The global forensic imaging market size was valued at USD 62.35 million in 2020 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 10.3% during the forecast period, 2021–2028. The growth of the market is attributed to the rising demand for virtual or virtopsy autopsy as compared to traditional autopsy.


Forensic Imageing Market Key Takeaways

The forensic imaging is a technique that performs the autopsy of the body without the need for opening or incision to the body. It works on the principle of capturing images with the help of advanced technological tools such as X-ray, CT, MRI, as well as ultrasound. This technique is also called as virtopsy or virtual imaging. The use of technological advanced imaging techniques such as ultrasound, MRI, CT-scan, and X-ray has increased the efficiency of the forensic imaging as well as has reduced the use of conventional autopsy methods. The introduction of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the virtual imaging techniques has further improved its application such as identification of dead person along with matching with body parts. The virtual autopsy is a preferred autopsy technique as it has several advantages such as quick results, non-invasive methods, and it hold religious sentiments of the population. As the several religions do not accept the traditional autopsy techniques among Muslims, Hindus, Jews, this increases the demand for virtual autopsy.

The rise in criminal activities worldwide as well as inadequate number of medical examiner offices, and growing advancements in technologies are boosting the demand for forensic imaging. Moreover, the images produced by the virtual autopsy is easy to analysis as compared to the traditional techniques which are disturbing images for the normal person. The use of 3D imaging has improved the quality of images and increases the palatability of the images for the targeted person. Virtobot, is a robotic device with CT, Angiography, MRI, and navigation systems is proven to be highly advanced and high quality product in the field of forensic imaging.

Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities

  • Rising demand for advanced autopsy process as well as encouragement for the adoption of the techniques by the government for forensic studies are driving the market growth.
  • Increasing awareness for the importance of virtual autopsy against the conventional autopsy methods is boosting the market growth.
  • Rapid development of high quality technologies for forensic studies as the crimes are increasingly penetrating across various fields. This is expected to push the market expansion in the coming future.
  • Requirement of massive funds for the techniques installation and high expensive using the methods are major restraints to the market expansion.
  • Wide number of application and increasing awareness of the techniques among a large number of the global population are offering huge growth opportunities for the market growth.

Market Segment Insights

X-ray segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace

Based on modality, the global forensic imaging market is divided into MRI, CT, X-ray, and ultrasound. The X-ray segment is expected to grow at a rapid pace during the projected period owing to the high use in virtual imaging techniques. The X-ray scans primarily indicates air embolism, gunshots, and motor crash deaths. In both developing and underdeveloped countries, x-ray is highly used as it is widely available along with ease of accessibility. However, in the developed countries, the preference is shifting to MRI and CT scan.

The CT segment is anticipated to grow at substantial rate in the coming years owing to high accuracy and fast response time. The CT scan locates the fractures or lesion in the complicated regions of the body such as neck, face, spine, and pelvis of the dead body. Furthermore, CT scan has more benefits such as cheap for use and produces results in less time. Meanwhile, the MRI segment is also a fast growing segment as it is used to detect the soft tissue damage or neurological images of brain and spine as well. Certain disadvantages associated with MRI are it is costly, complex to use, and can only scan one part at a time which increases the time of the procedure.


Forensic Imageing Market By Modality

Death investigation segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR

On the basis of applications, the market is bifurcated into death investigations and clinical studies. The death investigation segment is projected to expand at a considerable CAGR during the forecast period owing to rising number of murder cases, criminal activities, suicides, and accidents. Additionally, the evidence to be provided in front of the court needs to be evident, which increases the role of death investigation through forensic imaging.

Meanwhile, the clinical studies segment is anticipated to grow at a rapid pace in the coming years owing to the rising number of voluntary donors of body after death and outbreaks of deadly disease. The COVID-19 outbreak has boosted the segment as the traditional autopsy of the COVID-19 body is considered to be unsafe. This increased the use of forensic imaging in the segment.


Forensic Imageing Market By Applications

Forensic institutions segment is expected to propel at a significant rate

On the basis of end-users, the global forensic imaging market is segregated into forensic institutes, hospitals, and others. The forensic institutions segment is expected to propel at a significant rate during the projected period owing to the high research activities in the field. The application of modern technologies in forensic imaging has propelled the installation of imaging tools in the institutions.

The hospitals segment is anticipated to show lucrative growth in the near future due to the high use of these techniques in hospitals. Increasing number of patients in the hospitals as well as well-equipped premises such as technical staff, floor space, radiologist, capital, and pathologist. The reduction in time of transfer of the body from hospitals to forensic institutes is also a key factor for surge in adoption of hospitals for autopsies in the same premises.

Europe is anticipated to constitute a key market share

In terms of regions, the market is classified as Asia Pacific, North America, Latin America, Europe, and Middle East & Africa. Europe is anticipated to constitute a key market share during the forecast period owing to the early adoption of forensics in the region as well as use of radiology imaging. The steps taken to increase the awareness of the population such as events, conferences, seminars, and workshops have proven to be highly effective for the market growth in the region. For example, in 2019 International Society of Forensic Radiology and Imaging organized annual meeting in Germany. The people from all over the world attended this meeting to gain knowledge and share it with others to increase awareness of forensic imaging.

North America, on the other hand, is projected to witness a remarkable surge of revenue share of the market in the region due to extensive research activities in the region and presence of high quality experts of the field. The government favorable approach towards the market and policies to increase the number of examiner centers in the region are major factor contributing for fast pace growth of the regional market.

The Asia Pacific market, however, is expected to constitute a significant market share during the projected period as the huge population in the region increases the cases of autopsy requirement as well as presence of highly advanced models of forensic imaging methods in countries such as China, Japan, Australia, and Thailand.
