A counterfeit medication or a counterfeit drug is a medication or pharmaceutical product which is produced and sold with the intent to deceptively represent its origin, authenticity or effectiveness. A counterfeit drug may contain inappropriate quantities of active ingredients, or none, may be improperly processed within the body (e.g., absorption by the body), may contain ingredients that are not on the label (which may or may not be harmful), or may be supplied with inaccurate or fake packaging and labeling. Medicines which are deliberately mislabeled to deceive consumers—including mislabeled but otherwise genuine generic drugs—are counterfeit. Counterfeit drugs are related to pharma fraud. Drug manufacturers and distributors are increasingly investing in countermeasures, such as traceability and authentication technologies, to try to minimise the impact of counterfeit drugs.

2. Counterfeit Electronics - $169 Billion

Counterfeit electronic components are electronic parts that are misrepresented as to their origins or quality. Counterfeiting of electronic components can be an infringement of the legitimate producer's trademark rights. Since counterfeit parts often have inferior specifications and quality, they may represent a hazard if incorporated into critical systems such as aircraft navigation, life support, military equipment, or space vehicles.
The marketing of electronic components has been commoditized, making it easier for the counterfeiter to introduce substandard and counterfeit devices into the supply chain.

3. Counterfeit Foods - $49 Billion

4. Counterfeit Auto Parts - $45 Billion

5. Counterfeit Toys - $34 Billion

6. Counterfeit Shoes - $12 Billion

12 Anti-counterfeiting technologies that can be used with packaging
Anti-counterfeiting packaging can be engineered to help reduce the risks of package pilferage or the theft and resale of products: Some package constructions are more resistant to pilferage and some have pilfer indicating seals. Counterfeit consumer goods, unauthorized sales (diversion), material substitution and tampering can all be reduced with these anti-counterfeiting technologies. Packages may include authentication seals and use security printing to help indicate that the package and contents are not counterfeit. Packages also can include anti-theft devices, such as dye-packs, RFID tags, or electronic article surveillance[59] tags that can be activated or detected by devices at exit points and require specialized tools to deactivate. 

1. Taggant fingerprinting - uniquely coded microscopic materials that are verified from a database
2. Encrypted micro-particles - unpredictably placed markings (numbers, layers and colors) not visible to the human eye
3. Holograms - graphics printed on seals, patches, foils or labels and used at point of sale for visual verification
4. Micro-printing - second line authentication often used on currencies
5. Serialized barcodes
6. UV printing - marks only visible under UV light
7. Track and trace systems - use codes to link products to database tracking system
8. Water indicators - become visible when contacted with water
9. DNA tracking - genes embedded onto labels that can be traced
10. Color shifting ink or film - visible marks that switch colors or texture when tilted
11. Tamper evident seals and tapes - destructible or graphically verifiable at point of sale
