Forensic technologies are used in the identification, interpretation, and evaluation of evidence gathered from the scene of crime. The application of various forensic technologies has increased with time as forensic science undergoes major developments. The use of advanced DNA profiling techniques such as miniaturization and microchips in identifying suspects in various forms of violent and non-violent crimes and in analyzing relics and skeletal remains has greatly supported the forensic technologies market.

The global forensic technologies market has been studied on the basis of location, service, and geography.

By location, the market is bifurcated into portable and laboratory forensic technologies.

By service, the market for forensic technologies has been divided into biometrics and fingerprint analysis, firearms identification and analysis, DNA profiling, chemical analysis, and forensic supplies and equipment. The segment of chemical analysis includes an assessment of explosives, drugs, and toxic substances. The segment of DNA profiling dominated the overall market for forensic technologies by service and is anticipated to expand at a healthy 11% CAGR from 2013 to 2019. The growing demand for DNA profiling in crime-solving and its demand from law enforcement agencies has greatly driven this segment. Biometrics also holds a significant share in the forensic technologies market and is likely to witness strong growth in the near future.

Based on geography, the global forensic technologies market has been categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America presently dominates the overall market, followed by Europe. The use of advanced and standardized forensic technologies in various applications has been driving both these regional markets. However, Asia Pacific and RoW are anticipated to gain significant market share by the end of the forecast period. Driven by the cheaper availability of various forensic technologies, these two segments are projected to acquire a joint share of 60% by 2019.

The report highlights the prominent players competing in the global forensic technologies market and evaluates them based on attributes such as company overview, business strategies, product portfolio, and financial standing. Eurofins Medigenomix Gmbh, SPEX Forensics, Pyramidal Technologies Ltd., GE Healthcare Life Sciences, NMS Labs, Inc., and LGC Forensics are some of the key companies in the forensic technologies market. A SWOT analysis conducted by analysts sheds light on the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of these companies, giving clients sharp and actionable insight into their competitors.
