This is what the OECD and EUIPO have determined: the share of counterfeit goods in world trade has risen from 2.5 to 3.3 percent in the period 2013 to 2016. In addition to luxury goods, pharmaceuticals, and electronics, everyday consumer goods - such as shoes, cosmetics, and toys are also affected.
This trend threatens brands that have invested millions in brand building. If counterfeits of inferior quality reach the consumer, brand reputation suffers almost immediately.
