Forensic Technologies Market By Technology Type (DNA Testing, Chemical Analysis, Automated Liquid Handling Technology, Capillary Electrophoresis, Biometric/Fingerprint Analysis, Firearm Analysis, Others), By Application (Pharmacogenetics, Biodefense & Biosurveillance, Judicial/Law Enforcement, Digital Forensics, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The global forensic technologies market was worth US$ 3,939.6 million in 2017 and is expected to grow at an 8.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2018 to 2026. Some of the most significant factors driving the growth of the global forensic technologies market are growing crime rates worldwide, increasing government measures to prevent terrorist attacks, and demand for portable and quick forensic technologies at the scene of a crime. The market is simultaneously driven by technological advancements and applications in DNA testing, fingerprint tracing, and ballistic surveillance.

Growing cases of cybercrime have made both the private and public sectors vulnerable to attacks. The capabilities of forensic technologies have developed, leading to a drop in the price of forensic analysis and expanded use of forensic services. Moreover, enhanced computer data and mobile device recovery, improved fingerprint recovery, real-time DNA sequencers for DNA identification, and sensing technologies to improve drugs and explosive detection are driving the demand for forensic technologies.

The portability of DNA profiling technologies for crime scenes and the development of facial recognition, biometrics, and scanning are other factors that have increased practical application, reduced per-unit costs of the forensic application, and enhanced market penetration of the forensic technologies market.

Market Synopsis

Forensics Technologies Market to be Driven by Technological Advancements

The forensic sector is one of the fastest-growing business sectors in the modern economy, owing to technological changes and growing social demands. In 2017, polymerase chain reaction held the largest share in the global forensic technologies market owing to growth in DNA testing.

For instance, DNA testing has led to the initiation of the Innocence Project in the U.S., which resulted in the acquittal of 350 innocent Americans in 2017. Capillary electrophoresis is expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to benefits such as increased resolution, higher speed, minimal consumption of sample, ease in handling, and reduced risk of contamination.

North America Dominated the Global Forensic Technologies Market

In 2017, North America held the largest share of the global forensic technologies market owing to growing crime rates in the region, an increased need for forensic research, and access to the latest technologically advanced forensic techniques. The U.S. accounted for the lion’s share in North America. There has been an increase in the number of forensic laboratories in the country. For instance, the number of forensic laboratories rose from 300 in 1999 to 475 in 2017, owing to the growing demand for forensic analysis.

Moreover, market experts suggest that the rate of digital crimes such as data espionage, cyber-based terrorism, computer intrusions, hacking, malware, and others is relatively higher in the Americas region. Europe is the second-largest region in the global forensic technologies market, whereas Asia-Pacific is projected to grow at the fastest rate owing to growing crime rates in India, China, and other Asian countries. There is a growing demand for forensic investigation in telecom, power, oil and gas, railways, and airports due to terrorism and increasing crimes in the region.
