Prevention of counterfeit products

Counterfeit packaging has become a major issue for most businesses globally, which not only results in loss for the company, but also destroys the brand image of the products. In the pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical producers are taking stringent measures to prevent medicines or drugs from being counterfeited.

Rising need for traceability systems

Product traceability systems are intended to keep a record of the product flow and to track products throughout the production process or logistics network. As the manufacturing and distribution process of any product is so complex, companies consider traceability systems as the best tool to solve all counterfeit-related challenges.

“Product traceability tools help companies make available fresh and reliable products to their consumers, thus reducing the chances of counterfeit products in the market. In many countries such as the US and the UK, consumers are willing to pay a higher amount for products containing traceability certificates and the point-of-origin on food products,” says Technavio’s lead analyst, Sharan Raj M.

Demand for anti-counterfeit packaging from emerging nations

Anti-counterfeit packaging is gaining importance and demand from emerging countries in APAC. The anti-counterfeit packaging market in APAC is forecast to grow remarkably during the forecast period, owing to rising demand for food products, dairy products, pharmaceutical products, household items.

Sharan Raj M, Technavio’s research analyst says, “The increased disposable income of the population in emerging nations and the rising e-commerce in developing countries are encouraging anti-counterfeit packaging. Also, increase in trade among developed countries and developing countries will contribute to the growth of the anti-counterfeit packaging market.”
