Growth in the forensic equipment and supplies market is primarily driven by factors such as the growing number of crimes across major countries, ongoing technological advancements in forensic sciences, growing public-private investments in the field of forensics, and the rising awareness among investigators about the role of DNA profiling in criminology.
Government forensic laboratories to account for the largest share of the forensic equipment market, by end user, in 2019
Based on end user, the forensic supplies market is segmented into government forensic laboratories, independent forensic laboratories, and research laboratories & academic institutes. Government forensic laboratories are estimated to be the largest end-users of forensic equipment and supplies, and this trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The large share of this end-user segment can be attributed to the high and growing number of drug abuse cases and paternity/maternity disputes across major countries, coupled with the increasingly stringent guidelines for criminal investigations and their strict implementation across mature countries.
Drug testing/toxicology segment estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment during the forecast period
Toxicology/toxicity testing includes the identification and quantification of pharmacological and chemical substances (such as heroin, cocaine, poisons, alcohols, metals, and gases) in a forensic sample. The growth of the drug testing/toxicology segment is attributed to factors such as the growing availability of innovative toxicity analysis platforms worldwide and the increasing number of drug testing laboratories across major countries.
Instruments segment is expected to account for the largest share of the forensic equipment and supplies market, by product, in 2019
Based on product, the forensic equipment market is segmented into instruments, reagents & consumables, evidence-drying cabinets, and low-temperature storage devices. The instruments segment is expected to account for the largest share of the forensic supplies market in 2019. The increasing adoption of DNA profiling in criminology across emerging and less-developed countries and the increasing production of illicit drugs are the major factors driving the growth of this market segment.
