Human identification plays a significant role in forensic science, paternity testing, disaster victim identification, and anthropology. A number of factors are propelling the growth of this market, such as the expansion of the U.S. national DNA database, provision of government funding for human identification by DNA analysis, rise in awareness of new technologies, technological advancements, and the need for cost- and time-effective forensic procedures. Other notable contributors that will spur the growth of this market are governmental focus on the creation/expansion of DNA databases, and the increasing significance of human identification in law enforcement.

Inquiry Before Buying:

Forensic science is the largest application area for human identification, and is expected to grow at a high CAGR in the next five years. Forensic science deals with the collection and analysis of information to identify individuals involved in criminal acts. In recent years, the incidence of crimes, such as robbery, murder and rape, has increased substantially. In 2012, an estimated 1,214,462 violent crimes took place in the U.S., which is 0.7% higher than 2011’s figure. (Source: Crime Reports, 2012 by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)). The investigation of so many crimes demands the use of advanced forensic tools to ascertain the identities of those involved and the details of said crimes. Such identification is usually performed by analyzing fingerprints, teeth, and bones. The most-widely used analysis technique for human identification is the study of DNA, using blood stains, tissues, and hair and skin samples.

The use of NGS (Next Generation Sequencing) and rapid DNA analysis technologies is poised to witness high growth in the coming years because of the rising demand for accurate and quick DNA analyses. The high growth of the NGS segment is likely to be driven by its various advantages over other sequencing methods and its time-effectiveness. Through NGS, the entire human genome can be sequenced in one day. Furthermore, companies and the academia are collaborating for research in DNA analysis and using NGS platforms for research purposes.

Rapid DNA analysis technology enables samples to be analyzed in real-time and at the crime scene itself. It can produce a DNA profile in less than 90 minutes. Therefore, this technology is expected to see increased use by the police, as it does not require technical expertise. This is a major reason for the high growth of the human identification market.
