The Global Forensic Swab Market is expected to register 5.8% CAGR and is anticipated to reach USD 49.09 Million by 2023. Forensic swabs are extensively used by forensic scientists and crime scene investigators for collecting a wide range of evidence-samples such as blood, saliva, and DNA. These samples are analyzed in the laboratory for desired results. Gathering biological samples for successive DNA analysis is one of the major applications for forensic swabs. Rising criminal activities, increasing adoption of DNA forensics, growing forensic biotechnology sector, and favorable government support are some of the major factors driving the market growth during the forecast period. However, factors such as the high price of DNA free forensic swabs and irregular supply of new products in the market are projected to restrain the market growth. However, the growing rate of chronic and infectious diseases, increased research and development investment (R&D), and technological advancements are expected to boost the market growth.


Market Dynamics


The past few years, there has been an increase in criminal activities and reported crimes has increased. According to crime statistics published by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, approximately 17,250 murders were estimated to be reported within the US in 2016. The government support for forensics-related activities is one of the major factors driving the global forensic swab market. The judicial framework of various countries has realized the importance of forensics. Currently, forensics is being utilized as toxicology forensics, DNA forensics, and others for investigating criminal offenses. According to a report on forensic science published by the National Criminal Justice Reference Service, the National Institute of Justice received a funding of USD 125 million through the Department of Justice Appropriations Act in 2017 for boosting DNA and other related forensic programs and activities and sexual assault forensic exams.

    The Global Forensic Swab Market is characterized by the presence of many global, regional, and local vendors. The market is competitive with all the players competing to gain a presence in the market. Intense competition, rapid advances in technology, frequent changes in government policies, and regulations are key factors that confront the market growth. The manufacturers compete based on cost, quality, and reliability. It is decisive for manufacturers to provide cost-efficient and high-quality products to survive and succeed in an intensely competitive market environment.


    The growth of market players is dependent on market conditions, government support, and industry development. Thus, manufacturers should focus on expanding geographically and improving their products. They primarily focus on the development of novel products.
