GENEVA, July 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Document capture solutions are helping businesses simplify their labor-intensive and costly paper processes. According to a new industry report published by infoSource, sales of document imaging class scanners exceeded $1.19B in revenues and 900,000 unit shipments across the Americas region last year. A new wave of price/performance improvements gives users even more compelling reasons to adopt scanning technologies, and the impact is expanding beyond the dominant US market.
The Unites States and Canada represent a significant portion of the Americas scanner market, however, shipments into emerging Latin American countries are on the rise. "Despite variable conditions, new opportunities across Latin America are especially compelling," said Mark Nicholson, infoSource Service Director. "Each country is evolving technologically and economically, and scanner manufacturers are vying to meet the new demand." The Americas region offers a range of mature and developing market opportunities that vendors must navigate effectively to be successful.
