Trade in Counterfeit Goods Market Set to Reach €1.67 Trillion in 2030 – Corsearch

Share

Corsearch, leading provider of brand protection and trademark solutions, has today shared research predicting that the size of the global trade in counterfeit goods could reach €1.67 trillion by 2030, a 75% increase from that of 2023 and a growth 3.6 times higher than predicted for the global economy over the same period.1

Corsearch calculations estimate that counterfeits accounted for 3.3% of global trade in 2023, and will grow to 5% by 2030 - meaning €1 in every €20 spent globally on products could be spent on counterfeit goods.

The total displaced economic activity from counterfeiting in 2022 – namely the cost to brands and manufacturers – totalled €1.02 trillion, resulting in a loss of €162 billion to worldwide sales tax revenue, impacting up to 5.4m jobs.2

In addition to the negative global economic impact of counterfeiting, fake products have a damaging effect on the reputation of brands, reducing customer trust and risking consumer safety.

Corsearch has recognised the need for advanced innovations and solutions in brand protection to meet this challenge, and has today launched its latest technology platform, Corsearch Zeal. The platform uses AI to secure removal of fakes and counterfeit goods from the Internet whilst enabling Corsearch’s team of experts to focus on the most severe issues for brands and consumers and to find the source of the illicit activity.

Using the Corsearch Zeal platform, brands can go further to identify the source of the problem, reducing the losses and harm from counterfeit trade and protecting consumers.

Simon Baggs, President of Brand & Content Protection, Corsearch, commented:

"The rapid expansion of the counterfeiting industry could take up to 5% of the global goods economy by 2030 - posing a significant threat to brands. Urgent measures need to be taken, which is why we are today launching our new Corsearch Zeal platform. Technology enables vast swathes of data to be collated – enabling brands to collaborate to stop online sales whilst also targeting the source of the problem. Without this effort, we estimate that one in twenty euros will be spent on counterfeit goods by 2030, a worrying figure for brands already grappling with the problem in 2024.

“Corsearch Zeal shows our continued dedication to innovation and delivering unrivalled brand protection in the face of this escalating challenge. With Corsearch Zeal and our team of experts, we want to provide the most advanced solutions, enabling brands to work together to protect their consumers.”

In 2023, Ukraine was engulfed in war, while a new clash erupted between Israel and Hamas in the European sphere of influence. The Gallup Global Emotions 2024 report reveals the emotional toll of these conflicts. The report offers a snapshot of Gallup’s latest measurements of people’s positive and negative daily experiences. The findings are based on nearly 146,000 interviews with adults in 142 countries and areas in 2023. While global negative emotions dipped for the first time in a decade and positive emotions rebounded to their pre-pandemic highs, many of the world’s conflict zones remained bleak.

Merck Provides Update on Phase III TrilynX Study in Locally Advanced Head and Neck Cancer24.6.2024 22:35:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, today announced the discontinuation of the Phase III randomized TrilynX study evaluating xevinapant plus chemoradiotherapy (CRT) in patients with unresected locally advanced squamous cell carcinoma of the head and neck (LA SCCHN). The decision follows a pre-planned interim analysis performed by the study’s Independent Data Monitoring Committee, which found that the trial would be unlikely to meet its primary objective of prolonging event-free survival. Top-line safety data were overall compatible with the chemo-radio sensitizing properties of xevinapant. The company will conduct an in-depth review of the data and will share the results in a peer-reviewed forum. LA SCCHN has proven to be a difficult-to-treat form of cancer. CRT has remained the standard of care for decades, despite multiple studies designed to improve outcomes with new treatment approaches, including multiple immunotherapy trials. “We sincerely thank the patients, caregiv
