireless printing, while dispelling a number of popular misconceptions about printing trends. The survey, conducted in 4Q01 by the opinion and market research firm SWR Worldwide, included 500 respondents who use computer printers both at home and in the workplace on a regular basis.
