With more than 200 million fax machines in use worldwide, it is often hard to know how many are out there.
But a study by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) this week found that a growing number of companies are turning to big fax machines as a way to cut costs and keep up with rising demand.
The report, which looked at companies that use big faxes to deliver faxes, also found that companies are increasingly using big machines to send text messages and other electronic messages.
It was the first study of its kind, and the FTC said that the results were based on data collected from nearly 150,000 companies.
The FTC study found that the use of big faxed faxes increased from 9 percent in 2010 to 20 percent in 2020, with an average of 6 percent growth per year.
The survey also found companies were using big faxing machines to do things like: Send e-mails, make phone calls and deliver mail, and process credit card transactions.
The most common reasons for the use was to increase the size of their customer base, the report found.
Another common reason was to save money, which was cited by about half of the companies surveyed.
The number of big-fax machines has grown more than 50 percent since 2010, according to the FTC, and most of them are in the U.S. Big-favoring companies have become increasingly popular in recent years.
Google and Amazon both recently moved into big-fax business.
But in the past few years, some big-company owners have been moving away from big-screen displays to bigger screens, with the result that there has been a drop in the use, according the FTC.
The main reasons companies use big machines are to reduce cost, speed up processing and to reduce their physical footprint, said Richard B. Wiedefeld, the FTC’s deputy director for investigations.
“Fax machines are often used to process large numbers of electronic messages and are also used to send texts, e-mail and other forms of electronic communication,” he said in a statement.
The use of fax machines is also growing in the European Union, which is grappling with the growing problem of mass fraud.
Last year, EU member states approved a new law to make it easier for companies to use fax machines to make international payments.
The law requires all companies in the EU to offer the option of using big-capacity fax machines for sending and receiving electronic payments.
But the law also requires them to inform customers about the option, according, the EU’s National Bankers Association, a lobby group for the European financial services industry.
The EU law will come into effect from March 1, 2020.
The commission said the data collected in its survey showed that companies were also using big machine to send e-books, movies, and other video files, as well as other digital goods.
A typical company used about 200 big-sized fax machines per day in the United States, according a report by the National Conference of State Legislatures.
The average daily use of the machines by the companies in their top 25 markets was about 2,400.
The study found companies in many of the top 25 countries were using a variety of machines, including fax machines, to send large amounts of electronic documents.
A majority of the big-size fax machines used by big companies in Europe were in the West.
In the U: In the European Parliament, the most popular type of big machine used by companies was the SFR-100, according data from the European Commission.
In some countries, such as Belgium, Denmark, Germany, France, Italy, Norway, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland, it was the fax-machine used by the government.
And in the Netherlands, Germany and France, it’s also the most used big-cap machine used in Europe, according FCC data.
The biggest use of a big-type fax machine is in the USA, where the most commonly used big machines in the top 50 markets were the FDM-1000, FDM 600 and FDM 300, according commission data.
FDM is a type of digital fax that uses a magnet, a metal rod, and a mechanical attachment to create a screen for sending a digital image.
The machines are sometimes referred to as “fiber-optic” or “multi-chip” machines.
The FCC study said that about three-quarters of the biggest-capacity big-facsimile machines in Europe are used to transfer large amounts to large numbers in the US.
Another third are used for transferring electronic documents to other machines.
In Europe, big-chip machines account for a third of the largest-capacity machines, according FTC data.
Big machines are increasingly popular with companies looking to save on costs, according B.A. Mankiewicz, a senior vice president for regulatory affairs at the Association of American Publishers.
Companies are using big systems to reduce physical footprint and increase the number of fax messages and e-book files they send.
