Authentication and brand protection are set to become a key additional selling point for RFID technology in the near future. If a single, multi-functional RFID tag can fulfil more of a customer's needs then tthey will be more likely to invest in an RFID solution. This report provides valuable information and insights into the major market, business and technology developments taking place. It is designed to help companies understand and exploit the current and potential market opportunities for RFID/NFC-based brand protection solutions.

Volume I provides an overview and analysis of the markets and business opportunities for RFID/NFC solutions in brand protection applications and includes:

·       An examination of the types of product-related crime and technology-based solutions (both RFID and non-RFID) used to combat counterfeiting and product piracy 

·       An in-depth market sizing and scaling analysis for RFID technology in brand protection applications with a breakdown by selected end-user market sector together with projected growth rates

·       End user sectors and product types causing the biggest financial losses from product related crime and those that look best suited to RFID technology in brand protection 

·      The share of gross spending on security technologies by end user sector

·       A detailed analysis of the international market for RFID in brand protection and authentication applications for 11 specific end-user market sectors

* Pharmaceuticals and health care products
* Apparel
* Alcoholic drink products
* Electronic equipment and components, batteries
* Automotive parts and components aftermarket
* Aerospace and defense aftermarket
* Tobacco products
* Beauty products
* Luxury products
* Imaging supplies
* Game software and hardware.


Volume II provides a comprehensive analysis of core RFID/NFC technologies.  This includes not only conventional chip-based RFID, current and next generation chip-less tags but also printed ‘organic’ RFID devices. The capabilities and price/performance characteristics of the various RFID devices and how they can best be applied in practice to thwart specific counterfeiting and other types of brand related threats are evaluated. Voume II also includes:

·      Forecasts about the nature and time-scale of likely future developments and their implications including the need for RFID in brand protection to be consumer activated

·      Profiles of key RFID technology suppliers

·      A review of the technologies that underpin the successful deployment of RFID-based brand protection solutions, including ways of protecting stored ID data in tags from cloning and other threats

·      An explanation of how proven processes for applying machine-readable, optical codes (e.g. precision ink-jet coding for item level marking of pharmaceuticals) can be applied to the new generation printed RFID devices  

·      Insights into the level of investment likely to be required in new incorporation processes and new data encoding and information management systems  

·      Answers to strategic questions, such as how best and when to prepare for the deployment of fully printed RFID devices

·      Practical advice for companies seeking to avoid the many pitfalls involved in selecting and implementing RFID brand protection, product authentication and e-pedigree solutions


Next step forward is moving from "track and trace" to "track, trace and authenticate."
