Market Analysis

The demand for security paper is expected to grow rapidly in the forecast period of 2020-2025. A growing number of frauds is one of the important factors contributing to the expansion of the security paper market. To resolve fraud, the government, as well as other organisations, including banks and passenger agencies, protect their paper document so that the security paper market is influenced positively. The rise in affordable international tours, which has resulted in the increased demand for visas and passports, is also one of the major factors contributing to the growth of the security paper market. The increasing awareness of fraud among consumer groups and the increasing need for counterfeit protection is affecting the security paper market positively.

Hybrid paper is the leading type of security paper in the market, whereas the application sector is being dominated by the banknotes segment. The market share of safety papers is growing because of the increased use of safety papers by customers as they provide various safety features. Hybrid sheets, for example, have multiple security features like watermarks, threads, UV fibres or UV printing. Such high security features are used to limit falsifying practices that have resulted in the higher demand for security paper worldwide.

The major drivers of the security paper market growth have been technological developments like hybrid paper. Key players are working to develop highly secured innovations and are concentrating on using them in their product portfolio. Nevertheless, the growing digitisation and advancement of blockchain technology are expected to impact the security paper market negatively, given the increased security and convenience of digital and online payment options.
