Some of the factors affecting the market growth include rise in adoption of advanced track and trace solutions, favorable government intervention, and stringent regulations and criteria for the implementation of serialization. Pharmaceutical companies are expecting legislation on anti-counterfeiting & traceability of the drugs globally. Several governments across the countries opt for the execution of serialization regulations. There is a rise in the regulatory compliance for serialization which is becoming a focus area for pharmaceutical manufacturers and supply chain partners. Efforts are aimed at addressing drug counterfeits, difficulty in tracking returns or recalls, and improving supply chain visibility. For instance, according to a data published by Makro Care (a clinical and regulatory services organization), more than 40 countries and above 75% of global pharmaceutical drugs supply was covered by one or other serialization track and trace regulations in 2018.

On the contrary, high cost is required for implementing product identification setups (ground infrastructure). In developing countries such as China and India, government fails to provide ground infrastructure, such as satellite for real time tracking solutions for companies. This high cost setups is sometime not feasible for low cost products, which is anticipated to restrain the track and trace solutions market growth during the forecast period.

Depending on product type, the track and trace solutions market is segmented into hardware systems and software solutions. The hardware systems market is further categorized into printing & marking solutions, monitoring & verification solutions, labeling solutions, and others. The software solutions market is further classified into plant manager software, line controller software, bundle tracking software, and others. The software solutions segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR during the forecast period due to its mounting adoption in biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and medical device companies to continuously manage manufacturing facilities, product lines, case, and bundle tracking, and warehousing and shipping.

On the basis of technology, the track and trace solutions market is classified into barcode and radio-frequency identification (RFID). The RFID segment is anticipated to display considerable market outlook over the next few years owing to rise in application in the pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies and hospitals. These applications for inventory control, equipment tracking, personnel tracking, prevention of distribution of counterfeit drugs and medical devices, and out-of-bed (OOB) detection and fall detection.

On the basis of application, the track and trace solutions market is categorized into serialization solutions and aggregation solutions. The serialization solutions segment has been further divided into bottle serialization, label serialization, carton serialization, and data matrix serialization. 

The aggregation solutions segment is sub-segmented into bundle aggregation, case aggregation, and pallet aggregation. Aggregation enables healthcare companies and organizations to trace their products from the production process, according to the parent-child principle, which is nurturing the market growth of the aggregation solutions segment.

By end user, the global track and trace solutions market is classified into pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies, medical device companies, and others. The pharmaceutical & biotechnology companies segment witnessed the supremacy in 2019 and is expected to maintain its status quo over the study period. This is due to surge in number of counterfeit drugs, particularly in the developing countries along with the presence of stringent regulations for the pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.
