I think productID doesn't have to be so much closely defined. It should
be sufficient to use it without the namespace.

<meta itemprop="productID" content="123-456-789" />

Depending on the context one can find out what it would be. 

If one defines a product for an amazon shop it is obviously an ASIN, if
one defines a book it is an isbn, if one writes an article about samsung
it may use a serial number of one specific product or a identifier for
the whole range of products.

In any way the product is defined. It only depends on the person which
sets the whole thing up. Google can find anything matching to the
definition anyway.

Regards Matthias
