Report Highlights

The Global Electronic discovery market is valued at USD 7.93 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach a value of USD 18.48 billion by the end of 2022, growing at a projected CAGR of 15.14% during the forecast period of 2017 - 2022. Electronic discovery represents the process of classifying, preserving, gathering, scrapping, processing, swotting, and producing information in an electronic data form, to use as evidence in legal proceedings, compliance and governing matters, liquidation filings, and government investigations. Electronic discovery is regularly executed in the initial stages of a civil lawsuit procedure and may stay up to and/or through the trial. The electronic discovery market can be considered as a subdivision of the larger lawsuit support and legal sector market, which has undergone an intense change over the past decade, more so in the last five years. Along with improved search analytics capabilities, there has been a lot of improvement in the process and workflow of e-discovery.

In the competitive global market, companies are targeted by their competitors through industrial espionage, spreading disinformation, and leaking confidential information, to damage the company's brand value in the market. It would be an easy task for a well-financed and motivated group to attack the technical infrastructure of an adversary, given the clear vulnerabilities, low-risk and a large reward for these attacks. In this kind of a scenario, electronic discovery plays a pivotal role in easing the investigation process.

The global electronic discovery market is segmented by type (consultation, hosted review, data collection and processing, analytics, managed services), end-user industry (legal sector, government, BFSI, IT sector, energy utilities, transportation and logistics, defence, media and others), and by geography (North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa). This market is still untapped and fragmented in the APAC and African regions.
