Based on solution, the DNA forensics market share from analyzers & sequencers is estimated to surpass USD 1.4 billion by 2032. The advent of DNA sequencing has revolutionized forensic science. Next-generation DNA sequencing can be used to assess low concentrations of DNA for determining the cause of death. Analyzers and sequencers provide accurate results faster. Technological advancements in gene sequencing and medical devices will enable the development of innovative tools for DNA analysis.

PCR amplification to find considerable application during crime scene investigations

DNA forensics market from PCR amplification method is expected to witness over 6.5% CAGR between 2023-2032. Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) plays a crucial role in the amplification of DNA sequences from samples that are low in quantity and quality. Investigation of crime scenes without plenty of forensic samples requires PCR amplification in order to match up to a certain level before being sequenced. Rising incidences of sophisticated crimes are fueling the need for next-generation technologies that can amplify millions to billions of copies of a specific DNA segment.

Rise in cases of missing person to fuel the need for paternity & familial testing

DNA forensics market from paternity & familial testing application is estimated to surpass USD 2.3 billion by 2032. The rising number of missing persons reports worldwide is propelling the demand for paternity testing in DNA forensics. For instance, according to the Missing Person & Unidentified Person report published by National Crime Information Center (NCIC), the number of active missing person cases in the U.S. reached 89,637 in 2020. Nearly 34% of these cases included juveniles under the age of 18, necessitating familial and paternity testing for investigation.

North America region accounted for more than 42% share of the DNA forensics market in 2022. Supportive government initiatives and rising R&D investments will enable the expansion of DNA forensics labs across the region. For instance, in November 2022, the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) of the U.S. Department of Justice awarded nearly USD 160 million in grants. OJP aims to fund forensics research, identify human remains, support crime laboratories, and assist investigators in locating missing persons. Similar initiatives are underway across the U.S. focusing on boosting the capacity of its crime labs. Rapid penetration of advanced DNA and genome sequencing technologies in the U.S. and Canada will offer lucrative scope for industry landscape.

New product launches to boost global DNA forensics industry development

Some of the leading companies in the DNA forensics market include Thermo Fischer Scientific, Abbott, Beckman Coulter Inc, Promega Corporation, VERISIS, Bode Cellmark Forensics, Inc, Bio-Rad Laboratories, Qiagen, Illumina, Inc, GORDIZ, LabWare, and LabVantage Solution Inc. These companies are mainly focusing on new product development initiatives.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on DNA forensics market trends

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively affected the DNA forensics industry. Due to unprecedented disruptions and significant economic doom, several businesses were forced to shut down resulting in supply chain issues. Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, hospitals witnessed a significant drop in the demand for non-essential medical services such as DNA tests. Additionally, the high risk of contracting coronavirus while handling tissue samples and body fluids limited the number of DNA forensic tests performed. However, a notable rise in the crime rate may propel the demand for forensic tests in the post pandemic era.
