DNA Forensics Market size to exceed $5.5bn by 2032

  • Published Date: November 30, 2022

DNA Forensics market size is anticipated to reach over USD 5.5 billion by 2032, as per a recent research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Technological advancements in paternity and familial testing will pave the way for the DNA forensics industry growth. DNA analysis of biological evidence provides accurate information regarding maternity, paternity, and ancestry. The sophistication of genetic fingerprinting and DNA typing techniques has allowed forensic scientists to match suspects with DNA samples derived from a crime scene. Furthermore, the development of DNA sequencing methods with higher efficiency and sensitivity is transforming the space of prenatal genetic testing with novel approaches for initial screening during new pregnancies. These techniques can effectively identify even small amounts of fetal DNS circulating in the blood of the mother.

Rise in crime rate to fuel the demand for DNA-grade consumables

A substantial rise in demand for DNA forensics consumables. The consumables segment is anticipated to witness a 7.5% CAGR between 2023-2032. A disturbing rise in crime rate worldwide is propelling the demand for forensics DNA consumables. Centrifuge tubes, filter baskets, and cotton swabs are some of the commonly used consumable products in investigation and DNA testing procedures.

High preference for automated genetic analytics to boost the use of CE method

DNA Forensics Market from capillary electrophoresis (CE) method segment was valued at more than USD 920 million in 2022. Capillary electrophoresis is a procedure performed in DNA forensic laboratories to separate and detect short tandem repeat (STR) alleles. As a result, it facilitates rapid separation via efficient heat dissipation in the capillary. Additionally, CE offers a wide range of benefits over traditional methods such as the automation of injection, separation, and detection processes. The method is gaining acceptance as one of the most novel and high-throughput genetic testing methods which supports the use of more than capillaries to run multiple samples.

Growing cases of homicide to drive the need for criminal testing

Criminal testing application accounted for more than 56.5% share of the DNA forensics market in 2022. The rising number of crimes is fueling the demand for DNA forensic testing. According to the Council of Criminal Justice, the prevalence of violence among younger people increased notably, with 40% of individuals arrested for murder aged between 20 to 29 years of age.

Favorable projects to drive Europe DNA forensics industry development

Europe DNA forensics market is poised to surpass USD 1.4 billion by the end of 2032. Rising public and private investments in the field of DNA forensics science will offer lucrative scope for industry expansion. Recent economic, biological, and political events have also affected the DNA forensics industry outlook in Europe. For instance, in June 2022, France announced plans to send a mobile DNA laboratory to Kyiv to support forensic investigations pertaining to war crimes by Russian forces in Ukraine. The initiative is aimed at offering rapid genetic analysis of large volumes of biological samples.

Expansion initiatives to boost DNA forensics industry growth

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. are some of the leading companies in the global DNA forensics industry.
