EEC COMMISSION TO INVESTIGATE JAPANESE SALES OF MATRIX AND DAISYWHEEL PRINTERS IN EUROPE

The EEC Commission is following up its investigation of alleged dumping of semiconductors in Europe by instituting a similar probe of matrix and daisywheel printers from Japan, at the behest of the Committee of European Printer Manufacturers: the Commission reckons that Japan sold 1.52m matrix printers in Europe last year, up from 255,000 in 1983, and that its market share rose to 74% from 52% while European manufacturers’ share plummeted to 11% from 35%; in daisywheel printers, it reckons Japanese sales rose 40% to 195,000 units over the same period, raising its market share to 74% from 70%, while European makers’ share fell to 7.5% from 12%.
