Market Analysis

Digital Forensics Market is expected to reach USD 24.3 Billion by 2023-2031, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 13.40%. The "digital forensics market" refers to the industry that offers services and tools to collect, preserve, analyze, and present digital evidence for legal and investigative purposes. Digital forensics is used to investigate various types of cybercrimes, including cyberbullying, financial fraud, data theft, and others. Digital forensics, or as we can say it, "digital forensic science," includes the investigation of materials detected in digital technologies and the recovery of these items when it is about computer crime. Digital forensics investigation is one of the leading fields developing from the original field of forensic science. The MNCs have a database about each individual, and that can be used as a service by a qualified digital forensics analyst to run background checks for various origins with this leading market technology.

The digital forensics market includes hardware, software, and services and is categorized into different types of devices, such as mobile devices, computers, and other electronic devices. To avoid data misuse and loss to the organization, it is necessary to monitor these devices and grant access only to specific people. These factors have fueled the need to invest in digital forensics hardware and software and receive consulting and services for organizations that do not have the capabilities to deploy these devices. The rise of proprietary devices and systems that provide a high level of security, combined with a lack of technical expertise to implement the solutions and higher capital investments, hinder market growth.

The reason for the growth of the digital forensics market is driven by the increasing number of cyberattacks and cybercrimes globally. The rise in cybercrime has led to an increase in the demand for digital forensics services, and this trend is expected to continue in the coming years. The increased use of electronic devices and cloud storage is also driving the growth of the digital forensics market in the future.
