DNA forensics is a branch of science dealing with the use of genetic material for investigation in criminal & civil cases, human identification, and health care research. Genetic material is primarily recovered from sources such as tissues, bones, blood, saliva, hair, teeth, and semen.
Analysis of DNA is used to identify the genomic distinction of an individual.

DNA consists of two types variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs) and short tandem repeats (STRs) of repetitive sequences. Regions with a high number of short tandem repeats (STRs) are comparatively easy to analyze than those with variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs).
The number of repeats at the loci varies from person to person, which helps identify their unique profile statistically.

Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphism (RFLP) was the first method used for DNA forensic analysis. It requires a substantially larger quantity of DNA for analysis, due to which its use has comparatively reduced and been replaced with another new technology.
The polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technology is substantially used for the purpose of DNA forensic analysis as it offers millions of copies of DNA obtained through the amplification process. Due to its low cost and high output, PCR is widely used in the Human Genome Project.
Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis is another technique employed to analyze DNA samples which uses mtDNA instead of nuclear DNA. However, it is slow and highly expensive.
The DNA forensic market is projected to expand substantially due to the rising security concerns at national & international borders and ports; increasing number of crimes such as sexual assault, terrorist attacks, kidnapping, gun violence, and homicides; and the relatively limited number of available industry players to cater to the growing consumer demand. Thus, the DNA forensic market falls under the pull type with high demand for the products and limited manufacturers of the technology.
Currently, the DNA forensic market is experiencing heavy research and development with substantial new product introduction. This encourages manufacturers to cater to the increasing customer demand with efficient and effective modality.
