Product makers frequently run separately operated online retail stores these days. Customers can access information on product debuts, features, samples, prices, and other pertinent product details through these stores. The wide selection of goods and affordable prices provided by e-commerce websites, which encouraged more customers to choose online buying, are responsible for the boom in online shopping. The growth of e-commerce and international trade has made counterfeit goods a serious issue for firms. Solutions for brand protection and authentication aid businesses in thwarting counterfeiting and preserving their reputations. Additionally, for supply chain traceability, several cutting-edge technologies are deployed, including blockchain. Blockchain works like a database, storing data in a digital ledger of distinct blocks that are added to as new transactions are made. With the help of traceability technology, users can access the complete supply chain's detailed data, which provides insightful information that can be put to use. Users can scan product photos and upload them to a company's website to verify the product's authenticity via remote authentication. Therefore, these factors contribute to the market's growth. As a result, the demand for authentication and brand protection solutions is expanding as more businesses invest in systems that can monitor and remove counterfeit products posted on online marketplaces.

However, conventional authentication methods like RFID, barcodes, and holograms have inherent flaws that counterfeiters can exploit. For instance, 2D codes, such as QR codes, are simple to copy. When a QR code is simply copied, its functionality is duplicated, making it challenging for readers to distinguish between the original and copied codes. Holograms include detailed details, complex structures, and difficult-to-replicate reflecting properties. Smaller companies could find it difficult to defend expenditure, particularly if a quick or certain return on investment (ROI) is not promised. All of these factors could slow the market's expansion.

Offering Outlook

Authentication and brand protection are essential in pharmaceutical applications because fake pharmaceutical items endanger patients' health and damage the reputation of pharmaceutical companies.
