E-Discovery Market Report Scope & Overview:

The E-discovery Market Size was valued at USD 12.08 Billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 23.89 Billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period 2024-2031.

Electronic discovery, also known as eDiscovery, is an electronic process in which data/information is located, gathered, and created to use it as evidence in a court dispute. Digital material is highly suited to the inquiry since it can be searched effectively electronically, whereas traditional papers must be examined manually. Three types of suppliers serve the eDiscovery market: service providers, software vendors, and legal firms. Government agencies, companies (IT and legal teams), and regulators are the ultimate purchasers of eDiscovery solutions. Furthermore, legal firms and service providers provide services while also being software customers. Software suppliers cater to both service providers and purchasers of eDiscovery solutions.

The eDiscovery market aids in the reduction of complicated legal issues and the reduction of document review time. The eDiscovery process is primarily IT-centric, necessitating the identification, preservation, and collection of enormous volumes of structured and unstructured material in order for it to be sent in a compliant way to the other party for processing, review, and analysis. Clearly, eDiscovery demands a considerable quantity of storage capacity. eDiscovery needs extensive computational resources when advanced data review and analytics tools are employed to automatically extract legal insights from the ESI corpus.

In June 2022, TCDI, a major provider of legal services, software, and cybersecurity, said today that it has signed a formal deal to purchase Aon's eDiscovery practice. TCDI's existing eDiscovery products will be strengthened by the purchase, which will add expanded advising services such as information governance to its complete legal solutions. The acquisition will expand the TCDI technology package by including Aon's NOMAD mobile processing platform, PHI/PII detection, and post-data-breach support capabilities.

The breakout of covid 19 in early 2020 has altered global economic and corporate situations. E-discovery specialists are focused on making judgments to assist the processing, gathering, and evaluation of ESI while also considering business modifications. The most common subject of conversation is among legal, business, and IT experts in e-discovery solutions who execute and organize the work of data collection during this epidemic. The adoption of the WFH/Remote Work paradigm is also likely to be driven by an increase in demand for cloud-based business continuity products and services, including productivity suites, collaboration tools, MDM, cloud-based contact centers, and BI and analytics. By enforcing lockdown and social distance norms, digitization has stepped in to bridge the gaps.


The market is divided into two components: services and software. The software portion of the eDiscovery industry is the fastest growing. The eDiscovery software allows for the simple and efficient implementation of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM) model, which includes the identification, preservation, collection, processing, review, production, and presentation of relevant data during legal proceedings, resulting in reduced time, costs, and manual intervention.

Several companies in the market provide comprehensive GRC solutions that allow firms to swiftly react to changing regulatory, economic, and technological situations. These solutions assist key decision-makers and executives by providing important information needed to strike a balance between risk management, cost optimization, and innovation capability. Wide corporations have a large corporate network and several income streams. Small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) are rapidly embracing eDiscovery solutions to improve their governance, risk, and compliance processes. Vendors in the industry have been rolling out eDiscovery solutions with the purpose of catering to SMEs in order to assist SMEs to achieve various regulatory requirements. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are also under pressure to improve openness, visibility, and accountability in their business processes, which is enhancing their effectiveness of corporate governance.

The market is segmented into Healthcare and Life Sciences, Legal, Manufacturing, and Others. Due to the proliferation of data in different formats such as emails, applications, websites, videos, audios, and others, the market for forensic data gathering is predicted to develop at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The forensic data collection procedure entails gathering electronically stored information (ESI) from multiple data sources and transferring it to different data hosts and storage media. As a result, the forensic data collecting procedure will help to drive the total growth of the eDiscovery industry.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
