Counterfeit problems in the Pharmaceutical Industry

Many companies struggle with brand protection especially in the pharmaceutical industry and according to the World Health Organization, 1% of pharmaceutical in the developed world are counterfeit. That figure increases to 10% in various developing countries and in parts of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. United States healthcare experts estimate that more than half of American hospitals have purchased “grey market” pharmaceutical products. Customs officials at the European Union (EU) estimate that 5%-10% of all products seized at boarders are counterfeit pharmaceutical products and unfortunately, counterfeit drugs make up total 30% of the pharmaceutical market.
