Molecular Forensics Market Trend- Introduction of Next-Generation Sequencing Technologies

Increasing number of crimes and criminal investigations across the globe, rapid advancements in molecular technology, and rising funds for forensic programs by public and private sectors are some key factors expected to drive global Molecular Forensics market growth.

According to Emergen Research, the global molecular forensics market size was USD 1,097.7 million in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 2,223.7 million in 2027 and register a steady revenue CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period, 2020-2027.

Market Dynamics:

Molecular forensics is an important branch of science that offers comprehensive coverage of importance of molecular analysis in forensic science. It involves the application of molecular analysis technology in forensic research. Molecular forensics is widely used to investigate and establish facts of interest about criminal, administrative, and civil hearings. It emphasizes molecular techniques such as DNA profiling, origin of genetic polymorphisms, or repetitive DNA in human genome. Some of the common applications of molecular genetics include radioactive toxicology, nucleic acid analysis, forensic database, and microbial forensics.
