THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF COUNTERFEITING:
The effects of counterfeiting manifest in many ways including:
• Loss of sales revenue and profit margin
• Over production costs
• Fraudulent product warranty claims
• Product liability claims
• Brand and product reputation damage
THE LIFECYCLE OF COUNTERFEITING
The destructive effects of counterfeiting follows a typical lifecycle over four stages:
1. Entry – counterfeiting is at a small scale as counterfeiters enter the market producing counterfeit goods in small scale. The small volume of counterfeit production is usually not detected and allows counterfeiters to achieve an entry point from which to scale up.
2. Growth – at this stage the counterfeit product is being produced on a larger scale and becomes more economical for counterfeiters to further scale their production. By now the sales volume of the genuine product begin to slow as counterfeit substitution begins to achieve scale and traction.
3. Critical – Growth of the counterfeit product expands rapidly to reach a critical scale where the volume of counterfeit products begins to significantly displace the genuine product resulting in declining sales volumes and a decline in profit and market share. By this stage the problem is in epidemic proportions and the counterfeiters have hijacked a large share of the genuine product’s market share.
4. Fatal – Now the counterfeiting problem becomes so large and entrenched that the genuine product is losing significant sales and profit such that it becomes unprofitable. The brand reputation has been damaged such that consumers no longer trust the product or company and the situation becomes untenable.
