Australian Printer Ink company’s have led the way in regards to generic printer cartridges and toner for the past 13 years. During the recent pandemic printer consumable companies throughout Australia have been overloaded with business as people leave work and begin setting up home offices.
If you combine this with a large number of children now being home schooled and doing extra printing then it is easy to see why the demand has lifted for printer ink cartridges. The only downside to this has been the slowdown in obtaining products from our Chinese manufacturers as many of their factories have been in lockdown or running on skeleton staff.
Even when many of the Chinese factories went back to work the backlogs and the freight delays have made it very difficult for us here in Australia to keep up stock levels and many products are now unavailable until further shipments arrive.
