COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic caused a severe impact on various economies all over the world. Several businesses were significantly devastated as a result of the outbreak of the COVID-19 infection. In addition, the governments of several countries were forced to impose lockdown in their nations. As a result, the manufacturing units of numerous goods were temporarily shut down. Moreover, these lockdowns also caused a major disruption in the supply chain of various goods. Further, the COVID-19 led the healthcare industry to a significant failure due to the shortage of beds and oxygen in hospitals.

Market Growth Factors

Integration of advanced technologies in law enforcement software

Law enforcement agencies are increasingly using advanced software like predictive analytics, digital and mobile forensics, as well as crime analytics, owing to the world's rapid digital transformation and the expectation that police officers would be able to work seamlessly between the office and the street. This opens up new possibilities for not only modernizing legacy systems like computer-assisted dispatch and record management, but also implementing new and advanced capabilities like forensic case management, predictive policing, body-worn cameras, digital & mobile forensics, crime analytics, and digital evidence management. To execute their daily operations, law enforcement agencies are depending more than ever on new technology such as financial investigations, cyber defense actions, big data & data analytics, and more.

An increasing number of ransomware attacks

Cyberattacks are becoming more common. Doxing and ransomware are a few of the major threats to a department's security and productivity. Ransomware encrypts the victim's sensitive data and holds it hostage, refusing to unblock it unless the user pays a certain amount of money. A significant number of law enforcement departments and government agencies have been harmed by these attacks, with many of them losing years of data and perhaps compromising crucial cases. Several law enforcement agencies comprise outdated systems, which can become ideal targets for these cyber-attacks.

Market Restraining Factors

Government compliances and regulations

Law enforcement authorities can use intelligence to solve crimes more effectively. Security, on the other hand, ensures that confidential data and information do not fall into the access of any unauthorized individual or organization. Surveillance by law enforcement agencies aids in gathering large amounts of information regarding a crime or criminal activity prior to its occurrence, which aids in the establishment of the number of crime occurrences. Because this software is used to manage personal information and assist law enforcement in the investigation, detection, or prosecution of criminal offenses, law enforcement software solution providers must comply with government codes and standards, and regulations to provide appropriate controls for protecting crucial information.
