According to the counterfeiting intelligence Bureau, hologram s are the leading device used for the authentication of branded products. Similarly, it is arguable that they have become the leading device added to security documents to improve their authentication. In this paper we show the significance of this to the hologram producers; examine the extent to which holograms meet the emerging needs of brand owners and document issuers, and explore the ways that holographic products might evolve to become multi-part items to continue to meet the needs of those who seek authentication. Our conclusion is that hologram scan no longer 'walk alone' as stand-alone items for product or document authentication.
