In the recent past, rapid advancements in computer and mobile phones have caused the use of these devices in criminal activities. The increasing complexity of cybercrimes coupled with the fast evolving digital landscape today, creates a challenging and dynamic environment for investigators to operate in. Forensic science landscape is rapidly evolving, as digital and cyber-attacks become more frequent. Digital forensics encompasses recovery and investigation of electronic data and information found in digital devices. Highly specialized tools and techniques are used to trace the origin of cyber-attacks, information security breaches, industrial espionage, financial fraud and identity fraud among others illegal activities. Currently, digital forensics researchers and practitioners face major challenges from problems in computer science, including big data analysis, data visualizations, natural language processing and cyber-security. Moreover, digital forensic services providing companies have grown over the years increase in digitalization of data, growing number of mobile connections globally.
With advancements in traditional crime lab infrastructure, the adoption of digital forensics is growing, thereby driving the market for digital forensics over the forecast period. In addition to this some of the prominent drivers for digital forensics market are factors such as growing penetration in corporate sectors, rise in cyber-attacks and crime. Furthermore, rapid increase in the number of mobiles, computers, and other electronic devices, the demand for digital forensics expected to grow further significantly. On the other hand, factors such as lack of specialized skills as well as high level of encryption in new mobile applications may act as a major restraint for the digital forensics market.Digital forensics market can be segmented on the basis of type, services, vertical and regions.
