Forensic Technology Market Growth & Trends

The global forensic technology market size is expected to reach USD 40.4 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Innovations in forensic science lead to the development of advanced techniques for solving crimes and increasing the efficiency of DNA testing. Government initiatives for achieving progress in research in forensic science, which is critical for public safety, is widening the scope for forensic technology market growth. For instance, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) entered into a partnership with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and National Science Foundation (NSF) to develop new techniques. 

These organizations have also jointly initiated the Industry/University Cooperative Research Centers Program that aids in industry and academic collaborations for efficient R&D in forensic science. One of the major contributions by this program includes the development of practices for preservation and handling of DNA &other biological evidence. These agenda of this program is to enhance the interoperability of national as well as regional automated fingerprinting identification systems, limit investigator bias, and develop standards for efficient analysis in criminal cases.
