SCOPE OF REPORT
This study is about applications of anti-counterfeiting packaging technologies in the global pharmaceutical and food industries. It particularly focuses on authentication and track and trace packaging technologies. This report covers the role of U.S. and foreign manufacturers and regulatory agencies in the market for anti-counterfeiting technologies. Practically all drug and food products go through multiple distribution channels from the original manufacturers until they reach the final consumers. Consequently, the supply chain is integral to the application of anti-counterfeiting packaging technologies. Recognizing that it is impossible to capture the diversity of the global drug and food supply chains in detail, the report uses the U.S. drug and food marketing systems to illustrate the roles of key players (e.g., manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers) in the supply chain. Additionally, this report recognizes and highlights the growing role of the Internet in the global supply chain.
Market projections of global sales of authentication and track and trace packaging technologies to the drug and food industries are developed through 2020. Excluded are the usage and sales of these technologies in other consumer packaged goods sectors. Investment in research and development are important to the ongoing innovations in packaging technologies. This report compiles recent patents awarded for innovations in the categories of technologies included in this report. Profiles of major manufacturers and suppliers of authentication and track and trace packaging technologies are included.
