The global eDiscovery market grew at a CAGR of around 11% during 2014-2019. eDiscovery refers to the process of recognizing, collecting and presenting electronically stored information (ESI) used for legal investigations. It consists of investigating emails, documents, presentations, databases, voicemails, social media data and audio and video files. It also includes raw data and metadata that forensic investigators review to trace hidden evidence. This evidence is further extracted and analyzed using various cyber-forensic procedures and converted to digital formats to be presented into the court. They aid in identifying patterns and conducting analytical research that is used for investigating legal, constitutional, political and privacy issues.
Rapid digitization, along with the increasing utilization of the Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled devices, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Widespread adoption of IoT and cloud computing systems has significantly enhanced the generation of digital data, thereby increasing the demand for eDiscovery solutions for accessing and recovering traces of information. Furthermore, extensive utilization of these systems for enforcing compliance, translation and data security by various government organizations is also providing a boost to the market growth. Litigations are now primarily based on high volumes of electronic data that are retrieved using eDiscovery solutions. The enhanced focus of legal and government organizations to streamline their operations and minimize operational costs by adopting advanced technologies is positively impacting the market growth. Other factors, including an increasing amount of electronically stored information and rising instances of felonies, such as money laundering and tax fraud, are expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global eDiscovery market to continue its strong growth during the next five years.
