Protecting goods and products from being tampered with, copied, and duplicated at lower quality is known as anti-counterfeiting. Counterfeiting is known as the illegal production and marketing of goods, including their bearing and packaging, without the owner’s permission. Many anti-counterfeiting packaging systems have been adopted to keep the items from being copied and to give consumers authentic, original products.

Numerous technologies, including barcodes, holograms, and RFIDs, have found use in anti-counterfeiting measures. The market for anti-counterfeiting packaging is anticipated to increase due to escalating governmental restrictions and rising customer desire for unique products.

Market Dynamic


Adding brand protection technology to the product’s packaging and labeling prevents losses resulting from tampering and diversion. The packaging, labeling, guarantees, certificates of warranty, and ownership documents are also fake, giving the object the appearance of being a legitimate item.

Barcodes, RFIDs, and holograms are a few authentication and brand protection technologies incorporated into the label and packaging’s original design. During the projection period, it is predicted that the market will grow rapidly due to the use of these anti-counterfeit technologies to offer an efficient solution.


Governmental regularisation has forced most businesses to adopt various anti-counterfeiting techniques because counterfeiting is primarily motivated by the desire for inexpensive goods, stoking the market demand for counterfeit goods.

Due to the expensive expense of producing new packaging technologies, many firms now engage in traditional counterfeiting practices. Additionally, investors frequently oppose the development of new technologies because they could result in a bigger loss for the business. These are a few of the main things preventing the market from expanding.


In growing nations, key industrial industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage manufacturing, apparel and clothing manufacturing, and agriculture, are all experiencing rapid growth. This presents a great opportunity for packaging companies to expand their businesses.

Additionally, the covid pandemic saw a significant increase in the sales of pharmaceuticals and personal care items in these countries, which is anticipated to further fuel the demand for anti-counterfeit packaging in the coming years.

Segment-Wise Analysis

Why are holograms projected to ensure the most revenue during the forecast period?

A hologram is a laser light recording technique that enables recording a two- or three-dimensional image as a micro-relief diffraction pattern on a flat surface. In addition to blister packaging aluminum foil, holographic shrink sleeves, polyester-based tamper-evident labels, holographic induction cap seals, and holographic hot stamping foil, holograms are widely accessible in a variety of forms.

The market will rise during the forecast period due to using holograms in packaging to create anti-counterfeiting measures.

Why is the food & beverages segment expected to expand the fastest during the forecast period?

The food and beverage category is anticipated to grow favorably during the anticipated period. The main causes of the growth in demand for packaged food, which makes it vulnerable to counterfeiting, are changing lifestyles and expanding economies.

This causes the dissemination of falsely labeled, potentially dangerous food products to people. Food safety and product expiration are protected by various anti-counterfeiting technologies, including barcodes, labeling, and RFIDs. Therefore, it is anticipated that the segment will increase rapidly during the projection period due to high packaged food demand.
