The global short tandem repeats testing market is likely to grow at a rapid rate in the coming years. Fortune Business Insights in a report titled, “Short Tandem Repeats (STR) Testing Market Size, Share and Global Trend by Kits (Y- short tandem repeats test kits, Short tandem repeats test kit, Mini- short tandem repeats test kit), End Users (Forensic laboratories, Research institutes) and Geography Forecast till 2026,” states that the rise in the number of criminal activities combined with an increasing number of accidents, have resulted in memory loss. These are the two major reasons that are causing an increasing demand for short tandem repeats testing for identity detection of an individual.

The report suggests that short tandem repeat testing have several benefits that are completely safe and appropriate for human identification in cases of memory loss. The analysis involves extraction of nuclear DNA from cells in a sample and particular regions of the DNA are amplified with the help of the polymerase chain reaction technology. The report classifies the global short tandem repeats testing market on various terms. The three segments of global short tandem repeats testing market are kits, end user, and geography. Fortune Business Insights predicts that limitation of the haplotype frequency approach, unavailability of technology to distinguish between male relatives, and production of artifacts for amplification process will boost the global short tandem repeats market.
Y-chromosome Short Tandem Repeats Testing to Propel Growth of the Market
Y-chromosome short tandem repeats have been a significant topic of research in the market. However, application of the same has proved it to be very beneficial for a number of fields, namely, anthropology, genealogical studies, and paternity. One of the most useful applications of Y-chromosome short tandem repeats is their ability to detect and differentiate male DNA. Also, Y-chromosome short tandem repeats polymorphisms are useful in resolving lineages of males in forensics. Department of Forensic Science and DNA Services had analyzed mutation rate of 17 Y-chromosome short tandem repeats loci in April 2018. The study concluded that precise understanding of mutation rate at Y-chromosome short tandem repeats testing loci is needed for correctly understanding DNA typing results in paternity and forensics of males. This will in turn, trigger the growth of global short tandem repeats testing market.
Asia Pacific to Exhibit Higher Demand During the Forecast Period
Geographically, global short tandem repeats testing market is divided into Latin America, North America, the Middle East and Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Amongst these regions, North America gained the highest market share of the global short tandem repeats testing market in 2018. This has occurred due to the increasing demand for genetic counselling as well as an increasing investment in research and development sector. A renowned identification technology called 13-STR profile is already being used in the U.S. It is regularly utilized to match a suspect to a particular crime scene, to identify remains of a human being, and to exclude or establish paternity. According to the report, Asia Pacific is likely to generate a high CAGR because of an increasing funding from the government for research activities, adoption of genetic testing method, and a growing focus on research and development by prominent market players.
Some of the major companies that are present in the global short tandem repeats testing market are Thermo Fisher Scientific, Promega Corporation, AB Sciex, General Electric, Independent Forensics., Hy Laboratories Ltd., DNA Labs International, Inc., EasyDNA, DNA Forensics Laboratory Pvt. Ltd., Devyser, Illumina, Inc., and others.
