According to Data Bridge Market Research the Human Identification Market was valued at USD 1.50 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach USD 3.51 billion by 2029, registering a CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period of 2022 to 2029.

“Growing Forensic Applications is increasing the Market Growth”

The growing global crime rate is one of the primary factors boosting the market's growth. In typical forensic services, there are data accumulated from numerous sources, which includes serology and DNA analysis, and profiling DNA from several sources, such as scrapings from blood spatter tissue samples from autopsy and surgery, and hair with roots, among others. The biotechnology-based companies are also involved in criminal justice-related services. For instance, the Indian Government launched three fast-track DNA testing units in Nagpur, Mumbai, and Pune under the Nirbhaya scheme for women and child sexual abuse cases in 2021. This increasing number of crime and government initiatives worldwide are anticipated to boost the market growth.

What restraints the growth of Human Identification Market?

“High Cost of Gene Sequencing”

The high cost of gene sequencing is costing much and acting as a limit to the market growth. The expected cost for generating that initial 'draft' human genome sequence is ~$300 million globally, of which NIH provided around 50-60%. It costs about $600 for scientists to perform gene sequencing. Also, other techniques such as Sanger sequencing, is costly at ~$500/Mb compared to less than $0.50/Mb for NGS platforms. Thus, these factors hinder the market growth.
