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 prevailing market trends and the factors driving the market growth. 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.
New York, July 4 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the publication of the report “Human Identification Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Product and Services, Technology, Application, and End User” – https://www.reportlinker.com/p06289913/?utm_source=GNW
However, the high cost of instruments used for genomic studies is expected to hamper the growth of the human identification market.
Human identification is a branch of science that deals with the analysis of genetic material, helping to identify an individual on the basis of genetics. Human identification has various applications in forensics, paternity testing and others.
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. 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.
The Forensic Unit helps the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) reduce the backlog of sexual assaults. In addition, the Forensic Unit receives federal funds from the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) to process cases. in Texas.
These grants allow the unit to provide free DNA testing services (autosomal STR and Y chromosome typing) to many law enforcement agencies in North Texas counties. Thus, increasing government support and initiatives for forensic programs are driving the human identification market.
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.
The global human identification market is analyzed on the basis of product and service, technology, application, and end-user. On the basis of products and services, the market is segmented into consumables, instruments, services and software.
Further, the consumables segment is categorized into electrophoresis kits and reagents, DNA amplification kits and reagents, DNA quantification kits and reagents, DNA extraction kits and reagents, and DNA extraction kits and reagents. rapid DNA analysis. The consumable laser segment dominated the market in 2021.
It is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on technology, capillary electrophoresis, polymerase chain reaction, nucleic acid purification and extraction, automated liquid handling, DNA microarrays, next-generation sequencing and rapid analysis of DNA. The capillary electrophoresis segment held the largest market share in 2021.
However, the next generation sequencing segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
Based on application, the market is segmented into forensic applications, paternity identification, and other applications. The forensic applications segment held the largest market share in 2021.
It is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into forensic laboratories, research centers and academics and government institutes. The forensic laboratory segment held the largest market share in 2021.
It is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
COVID-19 Impact Analysis: Human Identification Market
The COVID-19 pandemic in the regions has had a mixed impact on the growth of the human identification market. Various companies have stopped their productions and are therefore unable to manufacture to meet the growing demand.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant negative impact on global economies. Health services are of high priority globally to serve patients affected by COVID-19.
Routine healthcare services remained suspended. Market players operating in the human identification market have focused on the development and production of COVD-19 test kits, which has reduced the productive use of human identification products.
Due to the pandemic, many governments have imposed lockdowns to prevent the spread of the virus, which has led to a significant reduction in crime rates. Additionally, the lack of proper standard operating procedures for criminal investigations during the pandemic has significantly reduced the demand for identification products.
On the other hand, the shortage of definitive therapy provides significant opportunities for the genome editing-related market as the US FDA recently approved the use of plasma therapy for critically ill COVID 19 patients. Furthermore, active involvement of governments and associated market players in exploring opportunities for gene editing related products and services are expected to lead to such developments in the human identification market over the coming years. coming years.
The National Institute of Justice (NIJ), the Nantes Atlantique Institute of Genetics (IGNA), the Forensic Capability Network, the International Center for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are among the primary and secondary sources cited during the preparation of the report. in the human identification market.
