Market Overview

Forensic swabs are widely used by crime scene investigators and forensic scientist for collecting wide range of the evidence-samples such as saliva, blood, and DNA. The samples are analysed in the research laboratory for the desired results. Gathering the biological samples for consecutive DNA analysis is the major applications for the forensic swabs. Increasing criminal activities, growing adoption of the DNA forensics, rising forensic biotech sector, and favourable government support are the major factors propelling the market growth over the forecast period.
However, aspects such as high price of the DNA free forensic swabs and the irregular supply of the new products in market are predictable to restrain market growth. Though, the rising rate of infectious and chronic diseases, investment (R&D), and tech advancements are likely to boost market growth.

Segment Overview

Past few years have experienced an increase in reported crimes and criminal activities. According to the crime statistics published by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), about 17,250 murders were projected to be stated within the U.S. in 2016. Government support for the forensics-related activities is another one of the key factors driving global forensic swab market. The legal framework of numerous countries has realized importance of the forensics.
Presently, forensics is being applied as DNA forensics, toxicology forensics, and others for inspecting criminal offenses. As per the report on forensic science issued by National Criminal Justice Reference Service (NCJRS), National Institute of Justice received funding of USD 125 million over Department of Justice Appropriations Act (DJAA) in 2017 for increasing DNA and other associated forensic programs and the activities and the sexual assault forensic exams.

Regional Overview

The North America accounts for largest regional market owed to growing number of the forensic labs, rising crime cases, and numerous blood sampling. According to historical numbers issued by the NCJRS in July 2014, National DNA Index System (NDIS) enclosed 571,000 forensic profiles. Moreover, an increase in number of the forensic laboratories and rise in number of microbiological tests coupled with rising usage in hospitals support swab market in the region.

Europe accounted for second-largest market share in 2019 owing to the growing research labs, number of hospitals, and increasing accidental cases, this is likely to rise the demand for the swabs in region during forecast period.
Asia-Pacific is anticipated to hold third-largest market share over the forecast period owed to the growing prevalence of numerous diseases, demand for the blood sampling, and growing number of the forensic labs. On other hand, the Middle East and Africa is likely to observe slow growth rate due to less contact to forensic labs and also lack of awareness in the region
