Forensic Technology Services in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Forensic Technology Services

The Forensic Technology Services industry, which provides a variety of forensic services used in criminal investigations, has rebounded to steady growth over the five years to 2017. The industry's growth has been facilitated by the rapid technological changes that have revolutionized every facet of forensic services, making forensic evidence an indispensable part of most criminal investigations. The introduction of high-tech biometrics technology, especially pertaining to forensic DNA analysis, has been essential to the growth of the industry, enabling scientists to extract larger quantities of value data from smaller DNA samples. Over the five years to 2022, industry growth is forecast to increase at a slower pace than the current period, due to a declining crime rate, which is expected to reduce the number of forensic testing requests at the federal, state, county and municipal levels.

Companies in this industry provide database forensics and testing services, such as biometrics, fingerprinting and DNA testing. Other testing services include forensic biology, forensic toxicology immunoassay (drug testing), testing for controlled substances and ballistics testing using analytical instruments.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
