Market Overview

The forensic medicine market will show rapid growth due to the increase in global crime rate, the sophistication of crime and the increasing demand for forensic technologies.

  • The crime rates are on the rise, globally and this increase in the crime rates is expected to boost the overall growth of the market. In the Latin American region, the crime rate is very high with violent crime constituting the major part of it. In Colombia, it is estimated that one person is murdered every 10 minutes, due to high levels of social inequality, civil wars and armed conflicts, and low economic growth rate. According to the World Bank, one-fifth of Brazil's 173 million people account for only a 2.2% share of the national income.
  • Hence this has increased the demand for forensic techniques that involves collection and analysis of medical evidence, to produce objective information for use in the legal system i.e. forensic medicine. Therefore, all these factors have increased the overall demand for the market studied.
  • Also, the development of strong institutions and collaborations has led to the sustained growth of forensic medicine. However, government regulations and the decline in the supply of forensic services has restrained the growth of the market.

Key Market Trends

Finger Print Analysis is Expected to be the Largest Growing Segment in the Forensic Medicine Market

  • Fingerprints are being used to identify the suspects and helps in solving the crime and also remain an extremely valuable tool for law enforcement. Fingerprint identification, thus, helps in tracking a criminal’s record, and their associated previous arrests to aid in decision making.
  • However, fingerprints provide significantly more information about an individual. In the context of crime scene investigation, the identification of latent fingerprints is the process of analyzing the latent prints against a database of fingerprints to try to find a match.
  • Thus, the fingerprint identification techniques continue to evolve with the increased availability and this field promises to be exciting for the years to come.

North America is Found Leading the Forensic Medicine Market

The United States in the North American region dominates the market of forensic medicine, due to the increasing rate of crimes in the country. There has been a significant increase in the adoption of forensics by private companies and law enforcement agencies in various sectors, including healthcare. North America thus accounts for the maximum contribution of the total publications on forensic medicine.


Competitive Landscape

There has been a presence of a considerable number of companies that are significantly contributing to the market growth. New product launches, mergers and acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations are the key strategies undertaken by these companies for sustainable growth.
