According To This New Report, eDiscovery Market Expected to Nearly Triple in Five Years: eDiscovery Trends

According to a new market research report, the eDiscovery market is estimated to grow from $7.89 Billion (US) in 2016 to $22.62 Billion by 2021, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 23.4% from 2016 to 2021.

The report titled E-Discovery Market by Solution (Legal Hold, Early Case Assessment, Data Processing, Data Production), Service (Consulting, Implementation, Training & Support, Managed), Deployment Type (Cloud, On-premises), and Vertical – Global Forecast to 2021 is published by MarketsandMarkets (who apparently did not have a title size limit when determining the report title).

Here are a couple of notable trends in the report over the forecast period with respect to TAR and cloud adoption:

  • TAR Adoption: Technology assisted review and data production is expected to show significant adoption rate in the E-Discovery Market. Technology assisted review and data production is “gaining traction among E-Discovery solutions as these solutions empower organizations by reducing risk and saving the time and money spent on managing & reviewing large sets of documents effectively and efficiently”.
  • Managed Services Growth: The managed services segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR during the forecast period from 2016 to 2021, owing to organizations’ focus on decreasing costs associated with E-Discovery document storage infrastructure maintenance. With the help of managed services, users become free from establishing and maintaining infrastructure, uncertainty over compliance adherence, and developing scalable and capable technologies for E-Discovery use, owing to which, this service type has the highest adoption rate.
  • Cloud Deployment: The cloud deployment type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period; the cloud deployment type is also projected to witness the highest demand due to increased cost reduction as compared to on-premises solution deployment, as cloud E-Discovery solutions help customers to maintain a conservative legal department budget by slashing costs associated with data storage infrastructure maintenance.

As noted in the report description, the ecosystem of the E-Discovery market consists of on-premises solution providers such as IBM Corporation, FTI Technology LLC, kCura LLC, and ZyLAB; cloud solution providers such as cicayda,LLC, CloudNine, Logikcull, and Lexbe; and service providers such as Ernst & Young Global Limited, Advanced Discovery, D4 LLC, and Navigant Consulting, Inc. Stakeholders of the market include litigation service providers, legal analytics vendors & consultants, and law firms.
