Digital Forensics Market Brief Overview

Digital forensics is a branch of forensics where recovered evidence found in computers, tablets, smartphones, cloud services, etc. Digital forensic research helps stop cyber-crimes or cyber-attacks and allows organizations to carry out certain miscellaneous operations. The key method followed to perform a forensic would be the collection, examination, and preservation of the data. Digital forensics helps to save both credibility and money.

Global digital forensics market witnessed a market value of USD 11.2 billion in 2022 and is estimated to reach USD 23.4 billion in 2032, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.6% between 2023 and 2032.

Digital Forensics Market Insights

Companies across the globe are working on automating data. The sharing in an internal and external world of this vast amount of data has made businesses vulnerable to cybercrime. Cyber-attacks have a detrimental impact on businesses in terms of data theft and loss of sales and create a dent on the brand and credibility. Enterprises' rising vulnerability to cyber-attacks has led to high demand for digital forensics tools and services. To counter those cyber-attacks, different universities and government facilities emphasize holding seminars to demonstrate digital forensics and methods for investigating cybercrime.

Increasing usage of IoT devices

IoT refers to interconnected devices that communicate and interact with each other all the time. In many application areas, the widespread use of IoT devices is observed, such as smart city programs, smart transportation, vehicle communication, and autonomous vehicles, smart grids, and smart homes. The growing computing power of IoT system processors has created a connected environment and simplified tasks which have been difficult to perform by conventional means. IoT computers are a good target for cybercriminals. Adopting the best-in-class digital forensic tools and facilities that will assist in retrieving the data loss in an unexpected incident is important for companies and organizations. The growing use of IoT devices is expected to increase demand for digital forensic solutions, and services are expected to propel the global digital forensics industry.

Rising usage of Crypto Currencies

Cryptography guarantees the confidentiality, honesty, non-repudiation, and authentication of data exchanged between 2 parties. However, even cases of fraud are rising with the crypto-currency rise. Cryptocurrencies are subject to cyber-attacks on account of financial profits, geographic rivalry, interpersonal rivalry, and loss of credibility. The artifacts can be difficult to detect when a crypto-currency fraud occurs. It will take an effective digital forensic solution to retrieve the vital data that could have been lost during the storage or trading of crypto currency. Therefore, crypto currency is one of the prime places where cybercriminals can explore, which in turn is anticipated to spark the need for digital forensics.

However, substantial costs incurred in the implementation and licensing of digital forensics solutions and services are expected to pose a market growth challenges. Additionally, the growing use of proprietary operating systems and the high encryption level used in the latest mobile apps are other factors that hinder the market growth. It is further anticipated that the lack of technical expertise among skilled investigators and the lack of planning and readiness to implement enterprise-wide digital forensic technologies and services would affect market growth. In addition, the lack of cloud forensic tools available can affect market growth for investigating cloud-based frauds.
