Following the launch of the varioPRINT iX-series in April 2020, Canon Solutions America, Inc. has seen an increase in sales of its B3 sheetfed inkjet presses alongside continued market demand for its ColorStream and new ProStream 1800 inkjet web presses. Resulting from this success, Canon has been recognized by Keypoint Intelligence as the #1 Market Share Leader for Total Production Inkjet in 2020.
Canon also led the Continuous Feed Inkjet Market Share category with 35 percent of installations largely due to the success of the ColorStream series which continues to be the most installed inkjet press worldwide. Now in its third generation, the demand for the ColorStream platform continues to be positive, and many customers have commented on its high reliability, productivity, and enhanced output—all of which have been determining qualities in its 1,500 worldwide installations.
In 2020, Canon further built on its proven reputation in the web-fed market with the launch of the high-speed ProStream 1800 inkjet web press, with early customers including DS Graphics|Universal Wilde and MWI Direct. With maximum speeds of 133m/min (ProStream 1800), this press has been recognized for reaching the highest resolution and print quality of any digital printing press at these speeds, enabling customers to achieve maximum performance with offset like quality.
“At Canon, we are focused on investing in our production inkjet product portfolio to offer our customers solutions that help them to improve efficiencies, expand their application possibilities, meet customer demands, and grow their business,” said Francis A. McMahon, executive vice president, Production Print Solutions, Canon Solutions America, Inc. “With that in mind, we are confident that our technology, combined with premium service and support, sets us apart from our competition and boosts customer confidence when investing in Canon’s inkjet presses. We take great pride that we have once again been acknowledged as the market leader for total production inkjet.”
“I am incredibly proud of the thINK Board for creating a one-of-a-kind experience for Canon Solutions America inkjet customers and partners in 2020. We will all remember the thINK Ahead 2020 virtual event for a variety of reasons, but most of all for the reminder that we all need to stay connected,” said McMahon. “We look forward to returning to an in-person thINK event for Canon Solutions America inkjet customers in 2021 with more sessions, which will allow for a smaller number of participants and social distancing. There will also be a virtual component to reach even more customers.”
