Forensic Technologies and Services: A US Market Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Forensics emerged as a dynamic field in the modern economy driven by convergence of social demands and technological change. Growth in the market is governed by rising crime rates, and increasing demand for a full suite of forensic technologies spanning evidence collection, preservation, processing, scientific testing and analysis. Other key growth drivers include increasing emphasis on security and stronger role of forensic science in courtrooms in connection with criminal and civil proceedings.

The crime scene in the country is generating perennial demand for forensic ballistic intelligence. Incidences of gun violence and homicides continue to rise in the US with about 300 million citizens legally owning guns and more than 5.8 million firearms sold each year. The ‘Gun Culture” continues to remain an issue of political debate and social concern in the country that has one of the highest gun ownership of 88.8 guns per 100 people. Other factors responsible for the increasing incidence of crime in the country include deterioration in parenting and family values, poor diagnosis and treatment of mental illnesses, inadequate mental healthcare system, easy accessibility to guns, and rise in cocaine use and drug trafficking.

Technological developments such as development of Human Microbiome, which is a collection of all the micro organisms found on human body organs, promises to unlock vital evidence for forensic investigators. Another important development is the Innovative Spectroscopy Technique, which is a modified adaption of widely prevalent X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) that promises to impart more effective results in cloth fiber analysis. Raman Spectroscopy for identifying the brand of lipstick worn by someone present at the crime scene and use of nanoparticles for easy detection of fingerprints on paper represents other technological advancements that are expected to drive future growth in the market.

As stated by the new market research report on Forensic Technologies and Services, growth in the United States is led by rising gun violence, digital crimes, terrorist bombings, and government intervention to upgrade crime lab infrastructure and expand criminal DNA database, among others.
