Trends in Trade in Counterfeit and Pirated Goods

Publiceret 18-03-2019

This study presents an updated quantitative analysis of the value, scope and magnitude of world trade in counterfeit and pirated products.

EUIPO writes about the report:

The first such report was published in 2016 and was based on data for 2013, it has now been updated with more recent data for 2016.

The results show that the problem of fakes in world trade has become more serious — counterfeit goods are now estimated to account for as much as 3.3 % of world trade (compared to 2.5 % in the earlier study).

In the EU, 6.8 % of all imports from third countries are now estimated to be counterfeit and pirated goods, worth up to EUR 121 billion. This, compared to the estimate of 5 % of EU imports presented in the 2016 report, constitutes a sharp rise.

Here you will find the full report in English and summaries in Danish and English.
