A new report by Allied Market Research, titled, “World Anti-Counterfeit Electronics and Automobiles Packaging – Market Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 -2020 “, forecasts the global anti-counterfeit electronics and automobiles packagingmarket to grow at a CAGR of 10.1% from 2015 to 2020. Hologram technology would dominate the authentication packaging technology market and is expected to reach $8.0 billion in 2020. Taggants technology segment is projected to register the highest CAGR of 21.4% during 2015 – 2020.
Be it fake memory chips or refurbished automotive components sold as new, every year counterfeit electronic goods and automobile accessories surge the market in large numbers. Businesses and consumer within automotive and semiconductor industry are respectively losing about $3 billion and $75 billion annually. The high value of counterfeiting has spiked the demand of anti-counterfeit technologies within these industries. Additionally, factors such as advanced tracking technologies and adoption of RFID technology is also contributing to the growth of this market. Moreover, the increasing consumers awareness about counterfeit products and rising government efforts to counter electronic and automotive counterfeiting in developed as well as developing nations is supplementing the market growth. However, high cost associated with implementation of product identification setups and impact of anti-counterfeit products on distribution process would limit the market growth.
Conventional authentication technologies such as holograms, inks and dyes are the highest revenue generator in the global anti-counterfeit electronics and automobiles packaging market owing to their economic pricing and ease of application. Track and trace technologies are gaining popularity as potential solution for product tracking and authentication. Barcode is one of the leading technology in track and trace solution and is widely used across electronics industry.
Key findings of the study:
- Inks & dyes and holograms collectively accounted for about 91.2% of the revenue generated in 2014
- RFID technology market segment would grow with highest rate during the forecast period, owing to its accuracy and multiple applications
- North America will continue to lead the global anti-counterfeit packaging (electronics and automobiles) market, closely followed by Europe, all through to the forecast period
