The Luxury Market: Protecting Value
Olnica provides invisible brand-protection solutions for the luxury industry that don’t interfere with the appearance or quality of luxury goods.
In the luxury industry, where the value of each item is high, products are both widely counterfeited or sold through unofficial channels. Fakes and gray market sales don’t just mean a significant loss of revenue for luxury brands – they pose a real threat to brand image. And now there’s a new challenge for the secondary luxury market: warranty fraud, or fakes being sold back to companies by unscrupulous customers.
In one day in 2020, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Miami seized 10,788 counterfeit Gucci and Coach handbags in a shipment from China. Had they been genuine they would have fetched almost $5m USD.
Despite some track & trace technologies being put in place, like holograms or RFID, they remain costly, highly visible, and don’t solve the problem of counterfeit.
