Digital Evidence Management Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2018-2028

Worldwide, law enforcement agencies have begun adopting body-worn cameras as a viable approach for enhancing evidentiary outcomes, increasing officer safety, and strengthening officer-community interactions. The cameras have also proven to be a crucial resource for problem-solving, broader law enforcement, and community involvement methods inside jurisdictions.

With millions of vehicles on the road every day, accidents are inevitable. Due to a spike in the frequency of accidents and car thefts, the government has mandated the installation of dashboard cameras, resulting in a considerable increase in dashcam usage over the past few years.

If hackers manage to gain access to the system, collected data may be compromised. Even a single piece of missing or manipulated data could provide difficulty for law enforcement. As data is created from many sources, such as e-mails, transactions, text messages, online accounts, photographs, and browsing histories, the digital evidence management system must be tamper-resistant.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

Cybercriminals have begun targeting employees who work from home to stop the deadly virus from spreading. Several government agencies have also warned about the Internet security risks related to virtual private networks (VPN), home Wi-Fi networks, and other hardware and software infrastructure installed at residences. Yet, digital forensics businesses play a crucial part in overcoming and resolving these difficulties by providing incident response and digital forensics solutions to fight against and prevent cyberattacks. In light of these elements, the digital evidence management market has witnessed long-term growth prospects due to the pandemic.

Market Growth Factors

Growing volume of digital evidence

Digital evidence is frequently used in crimes in the contemporary world. The amount of digital evidence has multiplied due to the widespread use of cameras, cell phones, laptops, tablets, and huge volumes of email, texts, social media posts, images, and other digital content. Systems for managing digital evidence have evolved into indispensable tools for forensic analysts, supporting the complete lifecycle of the evidence. Due to this increased volume of digital evidence, the digital evidence management market is predicted to witness a significant upsurge in the upcoming years.

Surge usage of emerging technologies in digital evidence management

One of the most common applications of artificial intelligence in video analysis is allocating a zone in the video frame in which any movement triggers an alert. This capability is utilized by retail loss prevention officers to draw attention to activity near high-priced products or to check archived film to establish when an item was removed from a shelf. When provided with descriptive parameters or an example, AI can locate things within a video frame. In a simpler application, AI can analyze a large volume of footage for the presence of a specific car model if it is provided with the vehicle's dimensions, shape, and even color.

Market Restraining Factors

Hesitancy over sharing digital evidence

Despite the fact that digital evidence management aids law enforcement agencies in conducting investigations more efficiently, there remains a considerable gap that has law enforcement agencies concerned. These gaps comprise data tampering and manipulation, which can still be overcome with the assistance of market offerings. Still, the issue of data interchange security has not yet been handled. Due to these concerns, the legal officer hesitates to release digital evidence, which may result in lower adoption of digital evidence management solutions, thereby hindering market expansion.

Component Outlook

Based on component, the digital evidence management market is segmented into hardware, software and services. The software segment held the highest revenue share in the digital evidence management market in 2021. Police officers or criminal investigators utilize digital evidence management software to organize digital photos, body camera footage, video surveillance footage, filmed interviews, voice recordings, and physical evidence & property.

Deployment Type Outlook

On the basis of deployment type, the digital evidence management market is divided into on-premise and cloud. The on-premise segment garnered a significant revenue share in the digital evidence management market in 2021. Users do not need an internet connection to access data, which is one of the key benefits of on-premises storage. On-premises servers are inaccessible outside the network since they do not save data online. On-premise digital evidence management firms do not need to request an upgrade to their storage plan or the addition of new capabilities from a cloud storage provider; rather, they can perform the changes themselves.

End User Outlook

By end user, the digital evidence management market is classified into law enforcement agencies and criminal justice agencies. In 2021, the law enforcement agencies segment registered the maximum revenue share in the digital evidence management market. Public safety & law enforcement agencies can use digital evidence management solutions to manage, store, analyze, and exchange a growing amount of digital evidence. It can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Many sources may provide the evidence, including dashcams, body-worn cameras, CCTV cameras, and phone records. The system keeps the degree of compliance at its highest.
