Digital Forensics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2021

The global market for digital forensics has been covered under the scope of this report. Digital forensics is a process of recovery and interpretation of data found in digital devices for use in a court of law and is mostly related to computer crime. Digital forensic investigation comprises three stages, which includes acquisition of exhibits, investigation, and reporting. Law enforcement agencies and various stakeholders are using digital forensics to keep up with the increasing technological innovations and commercialization.

The major driving factors of the global digital forensics market are increasing threats from crime and terrorist attacks. Moreover, rising security concern across different industries along with rapid economic growth in emerging markets are expected to fuel the growth of global digital forensics market. Due to rapid development in technology, the number of computer, mobiles, and other electronic devices is anticipated to grow exponentially, which in turn is expected to drive the growth of the market for digital forensics during the forecast period from 2015 to 2021. Furthermore, with rapid innovation in digital forensic research in the future, digital forensic tools would find wide range of applications in health care, education, transport, defense and aerospace, and other application areas. With continuous improvements in existing technologies, the efficiency of forensic tools in terms of detecting, recording, and retrieving minute traces is expected to increase. However, increased utilization of cloud based applications and persistent threat of government snooping are some of the major factors hindering the growth of the market for digital forensics. Due to increasing security concerns across different verticals, such as law enforcement, defense, banking, health care, information technology, education, and logistics, among others, the market for digital forensics is witnessing substantial growth currently.

The global digital forensics market, by types is divided broadly into five major segments into: computer forensics, network forensics, cloud forensics, mobile device forensics, database forensics and others. Computer forensics held the largest share of global digital forensics market in 2014. There has been a surge in dependence on computers and Internet among both government and corporate organizations which have significantly resulted in increase in cyber crimes and cyber frauds. Thus computer forensic tools are widely used in both private investigation and criminal law, in order to analyze, examine, and recover data or evidence that is related to computer crime. 

The global digital forensics market by end users industry is bifurcated into seven segments: law enforcement, healthcare, education, banking, financial services and insurance, information technology, transportation and logistics, defense and aerospace. Law enforcement segment contributed to the largest market share in 2014, primarily due to increasing implementation of digital forensics in collecting, analyzing and presenting data as evidences in a court of law. Moreover, terrorism and security threats are prevented on the basis of digital traces and thus digital forensics is becoming a vital tool for defense and law enforcement among others.

The global digital forensics market has been segmented broadly into four regions: North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and RoW (Rest of the World). In terms of revenue, North America acquired the largest share of the market in 2014 accounting for approximately 53% of the market share. Rise in the demand for digital forensics in North America can be attributed to increased acceptance of forensic tools among different industries in this region. Moreover, state police departments and FBI have been using this technology to prevent illegal activities in different parts of the U.S. and Canada among others.

Some of the leading players in the digital forensics market are Guidance Software, Inc. (U.S.), LogRythm, Inc. (U.S.), AccessData Group, Inc. (U.S.), Paraben Corporation (U.S.), Binary Intelligence (U.S), Fireeye Inc. (U.S.), Digital Detectives (U.S.), ASR Data (U.S.), Lancope, Inc. (U.S.) and Global Digital Forensics (U.S.).

Digital forensics is mostly used to collect, identify, extract and analyze evidence from computers, hard disks, mobiles, laptops and other digital devices. This technology is implemented in civil and criminal court cases along with different other private organizations for internal investigations. Moreover, digital forensics has become a key asset in addressing employee theft, particularly in banking, defense, and IT industries. In addition, these devices are used for mobile data recovery and crimes related to cloud computing. With the continuous advancements in forensic technology, investigators are able to collect and analyze clear and accurate data across multiple devices. The global digital forensics market has been segmented on the basis of types and industry uses. A cross sectional study of the global digital forensics market across four major geographical segments has also been covered under the purview of the report.

 

Growing cyber crimes coupled with rising safety concern have led to a rise in the implementation of digital forensic tools in various industries. Digital forensic technology plays an integral role in preventing internet related crimes and misuse of company data. Moreover, cyber crime is accelerating at an alarming rate and digital forensics acts as an essential element that has the power to encumber the progress of such criminals. Due to increasing security concerns across different verticals, such as law enforcement, defense, banking, health care, information technology, education, and logistics, among others, the market for digital forensics is witnessing substantial growth currently. In addition, due to rapid advancements in forensic technology, such as the ability to recover complex data from electronic devices, fingerprint recovery from metals, and DNA profiling, prices of forensic tools have reduced, which in turn has increased the affordability of forensic applications along with their market penetration. Considering all these factors, the global digital forensics market is expected to grow at a potential rate during the forecast period from 2015 to 2021. 

 

In the near future, with developments in digital forensic research, digital forensic tools would be further used in health care, education, transport, and other application areas. Moreover, forensic tools would find potential applications in mobile data recovery and crimes related to cloud computing. This would lead to more efficient and better coordinated detection, analysis, and presentation of data in courts of law. In order to cater to the needs of digital forensics, companies are coming up with new innovative products that can effectively collect, preserve, analyze, and present evidence obtained from digital sources. Furthermore, new players with advanced systems that come with better reliability and accuracy are likely to emerge in the market, in order to meet the challenging technical aspects along with judicial and legal issues. However, rising complexity of mobile devices and increasing snooping activities by government are some of major factors inhibiting the growth of the global market for global digital forensics.
