Growth Factors

 Innovations in forensic science lead to the development of advanced techniques for solving crimes and increasing the efficiency of DNA testing. Government initiatives for achieving progress in research in forensic science, which is critical for public safety, is widening the scope for forensic technology market growth. For instance, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) entered into a partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop new techniques. 

These organizations have also jointly initiated the Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers Program that aids in industry and academic collaborations for efficient R&D in forensic science. One of the major contributions by this program includes the development of practices for preservation and handling of DNA &other biological evidence. These agenda of this program is to enhance the interoperability of national as well as regional automated fingerprinting identification systems, limit investigator bias, and develop standards for efficient analysis in criminal cases.

Report Highlights

Capillary electrophoresis held the largest share in 2020. The dominant share of the segment can be attributed to the benefits offered by this technique. These benefits include increased resolution, reduced risk of cross-contamination, online detection, higher speed, minimal consumption of sample, and easy-to-use techniques. 

This technique can also quantify and provide rapid profiling of anionic species found in poisons and explosives. Widespread usage of the capillary electrophoresis technique has been observed owing to its ease in preparing samples, simpler detection methods, and microsampling capabilities.

Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) is expected to grow at a lucrative rate over the coming years. This lucrative growth rate can be attributed to the associated benefits such as its improved ability of human identification in degraded biological samples and enhanced paternity testing.

NGS also allows the generation of total human genome data and helps reduce bias &errors. Moreover, the penetration of NGS into newer applications is also expected to present lucrative opportunities. For example, Applied Biosystems Precision ID NGS System developed by Thermo Fisher Scientific was launched specifically for human identification.

Chemical analysis captured considerable share in the services segment in . Chemical analysis has a wide array of applications such as toxicology studies, fire debris analysis, bloodstain pattern analysis, serology, alcohol testing, fingerprinting, and analysis of trace evidence, which is presumed to provide an upsurge to the segment. 

The increasing preference of forensic experts toward chemical analysis cases of drug abuse is also one of the key growth contributing factors. For instance, a breathalyzer kit is used by most of the state patrol vehicles and police squad cars to identify alcohol intoxication.

DNA profiling is expected to exhibit lucrative growth throughout the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to its wide range of applications in body fluid identification, paternity testing, the examination of drug abuse, and the identification of disaster victims. 

Moreover, growing R&D and DNA databases across the globe are predicted to drive the market over the coming years. For instance, the Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Justice allocated funds of USD 2.5 million to develop advanced technologies that can increase the efficiency of tests.

Judicial/law enforcement captured the largest share in the application segment in 2020. Consistent efforts by government authorities across the globe to create DNA databases are serving as a key growth contributing factor. The DNA Identification Act 1994 in the U.S. provided the FBI authority to develop a national DNA database to assist in solving backlog criminal cases, which has resulted in a significant upsurge in the adoption of forensics in the administration of justice. 

Moreover, the growth in judicial applications is also driven by the adoption of a wide array of other techniques that allows lab technicians to gather information from DNA samples at reduced costs and time. For instance, with the help of technologically advanced techniques, it is possible to generate DNA profiles within 90 minutes from swabs.

Biodefense & bio-surveillance is anticipated to grow at a constant CAGR over the coming years. Sudden disease outbreaks caused by naturally occurring pathogens are responsible for over 15.0 million deaths every year, which exerts a huge impact on the global economy, thereby presenting an attractive market opportunity. Furthermore, increasing the risk of terrorism through bioweapons is anticipated to fuel the segment growth.

Laboratory forensic technology accounted for the largest share of the location segment in 2020. This can be attributed to the presence of testing instruments, which are bulky in nature and designed for the testing of a large volume of samples. 

In addition, the adoption of laboratory equipment by forensic experts is higher as they are relatively cheaper. Various regulations have been established to ensure a high quality of forensic laboratories for achieving results with higher accuracy, which is anticipated to provide a significant boost to the market. 

The portable technology segment is predicted to grow at an exponential CAGR during the forecast period. The introduction of portable& handheld devices allows on-site operation and is largely used in the detection of alcohol and drug intoxication, especially in case of road accidents. Moreover, such portable testing devices are expected to reduce the backlog of pending criminal cases in laboratories.

North America accounted for the largest share of over 37.0% of the market owing to the increasing rate of violent crimes across this region. There has been a significant increase in the adoption of forensics by private companies and law enforcement agencies amongst various sectors including healthcare in this region, thereby attracting a higher share. The development of sophisticated and supportive healthcare infrastructure has led to an improvement in the efficiency of forensic studies and is anticipated to boost the market.

The Asia Pacific is expected to grow at an exponential rate of 14.6% throughout the forecast period. This exponential growth can be attributed to rising investments in human identification applications across this region. In addition, an exponential rise in the number of criminal activities in emerging economies such as India and China has raised the need to adopt various technologies for DNA identification for expedited conviction.
