ANTI- COUNTERFEITING AND BRAND PROTECTION SUMMIT 2018

The Indian counterfeit market is growing at the rate of 44% per annum as per reports. In India, approximately 3 billion pieces of counterfeit and pirated products were seized in 2013. Of these, 2.3 billion pieces were illicit pharmaceutical products, 470 million pieces were electronic appliances and 50 million pieces were foodstuff. There is annual loss of US $ 2 billion because of counterfeited auto components alone. Counterfeiting is a global problem and is growing at an alarming rate and India is a large market for such activities. India's booming e-commerce environment has added further complexities. Counterfeiting not only affects the sales and revenue of the industry but also dents the reputation of brands and results in heavy revenue losses due to unaccounted sales and a huge challenge to the 'Make in India' program.
