In the U.S., boost in the manufacturing sector owing to stable macroeconomic outlook and decrease in the cost of managing the supply chain owing to vertical integration by leading players are also fueling the growth of the U.S. coding and marking systems market. For example, Dover corporation achieved more than 3.0% growth in printing and identification platform during the fourth quarter of 2017. Additionally, the growing intervention of government agencies such as FDA to put detailed product and manufacturer information on primary and secondary packages of food and beverage and drugs is pushing the growth of the market in the country.

Growing focus on product traceability and anti-counterfeiting is expected to provide growth opportunities in the market

Coding and marking technology has a potential to provide a new level of visibility and tracking to the supply chain. It enables manufacturers to audit and enforce anti-counterfeit and diversion activities throughout the supply chain. For example, smart coding includes a permanent batch code on the product, where it takes a basic batch code further by altering specific characters in the code, making it difficult to be imitated by unauthorized parties. Increasing awareness among manufacturers regarding counterfeiting is creating immense opportunities for the industry players operating in the U.S. coding and marking systems market.
