This chart shows the share of detensions from online sales and their corresponding value of seisures in the European Union over the period 2017-2019, based on the results of the OECD/EUIPO report "Misuse of E-Commerce for Trade in Counterfeits," published in October 2021. The results show that while the detentions related to online sales constitute majority of all the seizure observations registered between 2017 and 2019, their values remains much lower than the value of seizures from offline sales (14% compared to 86%).
