The Printing Industry in Armenia

  • As the economy in Armenia has grown, there is an increased need to buy printers, consumables such as inks and makeups and cleaning solutions.
  • The media industry is structured in a manner that separates newspaper editorial offices from the printing and distribution services. Both of the latter were state-owned monopolies until the privatization process that began in 2001.
  • The price of newsprint is a major portion of printing costs. Armenia has no local production and imports newsprint from Russia. Costs are double those in Russia, due to the small market size and transportation costs.
  • Even today, in the age of electronic media, annual growth rates in book production and other commercial printing materials are still recorded. Flexographic printing, stamping, lamination of labels and packaging films used in food industry.
  • As a result, more people in Armenia are looking for printers for sale whether from domestic sources or via imports.

What Regulations Are There on Importing Printers and Ink to Armenia?

  • There is a lack of clarity in many areas such as import licensing, customs procedures, and intellectual property rights enforcement, particularly since Armenia’s accession to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) and the adoption of the EAEU Customs Code.
  • U.S. companies may face a number of tariff and non-tariff trade barriers when exporting to Armenia.  Another potential issue is the EAEU’s complex system of standardization, which is based on Russia’s standardization regime.
  • Membership in the EAEU is forcing Armenia to apply stricter standardization, sanitary, and phytosanitary requirements in line with EAEU—and, by extension, Russian—standards, regulations, and practices.
  • Customs officials require importers to present a customs declaration form with a commercial invoice indicating the specifications, quantity, and value of goods being imported.  Armenia’s customs authority has implemented an on-line declaration process (Direct Trader Input, or DTI) that reduces personal contact between customs officials and importers.
  • Usual customs procedure such as submission of goods declaration with necessary import documents to the Customs authority and release order of Customs is necessary for Dangerous Goods.
  • Because inks contain hazardous chemicals, it is important to follow Armenia’s import regulations.

  1. Availability - The local industry has limited capacity and some clients in Armenia require printers and ink promptly.
  2. High Product Cost - Given the domestic competition in Armenia, printers and the continuous ink supply are more expensive to buy domestically than on the world market.
  3. Product Quality - While most international suppliers have a good brand reputation and quality, some smaller domestic manufacturers in Armenia can have variant product quality.
