Counterfeit Products, Trade Protectionism Threaten Market Growth

Though market growth is projected to be strong through 2022, several factors are conspiring to challenge the industry’s health. Chief among those is the presence of counterfeit products, which mimic little-known brands and are difficult to distinguish from genuine products. Further, a global increase in trade protectionism is resulting in the imposition of restrictions on free trade and a possible decrease in exports of up to 15% by 2022.
