Epson is aiming to achieve 25 per cent growth in its Indian business this year.

The ink cartridges provider is hoping that its latest inkjet office printers will help to attain this objective, with one representative claiming that the systems can replace laser machines in the country, reports

Ram Prasad, deputy general manager of consumer products at Epson India, said: "Inkjets used dye-based ink earlier and hence the print didn’t last for more than two years. The latest toners come with pigment-based ink. Compared to genuine laser toners, they are 100 times cheaper."

Mr Prasad added that lasers may not be reliable because many parts of India suffer power cuts and the systems must be connected to single battery inverters.

Recently, Epson boosted its operations in India by launching its nSolution programme in an effort to improve relations with partners in Kerala.

Kerala IT News reported that the manufacturer is hoping for the initiative to reach out to roughly 1,500 current and potential partners.
