Global Digital Forensics Market: Snapshot
Digital forensic involves integrating computer science with laws that are needed to investigate crime. It involves complete recovery and then interpretation of data present in digital devices to be presented in law courts and mostly involves cyber crime. Investigation in digital forensics is carried out in three stages which includes exhibit acquisition, investigation and analysis along with reporting of crime.
Forensic technology has become an important component of financial investigations which includes contentious, non-contentious, and fraud-related litigation. Forensic technology experts use various forensic technology tools to gather evidence and make a strong case against criminals.
The global digital forensics market stood at a valuation of US$2.87 bn in 2016 and is estimated to be worth US$6.65 bn by 2025, rising at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2017 and 2025.
Today, cyber criminals are causing unprecedented damage using simple IT tools or cloud services. They leak confidential consumer information or valuable business information by hacking personal files of individuals or organizations that leads to disruption in functioning. This requires evidence-based investigation for information recovery, thereby driving the digital forensics market.
Moreover, the increasing trend of cloud-based solutions and Internet of Things technology has increased the risk of malware and virus, further putting confidential information at risk acting as another key driver for this market. The use of multiple channels leading to the growth of sophisticated crime, especially for hacking organizational information that is related to IT applications has further pushed the growth of this market.
However, rising use of mobile devices and their growing complexities are posing a challenge to the growth of this market. This is because retrieving information from certain devices is a herculean task, which makes it difficult to reach to the real culprit in case of cybercrimes.
Governments have also raised concerns regarding the accessibility of mobile platforms of certain companies further posing a challenge to the market’s growth. Nevertheless, the increasing relevance of digital evidence to expose criminals is expected to extend growth opportunities to the digital forensics market.
