    A security seal is an evidence to indicate whether any tampering or security breach to the product inside the shipping containers, truck trailers, chemical drums, airline duty-free trolleys, and utility meters. It is a mechanical device used to seal or lock items that eliminate the need for an expensive or complicated key control program. Their main purpose is to indicate tampering or unauthorized access to a sealed item, prevent opportunistic theft, stowage of arms and explosives, trafficking of contraband, and to prevent contamination; and visualize manipulation attempt

    Security seals are mostly designed for one-time use; however, few of them are reusable electronics seals, whose demand is escalating at a handsome rate. There are different types of security seals with each having unique properties and used for different applications. These seals can be classified on the basis of their level of security provided to the substrate as high-security seals, security seals, and indictive seals. High-security seals, such as bolt seals; provide the highest level of security which also meet or exceed the ISO 17712 high-security standards. The cable security seals are available with unique printed serial numbers for identification purposes and with many customization options, such as different colors, printing options, and markings. Security seals allow for an easy and reliable security solution for all types of industries.

    There are majorly two regulating standards for security seals, International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT) to avoid cloning security seals using the 3D printing technology. People may not have acknowledged the significance of security seals outside the transportation industry, but security seals are widely used across various sectors i.e., in entertainment, healthcare, food & beverage, law enforcement, manufacturing, petrochemical, postal & courier, retail, and utilities, etc. for numerous applications, such as to seal the utility meters, atm cassettes, gaming chips, tanker valves, clinical waste, fire doors, fire extinguishers, and forensic evidence.

    Regardless of lockdowns in several major economies of the world that restricted the movement of vehicles and people, cargo theft has been on the rise since the pandemic broke out. These cargo thefts have not been limited to a particular region; it’s a widespread concern and is scattered across the supply chain from 1PL (party logistics) to 4PL globally. According to TAPA’s Incident Information Service (IIS) database, over €85 million worth of products were stolen from air, road, sea, and rail freight routes in a total of 3,278 cargo theft cases across 46 countries of EMEA during the first half of 2020. The security seals market, which is moving parallelly with the industry’s rebound, is experiencing a gradual rejuvenation in demand from 2021 onwards, translating the security seals’ sales to reach US$ 0.86 Billion in 2026.
