Global Trade in Fakes: A WORRYING THREAT

Publiceret 22-06-2021

Joint OECD and EUIPO study analyses the scale of the worldwide trade in counterfeit goods.

This study analyses the value, scope and magnitude of world trade in counterfeit and pirated products. It is an update of two previous studies on this subject, published in 2016 and 2019.

Based on data for 2019, it estimates that the volume of international trade in counterfeit and pirated products amounted to as much as USD 464 billion in that year, or 2.5% of world trade.

The study also show that in 2019, imports of counterfeit and pirated products into the EU amounted to as much as EUR 119 billion (USD 134 billion), which represents up to 5.8 % of EU imports. It should be noted that these results rely on customs seizure observations and do not include domestically produced and consumed counterfeit and pirated products; nor do they include pirated digital content on the Internet.
