The UHF RFID (RAIN) market in North America is expected to grow from US$ 838.34 million in 2019 to US$ 2,435.55 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 14.4% from 2020 to 2027. Growing complexities in supply chains due to outsourcing, internationalization, and e-retailing are leading to the mitigation of control over various activities, which has led to vulnerabilities in these supply chains. Counterfeiting is a widespread issue that impacts various businesses. At present, the issue is limited to luxury products and goods such as beauty products and apparel. Furthermore, sports giants such as Reebok and Adidas are taking on the ever-growing number of counterfeits. They filed the trademark suit in federal court against ~50 online sellers for selling, promoting, and providing for sale and distributing quantities of footwear. This lawsuit comes during the attention to the rising counterfeit-centric posts on Facebook platforms, which also comprise sponsored content that sellers pay Instagram to post. Thus, Reebok and Adidas are seeking US$ 2 million from each of the defendants for every counterfeit trademark used. The cases of counterfeits are gradually decreasing with the introduction of UHF RFID technology, as it makes copying or faking the trademark difficult and delivers a multi-layered defense against attacks on supply chain. With this technology, one can identify an individual item, determine its location, and review its chain of custody. Gathering this data makes it easier to handle the supply chain and identify counterfeits. Additionally, rising usage of RFID technologies in retail sector is a major factor driving the North America UHF RFID (RAIN) market.
