The global E-Discovery market, driven by the accelerating pace of digitization across industries, is on the cusp of substantial growth, with the market size estimated at USD 41.8 billion in 2021 and projected to maintain a robust CAGR of 5.5%. The markets expansion is fueled by various factors, including the increasing demand for proactive governance, the rise of content sources, and the growth of electronically stored information (ESI) due to the widespread adoption of cloud storage.
Digitalization and Globalization Driving Cross-Border E-Discovery Cases
In todays increasingly digital world, businesses across highly regulated sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, oil, gas, and energy are embracing e-discovery solutions. As a result, cross-border e-discovery cases have surged in response to business digitization and globalization. A staggering 91% of organizations are currently involved in digital initiatives, with 87% of senior company leaders ranking digitalization as a top priority. By 2022, it is anticipated that 65% of the global GDP will be digital, underscoring the growing importance of e-discovery solutions in managing digital information.
Rising Litigation Costs and Compliance Obligations Fuel Market Growth
The escalating cost of litigation and increased compliance obligations are key drivers propelling the e-discovery market forward. Enterprises of all sizes and industries are adopting e-discovery solutions to efficiently manage investigative concerns, sift through vast amounts of digital data, and ensure compliance with regulatory frameworks. Furthermore, the market benefits from the trend toward proactive governance through data analytics and the emergence of new content sources.
Social Media and Electronic Stored Information (ESI) Uptake
The markets growth is further catalyzed by the widespread use of social media, with 4.70 billion users worldwide as of July 2022. This surge in social media activity contributes to the expansion of electronically stored information (ESI), as approximately 90% of global enterprises opt for cloud storage, resulting in a 50% annual increase in ESI. Consequently, the demand for e-discovery solutions is expected to grow significantly in response to organizational interest in digital forensics.
Impact of COVID-19 on the E-Discovery Market
The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the adoption of e-discovery solutions, with an increasing number of users turning to these tools, even more so during the pandemic. As remote work and digitization became the norm, businesses sought cloud-based business continuity tools and services, further boosting the demand for e-discovery solutions. Pandemic-driven technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have also played a significant role in influencing commercial innovation initiatives.
Challenges and Opportunities
While the e-discovery market presents substantial growth prospects, it is not without challenges. The increasing frequency of cyberattacks and data theft incidents pose a significant threat to businesses, emphasizing the critical importance of cybersecurity in todays digital landscape.
