The Printing Industry in Tunisia

  • As the economy in Tunisia has grown, there is an increased need to buy printers, consumables such as inks and makeups and cleaning solutions.
  •  According to the report, and according to experts, the food and pharmaceutical packaging sectors are driving the growth of the printing industry in Tunisia. The printing industry is booming due to the large and growing middle class, as well as the growth of organized retailing in the region.
  • The rapid growth of exports, which necessitates superior packaging standards for the international market, is another factor that has given significant stimulus to the printing machinery industry. As a result, the need for Indian companies to implement better printing methods, materials, and machinery to guarantee quality has become critical.
  • The print-packaging industry has already made the transition from heavy machinery to software-based operations. Digital printing, also known as fast printing, is the industry's second-largest category, mostly used by small businesses in need of quick turnaround printing solutions.
  • As a result, more people in Tunisia are looking for printers for sale whether from domestic sources or via imports.

The Manufacturing Industry in Tunisia

  • Tunisia has pursued an economic model based on exports and industrialization since the 1970s, which has been supported by the passage of investor-friendly legislation and public investment in infrastructure and human resources. Manufacturing has been the foundation of the country's GDP growth for the past 40 years, demonstrating the effectiveness of this strategy.
  • Textiles, agribusiness, pharmaceuticals, and mechanical, electrical, and electronic manufacturing are only a few of the industries that have thrived. Near proximity to European markets, a favorable logistics infrastructure, and an inexpensive and skilled labor force all help to boost exports.
  • Tunisia's growth is expected to increase as a result of new capital spending on transportation projects and a new investment law that went into effect in 2017 and is expected to boost investor interest and activity.
  • Hence, Tunisia’s expanding manufacturing sector has increased demand forprinting and industrial ink such as Videojet ink, Inkjet refills, and Hitachi parts.

  • Freight forwarder or Tunisian Customs documents are commonly used for this purpose. By submitting these documents to their commercial banks, importers may receive hard currency for payment. In previous transactions, US exporters used confirmed, irrevocable letters of credit and letters of credit approving "payment against records" to ensure payment.
