Global Track and Trace Solutions Market

The global Track and Trace Solutions market was valued at USD 2,217.8 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 6,287.9 million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 14.07% from 2020 to 2027.

This growth is majorly attributed due to the rising rate of healthcare product counterfeiting and theft worldwide. Pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, medical devices, and cosmetic product manufacturers are adopting track and trace systems to protect their product and brand equity. Moreover, favorable regulations for serialization implementation is expected to drive the application of trace and trace solutions in healthcare industry. Product counterfeiting and theft is a key problem faced by pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, and cosmetic companies.

The healthcare industry is struggling to ensure the reliability of its products as the counterfeiting and product theft is on rise. According to statistics, about 60 different Pfizer products were being counterfeited worldwide until 2014. The problem of counterfeiting and product theft has been growing worldwide, primarily in developing countries such as China, South Africa, and India.

International Trade Administration estimated that the global counterfeit drug market size ranges from USD 75 million to USD 200 million and accounted for around 50% of all medicines sold in some Asian and African countries. Furthermore, it is estimated that the U.S. Barcode Technology companies faces around 10% to 15% loss in their annual revenue because of counterfeit products in China market.

Counterfeits and theft of the products have led to several problems to manufacturers such as lowering of brand value, high price of product, packaging-related product recalls, and decreased revenue generation.

Counterfeit drugs and theft are a hazardous source of financial harm and unfair competition for both generic and innovative industries. Existing government regulations and law enforcement are often lacking to tackle counterfeiting problems.

Thus, the manufacturers are adopting track and trace solutions in their business model to control and avoid counterfeiting and stealing of their products. For example, Eli Lilly invested around USD 110 million in serialization of every drug package that it markets around globally. Preventing counterfeiting and theft to save brand value in the market have become a key business focus. Thus, increasing focus of Barcode Technologies and medical devices manufactures on brand protection expected to drive the market.

Market Restraints:

High cost associated with the implementation of serialization

Implementation of serialization and aggregation is tedious process. Manufacturers need to analyze shop floor systems, packaging lines, and related engineering investments, along with larger supply chain system like warehouse edge systems.

Serialization products should properly incorporate with manufacturing lines to facilitate overall production and packaging with an ongoing focus on necessities of the evolving serialization regulatory requirements. Track and trace hardware systems & software solutions are expensive, as well as the other related elements such as system maintenance, software licensing, and support and project implementation increases the total project cost.

The engineering and implementation are key cost drivers in serialization projects. Thus, high cost related with implementation of serialization in supply chain could hinder the adoption of track and trace solutions.
