Human Identification Market
Human Identification Market

Global Human Identification Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of around 12% during the forecast period. The global human identification market is anticipated to witness an uptick owing to the growing technological advancements in human identification systems and rising government funding and initiatives. For instance, in May 2020, the government of India acquired DNA testing kits for tracing the “purity of races” of its 1.4 billion population sparked outrage. INR 10 crore of funds have also been set aside for the project by the culture ministry of India. Furthermore, the rapidly increasing use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and next-generation sequencing (NGS) along with the rising application of PCR and NGS in the human identification market is also positively influencing the market growth. This is also leading to the increasing focus of many industry players to launch new and innovative products in the market. For example, in June 2020, Azure Biosystems launched the Azure Cielo Real-time PCR instrument, a 96-well qPCR machine that upholds Azure’s brand promise: high performance, compact design, and intuitive workflow.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., QIAGEN, Promega Corporation, Agilent Technologies Inc. Illumina Inc., Bio-Rad Laboratories Inc., Eurofins Scientific, Hamilton Company, GENETEK Biopharma GmbH, Integenx Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.
