Global Forensic Technologies Market $42.5 Billion by 2029

The global market for forensic technologies estimated to reach $42.5 billion by 2029, growing at a double-digit CAGR of 10.3% over the forecast period, driven by technological breakthroughs, and increasing productivity at lower costs.

Global Forensic Technologies Market

Measurements in forensic technologies include analysis of evidence, fingerprinting or DNA identification, analyzing drugs or chemicals, and dealing with body fluids. 

  • Numerous procedures of technology and forensic science methods are used to assist in crime inhibition, intrusion, and response.
    • The development of DNA typing in forensic science has been extremely rapid, and it is witnessing a new era of DNA technology including automation and miniaturization.

The global forensic technologies market report provides market size ($million 2019 to 2029), market share, growth trends and forecast (CAGR%, 2023 to 2029). 

The global forensic technologies market segmented by service (DNA profiling, biometrics, fingerprints analysis, chemical analysis, firearms identification and analysis), location (laboratory forensics technology, portable forensics technology), and geography.

There are two main applications of DNA analysis in forensic medicine include criminal investigation and paternity testing.

  • The technological advances in forensic science have enabled identifying suspects in various crimes, as well as identifying skeletons or corpses and victims of disasters.
    • Forensic technologies is becoming an essential tool for homeland defense, law enforcement, maintaining social order, justice, and security.
      • Overall, the technology has immensely contributed in increasing productivity at lower costs.
      • Currently, short tandem repeat (STR) fragment analysis, Sanger sequencing, SNapShot, and capillary electrophoresis-single strand conformation polymorphism (CE-SSCP) are a few of the techniques that have been used for the genetic analysis of DNA samples.
        • The next generation sequencing (NGS) is the newest and most revolutionary technology and has the potential to be the next standard for genetic analysis.
      • However, the more common limiting factors in the development of standard guidelines of non-human forensic genetic analyses across different state laboratories are the lack of consensus in methodologies, supporting allelic databases and standardized statistical analyses.
        • Addressing those issues could lay the foundation for non-human analyses to be on par with human analyses.
  • Matching DNA samples from crime scenes and suspects is rapidly becoming a key source of evidence for use in the justice system. DNA technology in forensic science offers recommendations for resolving crucial questions that are emerging as DNA typing becomes more widespread.
    • Recent technological developments are creating new possibilities to perform robust scientific measurements and studies outside the controlled laboratory environment. The benefits of real-time, on-site forensic investigations are manifold and such technology has the potential to strongly increase the speed and efficacy of the criminal justice system.
      • However, such benefits are only realized when quality can be guaranteed at all times and findings can be used as forensic evidence in court.
