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