How to combat auto counterfeiting in India? Reasons for increase in automotive counterfeiting Factors such as: Illegal Manufacturing is growing due to shortcoming of existing legislation and easy availability of material from China to produce counterfeit auto component Inadequate surveillance efforts by brand owner to identify counterfeit products Tampering/Re-packaging: Counterfeit automotive components entering supply chain through local manufacturing, importing from China in form of fake packaging or in original packaging sourced from mechanics or service stations Higher margins: In comparison to genuine auto component makers, a counterfeiter earns 35%-75% Lack of consumer education to identify authentic parts/about the ill effects of counterfeit parts Supply constraints: Lack of easy availability of genuine parts for older variants of vehicles, and sometimes even for new models, leads to counterfeit sales. This may either be a supply constraint at the manufacturer’s end or a strategy at the distributor level to achieve high margins. Lack of tools for law enforcement © 2014 HOMAI www.homai.org
