The Printing Industry in New Zealand

  • As the economy in New Zealand has grown, there is an increased need to buy printers, consumables such as inks and makeups and cleaning solutions.
  • Printing and reprographic services are the mainstays of the industry. Offset lithographic, reprographic, optical, relief, and screen printing are examples of printing methods. Printing can be done on a variety of surfaces, including paper, plastic, and metal. Companies that specialize in screen printing on clothing are also included in the industry.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic is predicted to have a minor impact on the printing industry. The industry's revenue is expected to drop by 6.4 percent this year, owing to increased internet use. Owing to economic instability and decreased discretionary spending, demand from some key markets has dwindled.
  • The increasing accessibility of printing equipment would almost certainly increase the use of in-house printing, displacing industry services. Nonetheless, growing retail activity, especially online retail activity, is expected to help sales over the next five years.
  • As a result, more people in New Zealand are looking for printers for sale whether from domestic sources or via imports.

The Packaging Industry in New Zealand

  • In New Zealand, the Packaging Services industry plays an important role in the supply chains of various producers and wholesalers. The fortunes of the industry are primarily determined by the output of the manufacturing and wholesaling industries, which account for the majority of industry demand.
  • Agriculture companies and wholesalers have been gradually contracting industry operators to fulfill their packaging needs in order to cut costs and retain a competitive advantage over cheaper imports over the last five years. Furthermore, a growing number of manufacturers and wholesalers have committed to eliminating waste and advocating for more environmentally friendly packaging options.
  • Over the next five years, the Packaging Services industry is expected to perform well. Although these are expected to remain the industry's primary markets, other companies, such as online retailers, will likely have a rising impact on total domestic packaging demand.
  • This boosting economyin New Zealand will continue to drive demand for industrial inkjet printer, printing equipment, printing parts, printing consumables such as inks, make ups and cleaning solutions.

The Manufacturing Industry in New Zealand

  • While the construction, meat, and dairy industries are experiencing strong growth, conventional large-scale consumer manufacturing is declining in New Zealand. This is mostly due to foreign rivals who have higher scale efficiencies and lower labor costs.
  • Most of New Zealand's manufacturing is now business-to-business, with companies producing small batches of highly specialized, niche, and bespoke products for their customers. Manufacturing has changed as a result of globalization and technology, with new and improved ways of doing business emerging to meet evolving commercial and customer demands.
  • With a significant rise in lean manufacturing, New Zealand factories are transitioning from cost-based to quality-based operations. Outsourcing a portion of a company's manufacturing process to countries with scale economies will save money for certain businesses.
  • Hence, New Zealand’s expanding 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 New Zealand?

  • All commercial or company products entering New Zealand must be announced. No later than 20 days afterthe goods arrive, you must file the details of your imports with Customs via the import entry clearance process. MPI also prefers (and often requires) that you send your information ahead of time. The amount of time you can plan ahead depends on how your orders will be shipped.
  • You won't be able to pick up your items until Customs has approved your import entry clearance, confirmed the duties and charges, and confirmed any other requirements that might apply, such as MPI biosecurity clearances.
  • Before you can file your import paperwork, you must first register. There are two registrations required:
  1. Register for a declarant code and a unique user identifier (UUI) with Customs, which will allow you to use the online services and EDI apps.
  2. Register with the Electronic Commerce Network, which, on behalf of Customs, operates the online declarations scheme.
  • Before you can import, produce, or use a hazardous material, it must first be licensed under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act. Each hazardous material is assigned an approval number until it has been approved. There can only be one approval number for each substance. Any new combination of substances will result in the formation of anew substance.
  • Because inks contain hazardous chemicals, it is important to follow New Zealand’s importregulations.

  2. High Product Cost - Given the domestic competition in New Zealand, 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 New Zealand can havevariant product quality.
