New York, July 25. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — announces the publication of the report “Human Identification – A Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Offer, Technology, Application, End User, and Region – Analysis and Forecast, 2022-2032” – https: //

Market life cycle stage

Human identification is widely used in forensics, paternity testing, identification of disaster victims, and anthropology, among other applications, with DNA analysis/profiling being a key tool in this sector. under constant pressure to increase the efficiency of their workflows without sacrificing quality.

Examining the variety of biological indicators available to investigators illustrates the basic principles of every process of criminal investigation and paternity identification. Although DNA and fingerprints are clearly the preferred methods of identification, they require prior documentation and a verifiable baseline for comparison.

Other remarkable advances in the field of genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, data analysis and technical engineering have paved the way for the development of advanced NGS-based technologies, such as sequencing SNPs and STRs. The impressive research on molecular technologies and biomarkers using NGS has opened avenues for the development of various life-saving procedures such as mtDNA sequencing.

The growing demand for non-invasive diagnostic procedures enabling genetic profiling has further increased the requirement for NGS technologies. Recognizing the future potential for massive growth in demand for non-invasive diagnostic procedures, several biotechnology companies such as Illumina, Inc., Thermo Fisher Scientific, and Agilent Technologies, Inc. have invested significantly to foster the development of forensic technologies .


• Rising demand for human identification products/technologies is expected to sustain the growth of the global human identification market during the forecast period 2022-2032.
• The market is expected to grow at a significant growth rate owing to opportunities such as high adoption of forensic applications in the field of computational biology and technological advancements in the field of molecular techniques and diagnostic tests.

Impact of COVID-19

The current global human identification market includes various applications such as forensic applications, paternity applications, and other applications. It was found that there has been a reduction in capacity or closures of laboratories and other research institutions, which has led to a reduction in the use of various research-related products and services.

The government has imposed various restrictions during COVID-19, such as travel bans, quarantines, curfews, business closures, and lockdowns. This has led to an increase in the cost of services related to COVID-19.

There have been many issues during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as operational failures, shipping issues, inaccurate demand forecasts, and other production issues.

Additionally, employee health and safety has been affected as COVID-19 has reduced the efficiency of employees’ work potential. However, the COVID-19 related market grew during the pandemic as customers needed testing services.

Overall, the impact of COVID-19 on the market size has been low to moderate. Some market participants reported a slight drop in sales.

However, finances are already on the road to recovery. The drop in revenue is mainly due to the initial phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, which included complete shutdowns in countries and major cities, thus interrupting the supply chain.

The impact timeline spanned the end of Q1 and Q2 2020 for most key markets across the globe. However, the pandemic has played a key role in improving the growth prospects of human identification and is expected to indirectly help improve the growth prospects of the market.
