Top 10 Small Business Printers










Research Strategy

To formulate the list of top 10 small business printers, we first searched poll databases such as Ranker to find relevant polls on top small business printers. This, however, did not provide us the desired results. We got results such as best printer companies and best printer brands.

We then searched industry publications such as The Consumer Guide, CNET, and Techradar Pro, which provided their lists based on various factors such as efficiency, value, performance, and design. We then compiled a list of all printers that were mentioned in each article. From the list, we selected the printers that were repeatedly mentioned and then cross-referenced our results with the customer ratings for each product on consumer review platforms, such as Amazon, to finalize our list of top 10 printers used by small businesses.

RESEARCH STRATEGY

In starting our findings, we searched for available metrics to measure the top ten most commonly used high-volume printers in the US. We started by checking available public media domains such as Forbes, Reuters, and Bloomberg, but there were no available data on such information. The concentration on these sites dwelt more on features of the latest products.

Secondly, we went through the database of research platforms like Statista, IBIS, and Keypoint Intelligence for this key information but none was available. We attributed this lack of data to no available study in the public domain on preferred printers used in the US. We, however, came across some interesting insights on vertical marketing on Keypoint Intelligence.

In our third attempt, we tried to use the gross earning income segment of high-volume printer manufacturers in the US to evaluate the top ten most commonly used high-volume printers. Unfortunately, this data wasn't available too and our conclusion was because the earning segments for types of printers are not segmented in any study available on public domains.

In the constraints of getting available metrics, we decided to triangulate using brands that are leading in vertical markets such as legal, manufacturing, logistics, and retail. There were five of them in October 2018 and they are: Konica Minolta Business Solutions U.S.A., Inc., Ricoh USA, Inc. (legal), Lexmark International, Inc. (manufacturing), Toshiba America Business Solutions, Inc. (logistics), and HP Inc. (retail). Also, Canon has been ranked number one for three consecutive years for the largest market share. On the other hand, we considered the top best high-volume printers based on small and midsize businesses associated with online reviews and market specs. By triangulating the leading brands and the top best high-volume printers in the US, we generated this list of the top ten printers based on their common usage and their high-volume capabilities.
