RFID is the most Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) in Pharmaceuticals - Executive Summary
promising solution GBI Research's report on the markets for RFID in the pharmaceutical industry provides a available to prevent comprehensive analysis on the applications of RFID technology in the pharmaceutical supply counterfeiting chain. The market for RFID hardware, software and services is forecast for seven years and the key factors driving or restraining the market are analyzed. Analysis on regulations and mandates provides valuable insights into the key trends that drive the growth of RFID in the pharmaceutical industry. Pharmaceutical Industry's Pressing Need to Regain Lost Reputation and Revenues Due to
Counterfeit Drugs Will Drive the Growth of RFID Market

GBI Research finds that there is a growing need for the pharmaceutical industry to secure their distribution channels from counterfeit drugs. RFID solutions provide the ideal identification method by which pharmaceutical industry can counter fake drug issues. While pharmaceutical companies, distributors and wholesalers are on a continuous look out for these fake drugs, counterfeiters find innovative ways to introduce fake drugs into legitimate supply chains. The use of RFID solutions can avoid the loss of investor confidence and a consequent decline in share prices due to such counterfeiting incidents. Also, increased supply chain security and operational efficiency will help the pharmaceutical industry improve their reputation in the delivery of safe drugs. Hence, increasing concerns over the safety of supply chains and the health of patients have forced companies to think big and adopt RFID solutions. A steady increase in the adoption of RFID hardware, software and services in the pharmaceutical industry is expected to drive the growth of these solutions.

Markets for Counterfeit Drugs
Counterfeit drugs are one of the key challenges facing pharmaceutical supply chains and the safety In developing countries of patients. It is estimated that the global market for counterfeit drugs was $XX billion in 2006 and is counterfeit drugs are expected to grow to $XX billion by 2010. estimated to account for Counterfeit drugs are those drugs which are sold under a product name without authorization and approximately XX% of the which are sold with the intention of misleading the customer into believing that the drug is original. total pharmaceutical Counterfeiting is one of the major problems facing healthcare systems across the world. It is more prevalent in developing countries where there is limited control over the flow of drugs through the Counterfeiters find weak links in the supply chain to introduce fake drugs and so counterfeiting market thrives in developed countries where the movement of goods in the supply chain is not strictly regulated. In the developing countries of Africa, Asia and Latin America, counterfeit drugs constitute nearly XX% of the total pharmaceutical market.

Source: GBI Research A lack of awareness about RFID technology and the lack of a proof-of-concept for returns on investments have hampered the growth of the market for RFID in pharmaceuticals. Although RFID technology has been implemented in industries such as the automotive industry, its implementation rate in the pharmaceutical industry has been slow. The pharmaceutical industry is reluctant to make large investments in RFID implementation as it is unsure about the efficiency of the technology in real-time functions. One of the key concerns raised is the lack of standardization across the supply chain that could lead to the inefficient functioning of RFID systems. Although RFID technology is being deployed in closed-loop systems, where tags can be reused, deployment in open loop systems will require an increase in awareness and proof-of-concept studies. The effectiveness and reliability of RFID systems in open-loop systems need to be demonstrated to encourage industry participants to adopt RFID technology. y Identification (RFID) in Pharmaceuticals - GBIHC013MR /Published FEB 2010 Supply Chain Security Concerns Provide Impetus for RFID GBI Research.

Regulatory Landscape
9.1
Regulations in the US Encourage RFID Adoption in the
Pharmaceutical Industry
The Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987 (PDMA)
The Prescription Drug Marketing Act of 1987 (PDMA), as modified by the Prescription Drug Amendments of 1992, amended sections 301, 303, 503, and 801 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act) to establish the requirements related to the wholesale distribution of prescription drugs. One of the primary purposes of the PDMA was to increase safeguards to prevent the introduction and retail sale of substandard, ineffective, and counterfeit drugs in the US drug supply chain. California Pedigree Legislation's Deadline has been Postponed on Multiple
Occasions Due to the Challenges Faced in RFID Implementation

According to the California pedigree legislation, a "Pedigree" means a record, in electronic form, containing the information regarding each transaction resulting in a change of ownership of a given dangerous drug, from the sale by a manufacturer, through to the acquisition and sale by one or more wholesaler, manufacturer or pharmacy, until the final sale to a pharmacy or other person furnishing, administering, or dispensing the dangerous drug. y Identification (RFID) in Pharmaceuticals - GBIHC013MR /Published FEB 2010 Supply Chain Security Concerns Provide Impetus for RFID GBI Research.
