The computer industry trade association's survey of 400 IT and business executives on the found that most companies expect to maintain or increase paper usage over the next two years.
The survey found that 38% of the companies are printing more than two years ago, and another 8% said they are doing significantly more printing. Of the balance, 27% said there was no change, 23% said they were doing less printing, and 3% said they were doing significantly less printing.
Those surveyed were also asked to forecast their printing needs in the next two years, and for the most part, the percentages show little variance.
"I was surprised it wasn't on the wane more," said Tim Herbert, vice president of research at CompTia.
Herbert believes personal printing, such as printing out boarding tickets or directions, is on a downward trend, but commercial printing is maintaining its pace.
