The Printing Industry in Austria

  • The printing industry in Austria remained relatively stable in recent years.  The revenue in printing and related services reached almost €1.8 billion in 2018 in Austria, which is slightly up compared to 2017.
  • Before, the printing industry production values remained quite stable with a slight downward trend.
  • On average, revenues dropped 1.8% per year since 2009, which is better than most other Western European countries did. COVID-19 will leave a dent in 2020 revenues, but the print industry in Austria has been proving quite resilient, hence a good portion of the drop will be made up in 2021. It should be kept in mind that not all packaging and label print is included here, and revenue from in-plant and copy shops is missing completely.
  • As a result, more people in Austria are looking for printers for sale whether from domestic sources or via imports.

  • Austrian machine producers in the plastics area, as well as corrugated cardboard producers and processors are particularly successful internationally. In display and transport, Austrian companies score points with creativity and high quality. Label manufacturers from Austria are also in international demand.

The Manufacturing Industry in Austria

  • The Austrian economic system can be defined as a free market economy with a strong social emphasis that considers society's weaker members. Austria also has a well-established economic and social partnership structure, which has historically played a powerful and reconciliatory role in wage and price policies.
  • Austria has a wealth of capital in terms of raw materials and energy production. It has iron ore, nonferrous metals, essential minerals, and earths as natural resources. However, the industrial sector's relentless expansion necessitates more and more supplementary imports. Fuels, renewable supplies, and the electricity-generating industry are all examples of this.
  • Austria has its own petroleum and natural gas reserves. The production of hydroelectric power isconstantly being increased, making Austria the European Union's pioneer in the field of hydroelectric power.
  • Hence, Austria’sexpanding manufacturing sector has increased demand for printing and industrial ink such as Videojet ink, Inkjet refills, and Hitachi parts.

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

  • Austria refers to European directives on packaging, import regulations and customs duties. In general, European Union regulations are principally quite liberal.
  • The average EU import duty is about 4%, and about 60% of products can be imported duty-free into the EU. TARIC, the EU's integrated tariff, is the basis for Austrian customs tariffs. Certain tariffs may be waived for imported products manufactured outside of the EU.
  • The Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) defines the requirements for developed countries to receive preferential import duties. There are also a number of bilateral agreements between EU member states and developing countries. A Certificate of Country of Origin must be submitted to take advantage of these preferential duties.
  • For hazardous chemicals, inspectors have the power to perform investigation on-site at all levels of the supply chain, to force the presentation of information and to take samples. In case non-compliance is suspected or detected, an individual inspector as well as the nine enforcement authorities can take measures such as giving warnings, requiring corrective measures or seizing goods. Identified cases of non-compliance are also reported to judicial authorities for sanctioning.
  • Because inks contain hazardous chemicals, it is important to follow Austria’s import regulations.

  1. Availability - The local industry has limited capacity and some clients in Austria require printers and ink promptly.
  2. High Product Cost - Given the domestic competition in Austria, 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 Austria can havevariant product quality.
