This data is based on the responses of over 33,000 individuals who are from households having a monthly income of at least US$ 661.26 (~ZAR 10,000). The increasing inclination toward such programs in South Africa drives the demand for the printing of loyalty cards.

In the financial year 2020, the count of issued debit cards in Japan reached ~456.45 million, denoting the addition of ~2 million cards to the count reported in the financial year 2019. Further, in China, the count of registered vehicle drivers reached ~400 million in 2020. In the last 10 years, the count of drivers in the country has almost doubled, which has triggered the production of driving licenses, thereby contributing to the security printing market proliferation in Asia. As of September 2020, there were more than 859 million active debit cards in India, while there were ~57 million credit cards in the country as of August 2020. Thus, the rising demand for plastic cards is fueling the security printing market growth in Asia and Africa.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Asia & Africa Security Printing Market

India, South Korea, and Vietnam are among the worst-hit countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic.India was further affected by the second wave of COVID-19, which witnessed a high count of fatalities.

The COVID-19 pandemic and various travel restrictions led to a sharp decline in the count of security applications that were verified by India in 2020.

However, the security printing market in Asia witnessed some demand due to elections in various countries.On April 15, 2020, legislative elections were held for 253 constituencies in South Korea.

On October 31, 2021, general elections were held in Japan as per the schedule.The requirement for ballot papers in these elections supported the security printing market growth in Asia to some extent.

However, with offices giving work from home to their newly hired employees, the requirement for plastic cards that are used as identity cards fell drastically in various Asian countries.As of April 2021, the Reserve Bank of India’s data showed that the issuance of new credit cards came virtually to a standstill and fell almost 47% on a year-on-year (Y-o-Y) basis and over 21% on a month-on-month basis.
