Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global DNA Forensic Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global DNA forensic market: Lockheed Martin, M2SYS Technology, NEC, and Safran.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Agilent Technologies, CrossResolve, EasyDNA, GE Healthcare, Genetrack Biolabs, homeDNAdirect, NetBio, NMS Labs, and Thermo Fisher Scientific.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The increasing popularity of digital forensics will be a key trend for market growth. There have been extensive advances in IT, which have brought about a shift in the types of devices used for forensics. The technological advances have also brought frequent changes and challenges to the IT roadmap because criminals are themselves using more sophisticated electronic methods and devices to commit crimes. Digital forensics is gaining importance because law enforcement officials are using it increasingly to identify the crime and criminals.”
According to the report, rise in terror activities will be the key driver for market growth. DNA forensic is getting adopted at a faster rate due to increasing instances of terror and violent activities across the globe. Many developed and developing countries face numerous security threats. For instance, the war in Syria in 2015 and the Paris attack of November 2015 have increased the need for DNA sampling in these countries to identify victims and attackers. To prevent such attacks and take precautions against border and terrorist attacks, the government of every country has taken initiatives to investigate and identify criminals, fostering the demand for DNA forensic solutions.
Further, the report states that lack of standardization will be one of the major challenges against the market growth. Despite the advanced qualities of emerging biometrics technologies, the growth of the market is inhibited due to the lack of standardization for biometric solutions. Without standardization, companies will not be able to produce standard biometrics devices. In addition, the high dependence on non-standard technologies is hindering the growth of the market. However, the governments of a number of countries such as the US is focusing on the standardization of biometrics to enhance vendor participation by providing them with fair opportunities.
