AQCMS and BUSINESS-INFORM recommend to Russian Buyers

High-Quality Consumables and Their Suppliers

The volumes of procurements of quality supplies grow in Russia. The fact is confirmed by the statistics of the Russian market 2015-2020. The Russian buyer is gradually recognizing all the advantages of quality consumables and more often chooses to buy products of higher quality (though for higher price).

The stated dynamics of quality products sales are supported by several Information Agency Business-Inform working vectors. For instance, in 2017 the Russian Association of Quality Consumables Manufacturers and Supplies (AQCMS) was formed (https://aqcmsrus.ru/?lang=en). In 2020 the Association consolidated the majority of the Russian market leaders, the suppliers of quality consumables. The active work of the Association allowed even in COVID-19 pandemic times to organize and hold more than 20 video-conferences with the largest buyers of printing devices and corresponding supplies. Press-releases of those video-conferences are published on AQCMS web-site (https://aqcmsrus.ru/novosti/?lang=en).

The Association and Information Agency Business-Inform organized and held the number of studies of the Russian market, as well as testing, the results of which have been presented to the largest Russian buyers of printing devices and consumables. Among other things the buyers were presented with ratings of 50 leading Russian suppliers of cartridges and toners as well as with the results of the testing of products supplied by those suppliers on the Russian market. The buyers were shown the evaluation of prints quality, cartridge toxicity, and possibility of quality cartridge remanufacturing. Special attention was paid towards -cartridges whose quality turned out to be lower than expected. As a result of collective discussions, the technical and environmental requirements were defined towards quality cartridges; supplier companies were chosen who are ready to supply quality cartridges for large Russian companies. In 2021 the research of the market and testing will be continued.

In conditions of pandemic the Information Agency Business-Inform has organized and is holding (until April 30, 2021) virtual exhibition BUSINESS-INFORM 2020 (http://sforp.ru/BI2020eng/). Any supplier of quality products has a chance to procure a virtual booth where it can publish company information, information on its products, awards, etc. All the information presented on these booths is in English and it is translated for free into Russian and distributed among Russian specialists (both among buyers and sellers). The exhibitors of the virtual expo have a possibility to order their products testing and if necessary its comparison with products of winners and nominees of the Russian 2020 contests, including OPEN QUALITY PRINTING CONTEST. Such activity of the virtual exhibition allows Russian specialists not only to present the new products  by their traditional international partners, but opens a way onto the Russian market for the new supplier companies of quality products.

It is also necessary to note the work of Information Agency Business-Inform and AQCMS in field of environmental protection. The testing for toxicity of cartridge cases done by the number of the Russian Academy of Science research institutions allowed to receive real, not advertising evaluation of sustainability of cartridges supplied on the Russian market. The list of brands thus acquired became the basis for procurement planning for many large Russian buyers. Moreover in 2021, it is planned to supply on the alternative Russian market 5.4 million cartridges with obligatory confirmation of their environmental sustainability and compliance with RoHS requirements.  In 2021 the work on environmental compliance and RoHS compliance will be continued. In the nearest future a meeting is planned for the representatives of Business-Inform Group and AQCMS Expert Council on Environmental Safety (https://aqcmsrus.ru/strukturan/3-1-4-ekspertnyj-sovet-po-problemam-ekolo/?lang=en) with the employees of Ministry of Law and Federal Custom Services on the issues of control of compliance of products imported into Russian with RoHS and Stockholm Convention on Persistent Pollutants requirements.

Thus, in Russia the cluster of quality consumables buyers is formed and grows ever more. It is expected that the support by the Russian state structures of the initiatives by Business-Inform Group and AQCMS will speed up the number of the buyer companies of quality supplies and the growth of their procurement volumes.
