What printer cartridges are the most popular of them all?

Our sponsor ABC Print Supplies, has been marketing genuine, remanufactured, and compatible ink & toner cartridges for over 5 years, and have researched this information over that period of time, using Google Analytics, to determine which is the most popular printer cartridge.
They advise that they sell approx. 4,000 different cartridges of all the above types, through 24 brand names.
Of the 24 brands, there are 5 brands which stand out from their competitors, whether, genuine, remanufactured, or compatible.
These brands are: Brother, Canon, Epson, HP, and Xerox.
Of those brands, the following market share, consisting of both genuine and compatible/remanufactured printer cartridges,  indicates their popularity:

Xerox            6.94%
Epson           17.24%
Canon          19.64%
Brother         22.59%

As indicated, HP accounts for approx a third of sales of the 5 most popular brands over a five year period
The most popular cartridge offered by HP for ink is the HP920XL black and colour cartridges for the OFFICEJET 6000, OFFICEJET 6500, OFFICEJET 7000, OFFICEJET 7500A HP printers, and the HP# 78 (CE278A) Mono laser Cartridge for the LASERJET PRO M1536, LASERJET PRO P1566, LASERJET PRO P1606, LASERJET PRO M1530 printers
