Not much I could add to that, everything written here is absolutely true. The market in fakes is growing year by year, but that is being fulled by an overwhelming demand for cheap brand name products.
Asia still leads the way in the fake trade, mainly China, but other countries are doing their best to catch up sadly.
It's only going to keep increasing as long as growing numbers wanting the impossible keep turning towards countries like China to find it. Everytime someone decides to sell black market products, it has the effect of tightening up legitimate sourcing avenues as the suppliers lock down their supply avenues to protect their brands.
If people stopped selling fake items tomorrow, the trade in fakes would be dead inside a week and legitimate brand name sourcing avenues would actually open to cater for the market, but that's all too simple lol
