Counterfeiting of confidential documents and government records has risen invariably during past years. The increasing financial burden on governments arising from mass counterfeiting is fueling the demand for anti-counterfeit technologies. The multilayer security methodologies, such as security inks and holograms, exhibits a substantial market share in the authentication technologies market. The growing adoption of tracing technologies such as, RFID and Barcode in product tracking and inventory management, would gain significance over the forecast period. The market for emerging tracing technologies, namely Bubble Tag, could face limitations in adoption due to the lower return on investment and operational complexities. Lack of awareness for authentication solutions among local manufacturers and the high cost of technologies would limit the market growth. However, active initiatives from the anti-counterfeit trade associations and government authorities across the world would eventually result in an increased level of awareness for anti-counterfeit technologies. Furthermore, a considerable increase in investments, by manufacturers would expedite the market growth during the forecast period.

Key finding of the study:

-Ink and holograms collectively hold about 93% of the market share in 2014 and is expected to grow at moderate pace

-North America will continue to lead the global market, closely followed by Europe, all through to the forecast period

-Asia-pacific is projected to be the fastest growing region with an estimated CAGR of 10.5% from 2015 to 2020


North America and Europe constitute the two largest regions for security documents and event ticketing anti-counterfeit packaging market and collectively accounted for about 84% of the revenue in 2014.
