Security Packaging: 2021 report shows demand for secure packaging

Testing, consultancy and compliance provider, Smithers, recently published a report entitled The Future of Anti-Counterfeiting, Brand Protection and Security Packaging to 2026. According to its findings, brand protection, track and trace and other anti-counterfeiting technologies in packaging are increasing in use as global economies wrestle with the fallout from COVID-19.

Security Packaging: What does it protect?

Security packaging has become one of the safest and most effective forms of protecting goods and supplies in transit. The options are vast and incorporate a wide range of products,including security bags and pouches, security envelopes, as well as security labels and tape.

Security envelopes are available for various applications that include cash deposits and cash-in-transit, confidential and sensitive documents, police and forensic evidence and as a duty-free shopping bag. Larger Security Bag options are ideal for transporting or storing large volumes of documents, or other bulkier items in a tamper evident manner.

Once the contents are put into the bag, it is sealed using a tamper evident security seal. If the seal is broken when the bag reaches its destination, the recipient can see that the security has been compromised and begin an audit throughout the supply chain.

Unlike common packing tape, tamper-evident security labels or tape cannot be removed or reapplied without leaving evidence, such as a ‘void’ or ‘opened’ message. However, not every tape with a void message is necessarily tamper-proof. A truly tamper-evident tape will always show evidence that the package has been tampered with.
