E-discovery is the procedure of detecting, gathering, and presenting digital information to other parties in litigation. This process is based on the EDRM, or electronic discovery reference model, which takes into account various steps such as information identification, data preservation, data collection, review analysis, and production. Demand for cloud-based E-discovery software and services is growing as more businesses adopt cloud computing technologies.

The growing volume of big data in enterprises is propelling the global E-discovery market forward. Also, the introduction of government regulation to support E-discovery process implementation is expected to increase the uptake of E-discovery software and services over the forecast period. However, lack of awareness and the high initial cost is likely to stymie the E-discovery market's growth.
