The Global Market for Digital Evidence Management is Estimated to Reach a Market Value of USD 8.58 billion by 2024 registering a 13.19% CAGR During the Forecast Period 2019 - 2024. The market is growing due to the rising adoption of digital technology by government and law enforcement agencies to manage digital evidence efficiently. An increasing rate of cybercrimes is another major factor driving the demand for digital evidence management solutions. The improving efficiency of investigation processes is another factor that drives the adoption of digital evidence management solutions by law enforcement authorities.
Digital evidence is a piece of information stored electronically, that is valuable for investigation purpose, which can be acquired mostly from computers, mobile devices, and the Internet. Digital evidence management is the automated process of collecting, storing, securing and disseminating evidence that may be gathered digitally from electronic documents, emails, text messages, transactions, mobile phone images and videos from crime scenes, body worn camera videos, CCTV footages, automated number plate recognition systems, audio recordings, browsing histories, social media and various other sources. The utilization of digital evidence management solutions has increased in recent years owing to the rising crimes in various countries.
The justice and public safety community in nearly every country recognize the compelling requirement for managing digital evidence procured in terms of storing, transcribing, and securing the considerable amount data gathered from the wide range of devices. Moreover, another important challenge that law enforcement agencies face is the authenticity of the digital evidence that may be dismissed in the court during any case trial. Public prosecutors are responsible for proving that the evidence is authentic and has not been tampered with. Digital evidence management solutions gradually resolve these challenges by securely collecting, storing, processing, retrieving, and presenting digital evidence for investigations. Furthermore, digital evidence management systems build a central repository of digital information and make it accessible through different platforms across global locations. Digital evidence management solutions speed up the editing and releasing of files for prosecutors to speed up the judicial process.
Law enforcement agencies such as the Automated Regional Justice Information System (ARJIS), the San Diego Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), London Metropolitan Police, The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) and various other police forces are leading the way by adopting digital evidence management solutions, thereby promoting market growth. Insurance enterprises are also adopting digital evidence management solutions for the verification of insurance claims in case of fire and road accidents. Further, government initiatives and support to enforce national security by adopting these solutions also foster market growth. For instance, in the year 2018, the Indian government passed an order under Information Technology Act allowing agencies such as Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), National Investigation Agency (NIA), and others to intercept, monitor, and decrypt digital information.
However, the lack of skilled professional staff and complexities associated with cyber crimes are some of the major challenges that digital evidence management players are expected to face in the coming years.
