A new report by XploreMR studies the growth drivers, trends, restraints, and highlights of the global human identification market. Presenting exclusive insights into the market from 2019 to 2029, the report projects that the market will witness notable growth during the forecast period. Human identification is the process essentially used in forensics to identify the traces of a human, by analyzing the available samples of hair, skin, blood, fingerprints, and DNA, in the physical proximity of an accident, crime scene, or disaster. Predominantly used in forensic investigations, the human identification market is anticipated to witness significant growth, on the back of high demand from law enforcement agencies, and increasing research and development activities to enhance the accuracy of the identification techniques.

High Adoption of DNA Analysis in Law Enforcement Agencies Drives Demand

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) reports, more than 1.2 Mn cases of violence were registered in the US, with 18% of the cases resulting in murder. The mushrooming number of criminal cases year-on-year is subsequently propelling the demand for effective human identification solutions among investigating departments. The high adoption of DNA analysis human identification systems in law enforcement agencies is a major factor contributing to the growth of the market. DNA analysis utilizes DNA fragments collected from human cells and measured by fluorescent labels and automated instruments and is considered the most efficient method of human identification. With accuracy being the desired feature for human identification systems, market players are significantly investing in research and development activities (R&D) to enhance the quality of these technologies. Moreover, market players are focusing on developing DNA phenotyping technology, which collects genetic profiles of samples obtained from the crime scene, and this technology is expected to aid law enforcement bodies to identify a missing person or disaster victim. Such developments will continue to drive the human identification market on a positive growth trajectory. On the other hand, fluctuating prices of genomics instruments are impeding the growth of the human identification market to an extent.

North America and Europe Bestow Lucrative Revenue Opportunities

North America and Europe cumulatively hold the majority of share in the global human identification market, owing to high investments in R&D activities to develop cutting-edge technologies. Moreover, being developed economies, the regions are also bolstered by the strong presence of major market players, such as Thermo Fisher Scientific, Illumina Inc., and Promega Corp., to name a few. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness a healthy growth, on the back of rising crime rates and increasing need for effective systems.
