Counterfeiting is a major problem across industries, with the pharmaceutical industry most at risk owing to the illegal and dangerous substances used in counterfeit drugs. Counterfeiting not only affects the brand value of a company but also reduces profitability by a significant margin. To prevent counterfeiting of sensitive products and retain the authenticity of products, packaging plays a prominent role. Anti-counterfeiting packaging measures are used to prevent imitation and ensure safety of goods, thereby reducing economic damage and risks to the consumers’ health. To curtail the use of counterfeit product, many companies encourage the adoption of anti-counterfeiting technologies which are classified as overt, covert, forensic, and sterilization. Some of the overt anti-counterfeiting features include the use of holograms, optically variable device, color shifting security inks and films, security graphics, and sequential product numbering.
