Computer and printing rental and leasing firms compete with a wide range of other industries. These include computer retailers, large leasing and finance companies and agents with direct links to equipment manufacturers and suppliers, and computer and printer repair and maintenance companies. Therefore, competition from substitute products and services is one of the main threats to industry growth. Despite this high competition, the industry has performed strongly over the past five years and is expected to continue to produce solid results over the next five years.
Companies in the industry lease computers, computer hardware, printers and other computer peripheral equipment to consumers and corporate clients. Industry firms rent out these computer and printer products on behalf of equipment manufacturers and wholesalers. Therefore, equipment manufacturers and wholesalers are not included in the industry. Further, while industry firms may provide finance leasing, this is not the main part of their business.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
