Security Printing - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to procurement analysts at SpendEdge, one of the key category growth drivers for the security printing market is the rise in counterfeit of security documents. Counterfeiting of security documents, such as banknotes, coupons, and tax stamps, has increased immensely due to the rise in terrorism and criminal networks as they have fueled underground economy and finances. The increased circulation of counterfeit currency, in turn, poses a serious threat to the economy of countries, consumers, and financial institutions. Technological innovations, such as desktop graphics and LaserJet and inkjet printers, have made it easier for counterfeiters to forge documents. As a result, buyers have become conscious about protecting security documents to avoid counterfeiting

Brand piracy is another factor driving the growth of the security printing market. A growing number of buyers are implementing security features on their labels and product packaging to protect their brand names. Brand owners work in collaboration with suppliers (printing partners) to develop a multi-layered protection plan (by integrating multiple layers of security into the document such as encryption, tokenization, and EMV chip card technology), which enables them to protect their brand and avoid counterfeiting. Some of the sectors that are affected by brand piracy include pharmaceutical, electronics, semiconductor, and consumer packaged goods. Buyers in these industries are adopting measures such as micro text, guillochés, variable images, and illustrations. These measures are integrated with digital printing process to produce package designs that are difficult for counterfeiters to replicate, thus enabling buyers to protect their brand. Also, security printing suppliers are offering security substrates such as fluorescent fibers, watermarks, taggants, embedded holograms, and microprinting fiber. These substrates contain a high level of security measures to ensure brand protection.

Security Printing - Procurement Best Practices

One of the procurement best practices in the market is for buyers to engage only with suppliers that have security measures in place in terms of performing background checks on employees/staffs working at security printing suppliers’ premises. Suppliers also need to maintain safe operational procedures during the process of security printing, which allows access to only authorized staff for document handling to avoid misusing of information and forgery of documents. To ensure long-term engagement with buyers, suppliers must maintain a SOP within their operations and ensure that employees comply with such procedures to maintain the safety of information to be printed on documents.

Security Printing - Procurement Challenges

According to this procurement research, the increasing cost of security printing due to the volatility of raw material prices is one of the major procurement challenges for the buyers in this category. The cost of raw materials such as paper, plastic or biopolymers, security inks, security threads, micro metallic parts, and printed electronics depends greatly on the availability and accessibility of such materials to suppliers. Since the suppliers have no say over the raw material costs, they increase service pricing to maintain their ROI.
