According to Stratistics MRC, the Global eDiscovery Market is accounted for $13.86 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $58.72 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 27.2% during the forecast period. Electronic discovery, or eDiscovery, refers to discovery in which the information sought is in electronic format. eDiscovery is defined as a set of methods for locating, safeguarding, collecting, analysing, reviewing, and creating electronically stored data (ESI). It is commonly utilised in civil or criminal litigation proceedings, as well as in government investigations. Emails, articles, photos, spreadsheets, voice recordings, internet outlets, computer apps, and other types of ESI are frequently employed as eDiscovery resources.
According to the Annual Benchmarking Study of Electronic Discovery Practices, carried out by Deloitte, 73% of the respondents felt more confident in their ability to manage eDiscovery in their cases.
Preservation of metadata from electronic documents
The goal of preservation metadata is to promote and facilitate the long-term retention of digital material. It gives context information about a digital object's history, legitimacy, and environment. Preservation metadata is a sort of metadata that attempts to ensure continuing access to a digital property by giving contextual information, usage details, and rights. As an increasing part of the world's information output migrates from analogue to digital form, preservation metadata is a key component of most digital preservation techniques, including digital curation, eDiscovery, digital collections management, and long-term digital information preservation. It is an important aspect of the data lifecycle since it aids in documenting the validity of a digital object while ensuring cross-format usability.
Increasing chances of cyber attacks and data theft
One of the most critical criteria for smooth corporate operations is cybersecurity. There has been a significant increase in the frequency of data breaches and cyber attacks in recent years-the number of cyber attacks surged by 600% between 2016 and 2017. Data security is becoming increasingly important, particularly for governments that are vulnerable to cyber attacks. And, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic's increased digitalization, security experts have warned that cyber attacks will only become more common. Between 2020 and 2021, 15 and 17 training programmes were held, with 708 and 4,801 participants, respectively. Microsoft, led by Satya Nadella, announced that the attack has been patched and mitigated on 92% of the servers.
Rise in the use of smart devices and cloud based services
Smart phones and mobile devices have taken over everyone's lives. According to smart phone usage estimates, around 3.2 billion people worldwide use smart phones, while more than 5 billion people own mobile devices. As a result, the number of people who utilise the internet has skyrocketed. As a result, there is a significant demand for smart device users and cloud-based services. Because of cloud-based services, implementation time is decreased, safe data is easy to transfer, a high volume of data is shared in a short period of time, rapid scaling demand increases, infrastructure, energy, and facility expenses are lowered, which increases the opportunities for ediscovery market.
High cost of installation and maintenance
High initial cost of installation and maintenance of eDiscovery data are the prime factors restraining the market growth. Budgets are being cut across the board, despite the growing need for eDiscovery in the age of big data. E-discovery indeed takes less time than physically gathering communications, but it still does take time and the use of e-discovery can be expensive because most companies fail to implement retention policies that reduce the amount of data E-discovery collection, review and production is expensive.
The COVID-19 epidemic has considerably accelerated the expansion of the eDiscovery market. The market is predicted to grow 1.5X between 2020 and 2022 due to rising data volumes and cloud-based solution adoption. The rise in demand for internet network connectivity and online purchasing of critical items has accelerated progress in digital legal matters. COVID-19 has increased the adoption of digital platforms. This has boosted the use of automation, connection intelligence, and the requirement for eDiscovery. The eDiscovery market is predicted to recover and grow significantly throughout the forecast period, thanks to strong demand in the BFSI, retail, IT, and healthcare sectors.
The large enterprises segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The large enterprises segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth, as they have a broad corporate network and numerous sources of income. Large corporations are eager to invest in cutting-edge technology to improve the efficiency of their operations. As a result, they generate a massive amount of data. Because their litigation processes are more involved than those of Small and Medium Enterprises, large enterprises dominate the e-discovery market (SMEs). Due to increased competitiveness, the consistent need for e-discovery solutions among big corporations, and other reasons, the market is predicted to rise rapidly over the forecast period.
The Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The Banking, financial services, and insurance (BFSI) segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period, as this sector is increasingly adopting newer technologies and digital channels. As a regulated industry, BFSI requires rapid access to numerous information, including attachments, emails, and instant communications. As a result, governments around the world are increasingly enforcing legislation requiring the retention of all outward, incoming, and internal electronic communications, including emails and instant messaging. This creates a significant demand for diverse solutions throughout the BFSI vertical, as these solutions aid in the discovery and restoration of crucial data before the deadline.
