The global human identification market reaches $6.43 billion

Dublin, August 4, 2022 (The Globe Newswire) – The “Human Definition – Global and Regional Analysis: Focus on Supply, Technology, Application, End User, and Region – Analysis and Forecasting, 2022-2032” Report added to Show.

Global Human Identification Market Overview

The global human identification market is expected to reach $6,435.6 million by 2032 from $1,385.8 million in 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of 14.77% over the forecast period 2022-2032. The growth in the global Human Identification market is expected to be driven by the increasing adoption of NGS in various areas of research, high adoption of forensic applications, and technological advancements in the field of molecular technologies and diagnostic tests.

Market life cycle stage

Human identification is widely used in forensics, paternity testing, disaster victim identification and anthropology, among other applications, with DNA analysis/profiling as a key tool in the sector. Due to increasing demands on time and resources, human identification and forensic laboratories are under constant pressure to increase workflow efficiency without sacrificing quality. Examination of the variety of biomarkers available to investigators clarifies the basic principles of each process in criminal investigation and paternity determination.

While DNA and fingerprints are clearly the preferred methods of identification, they require prior history and a verifiable baseline for comparison. Other notable advances in the field of genomics, proteomics, molecular biology, data analytics and technical engineering have paved the way for the development of advanced NGS-based technologies, such as SNP and STR sequencing.

Impressive research on molecular techniques and biomarkers using NGS has opened pathways for the development of many important procedures such as mtDNA sequencing. The growing demand for non-invasive diagnostic procedures that enable genotyping has further enhanced the requirements for NGS technologies.


  • Increased demand for human identification products/technologies is expected to support the growth of the global human identification market during the forecast period 2022-2032.
  • The market is expected to grow at a significant growth rate due to opportunities such as the high adoption of forensic applications in the field of computational biology and technological advances in the field of molecular techniques and diagnostic tests.
