Global Human Identification Market Report 2022: Rising Government Initiatives and Investments in Forensics Fueling Growth

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Human Identification Market Forecast to 2028 – Impact of COVID-19 and Global Analysis by Product & Services, Technology, Application and End User” report has been added to from offer.

The human identification market size is expected to reach US$3,900.24 million by 2028, from US$1,827.02 million in 2021. It is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.4% from 2021 to 2028.

The report highlights the trends prevailing in the market and the factors driving the growth of the market. The growth of the human genomics market is driven by various factors such as increase in government initiatives and investments to support forensic programs as well as increase in new sampling methods and portable equipment. However, the high cost of instruments used for genomic studies is expected to hamper the growth of the human identification market.

Government entities around the world have increased their support for the field of human identification due to its potential, demand and varied applications in various industries. Many forensic disciplines, including DNA analysis, are undergoing a transformation in the United States and around the world. New approaches are created, validated and implemented to aid criminal investigations. Investigators face challenges regarding the validity and accuracy of old and current methods.

Forensic DNA analysis can help reunite families, especially in cases where children become separated from their parents at an early age. The Forensic Project, funded by the US State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, intends to expand the use of this assessment technique to help families separated during riots and violent incidents. The Human Identification Center (CHI) at the University of North Texas Health Sciences Center in Fort Worth is a world-renowned hub for forensic DNA testing, as it receives funding from the State of Texas and various federal government agencies.

Additionally, many forensic research projects focus on the development of new analytical instruments, trace evidence evaluation techniques, and proteomic analysis techniques with unique sampling procedures, enabling identification based on hair, skin and bones.

Several types of portable equipment have been manufactured for in-depth field analysis. Portable forensic instruments prove useful in transporting unstable, perishable or hazardous compounds to the laboratory which is further expected to propel the market over the forecast period.

Additionally, scientists sequence a DNA sample and provide investigators with information on the suspects’ likely characteristics, such as hair, eye and skin color, to identify them. Age and biological history can also be predicted using new approaches. Staff can also use biosensors to analyze the minute traces of bodily fluids found in fingerprints to identify the suspect. Data detected using these samples includes age, medications, gender, and lifestyle.

Additionally, a smartphone-based sensor was developed to assess a saliva sample by immunochromatography; tests can also be run from a lab. Geolocating a suspect or victim using stable isotopes of water is another advanced technique in forensic science. Scientists can determine the origin of the sample by isolating isotopes in a water sample found on a suspect or victim. Thus, advancements based on modern technologies and smart sampling methods are generating new trends in the market.
