All or nearly all of these cartridges are made in China though location of manufacturer is not part of the definition. For the purpose of this research simple bottle toner is outside of scope. Clone cartridges tend to be of very low manufacturing cost and so are frequently offered for sale to the end customer at prices significantly below not just OEM supplies but remanufactured cartridges as well. While remanufactured cartridges are often priced at 20-30% below OEM price, clones can be priced as low as 20-30% of OEM price making it very difficult for OEM and remanufactured cartridges to compete. While low price is problematic for OEMs and remanufacturers, the problem is compounded by the prevailing observation in the industry that clone cartridges also carry a high risk of patent infringement. OEMs are clearly concerned about patent infringement for obvious reasons, but so are remanufacturers who find themselves in a position unable to compete on price but frequently afraid to sell clones or use their empties for risk of lawsuit.
Because resellers are the route to market for clones, there is a strong need to understand what the channels believe or do not believe about clones, their awareness across various risk factors on clones and what education is required in the channel to potentially reduce the negative impact of clones on the industry. The focus of this need appears to be the Internet channels, but this research will not ignore traditional channels.
When it comes to the Internet, but also not ignoring traditional channels, there appears to be an issue of product labeling and representation making it difficult to even identify clone products based on their descriptions with any amount of certainty. Sometimes price is the first best way to identify a product that may be a clone.
