Product Offerings by Major Market Players

The better, advanced and diverse varieties of anti-counterfeiting packaging products and solutions with enhanced properties that are able to effectively prevent and control the chances and probability of the production of fake products. These products are being offered by existing and new players in different markets is estimated to lead to increased adoption and propel the market growth further over the forecast period.

Some of the examples of the product offerings are as follows:

In July 2019, Baker McKenzie announced that they have collaborated up with iTRACE Technologies, which is involved in the dealing with the provision of secure anti-counterfeit solutions and solutions for supply chain security for different brand owners. The purpose of this partnership agreement is to deliver a new solution for the clients that are looking in order to increase the security of their products. The product is called the “2DMI”, which is a technology that aids companies in facilitating the increase in the security and insight into the entire production process, irrespective of where the companies are based. The objective of iTRACE is to track the physical products back to the blockchain ledgers effectively.

In December 2019, TraceTag, one of the companies that are involved in dealing in the provision of announced the launch of a new marker concept in order to support the oil and lubricant security across the marketplace so as to address the challenges being experienced by industry players. The main objective is to support re-packaging of oil, including the oil that has been used, into the original packaging, to stop the use of the base oils and unapproved formulations for oils and the reduction in the use of the additives that are being used to meet the performance requirements.

The increasing popularity of RFID technology and the presence of the strict guidelines associated with the usage and the promotion of RFID technologies is expected to increase its adoption among different end-users due to the advancement of track and trace packaging solutions

RFID technology is estimated to hold a significant share over the forecast period, which is attributable to the fact the RFID technology, is able to provision of a lot of benefits. These include facilitating the visibility of assets effectively and able to facilitate the location of products that have been lost or misplaced, in order to increase the productivity of employees and also mitigate the risk theft and loss, which is being given utmost priority and importance across different industry verticals. In addition, there is a presence of guidelines called the GS1 guidelines for the use of EPC/RFID, in the light of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) by European Union (EU). The Electronic product Code-enabled RFID technology makes the use of radio frequency identification (RFID) for facilitating the automatic detection of products for consumers. RFID is used in every sector such as automobiles including the EZ Pass in the US and the Liber-t pass in France that are able to allow the faster passage of automobiles through the toll booths present on highways. The GS1 provides the guidelines on different issues such as Consumer Notice, which is going to provide clear notice to the presence of the EPC/RFID tags on the products on the packaging materials, Consumer Choice, which provides the consumers with an option to be able to discard and remove the EPC/RFID tags on the purchased products. Consumer Education, which provides an opportunity to easily obtain the information related to the genuineness of the product. Lastly, Record Use, Retention, and Security, which says that the tags do not contain, collect or store any information, which is easily and personally identifiable.
