Global Human Identification Market Report 2022: Surge in Government Initiatives and Investments into Forensics Fueling Growth –


The “Human Identification Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis By Product and Services, Technology, Application, and End User” report has been added to’s offering.

The human identification market size is projected 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 trends prevailing in the market and factors driving the market growth. The growth of human genomics market is driven by various factors such as surge in government initiatives and investments to support forensics programs, along with increase in novel sampling methods and portable equipment. However, high cost of instruments used for genomic studies are expected to hamper the growth of the human identification market.

Government entities worldwide have strengthened their support for the field of human identification due to its potential, demand, and varied applications in various industries. Many forensic science disciplines, including DNA analysis, are undergoing a transformation in the US and the world. New approaches are being created, validated, and implemented to help criminal investigations. Investigators face challenges regarding the validity and accuracy of older and current methods.


Forensic DNA analysis can help reunite families, particularly in cases where children separate from their parents at an early age. The Forensic Project, funded by the Bureau of Democracy of the US Department of State, intends to increase the use of this evaluation technique to assist families separated during riots and violent incidents. The Center for Human Identification (CHI) at the University of North Texas Health Science Center at 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.

Moreover, many forensic research projects focus on developing novel analytical instruments, assessment techniques for trace amounts of evidence, and proteomic analysis techniques with unique sampling procedures, allowing hair-, skin-, and bone-based identification.

Several portable equipment types have been manufactured for extensive analysis in the on-site field. Portable forensic instruments prove to be useful in transporting unstable, perishable, or hazardous compounds to the laboratory, which are further expected to propel the market during the forecast period.

Additionally, scientists sequence a DNA sample and provide investigators information on the probable characteristics of suspects, such as hair, eye, and skin color, to identify them. Age and biological background can also be predicted using newer approaches. The personnel can also use biosensors to analyze the minute traces of bodily fluids found in fingerprints to identify the suspect. Data detected using such samples include age, medications, gender, and lifestyle.

Furthermore, a smartphone-based sensor has been developed to evaluate a saliva sample through immunochromatography; the tests can also be run away from a lab. Geolocating a suspect or victim using stable isotopes of water is another advanced technique in forensic sciences. Scientists can determine the sample’s origin by isolating the 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.
