Counterfeit Drug Detection Devices to Witness Surge in Covid-19 Crisis, as Fake Medicine Sales Jump in Developing Economies, Says Future Market Insights

Prominent counterfeit drug detection device manufacturers are investing in boosting the market presence in previously untapped markets, with new technologies, aided by favorable government initiatives. Key reason supporting this growth is the increased use of counterfeit drug detection device from all across the world. Counterfeit drug detection device is gaining traction owing to its ability to offer superior quality services.

The counterfeit drug detection device market will expand moderately at 4% CAGR, between 2019 and 2029. The coronavirus pandemic has resulted in a substantial increase in the sales and distribution of fake drugs, particularly in developing economies such as those in Asia and Africa. Drug stockpiling behavior by consumers is building on this issue, increasing the demand for counterfeit drug detection devices for the short term.

“In recent years, many governments have been cracking down on the trade of counterfeit drugs with stringent laws. In addition, pharmaceutical companies are investing in better surveillance, which will contribute substantially to the counterfeit drug detection device market. These factors are key to growth during and after the covid-19 crisis,” says the FMI analyst.
