Human Identification Market Opportunities and Challenges, Growth by 2029

The Global Human Identification Market the value is expected to be US$1.08 billion by the end of 2022, according to a new report from Future Market Insights (IMF). The market is further expected to exhibit a high CAGR of 8.8% during the forecast period, 2022-2029. A steady increase in the number of natural disasters and fatal road accidents strongly necessitates the demand for more effective forensic DNA technologies for human identification. This would remain an important factor responsible for the gradual growth of the human identification market.

Human identification technology has provided satisfactory results in most cases where there are no close relatives or criminal samples for comparison. Human identification plays a key role in the study of human sample data necessary for various applications such as molecular forensic analysis, paternity and kinship study, sexual assault investigations and many others. felony case.

Key Takeaways – Human Identification Market Research

  • Legal issues such as the exploitation of privacy rights surrounding the collection of samples for comparison purposes from suspects have always been a delicate process.
    • Nevertheless, with the introduction of the DNA phenotyping approach, sample collection has become easy without harming or exploiting dignity or integrity rights.
    • The main advantage of DNA phenotyping is that it is more focused on obtaining genetic profiles from crime scene samples. Additionally, Externally Visible Features (EVC) are publicly available features and therefore would not involve privacy concerns.
    • Predicting EVCs can also be very useful in identifying missing persons and disaster victims when no ante-mortem specimens or next of kin exist for comparison.
  • The increased worldwide attention for forensic identification technology has stimulated research studies, which may appear to be a promising factor for human identification.
    • In July 2019, a study published in the American Academy of Forensic Sciences, which was carried out by the Forensic Science Center (USA) and Michigan State University (USA) showed the development of an ability to protein-based human identification from a single hair.

Over time, human identification has proven to be the most accurate and reliable, yet fastest technology for identifying crime suspects and unknown deceased persons for whom little or no data is available at comparison purposes. Advances in human identification technology will continue to positively influence the forensic science landscape, and human trafficking will be the next stage of growth.

Exploring the disruptive potential of the human identification market

A comprehensive view of the human identification market has led our analysts to conclude that the market is expected to grow at a notable rate, with a continued focus on innovation and product development associated with advancing healthcare systems and providing technologies to support forensic DNA testing for identification and collection of sample data used in human identification procedures. Furthermore, the report findings indicate that North America and Europe capture a major share of the overall human identification market revenue. This was attributed to the presence of accredited forensic laboratories such as the University of North Texas Center for Human Identification (UNTCHI), recognized as a world leader in forensic identification, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. The latter provides support services for free forensic analysis to the FBI and local and state law enforcement agencies.
