Banknote is a promissory note which is issued by banks that is payable on demand to the bearer. The production and distribution of new banknotes and destruction of the unfit banknotes is the responsibility of the central bank of the respective countries. The demand for banknotes and substrate is fulfilled by state print works (SPW), state paper mills (SPM) and handful number of commercial print and paper manufacturers. SPWs and SPMs can also turn in to commercial providers to cater the unmet demand for banknotes.


As per the global banknote market, the demand for banknotes will continue to grow globally with varied demand growth across different countries as per their economic conditions.

Hence, with latest banknote technology there lies a bright future for cash.
