    • The rest of the world (ROW) outside of the U.S. constitutes approximately 35% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number increasing to approximately 40% by 2022.

    Government and Non-Government Market Size

    • Governmental and Regulatory spending on eDiscovery (audits, investigations, and litigation) constitutes approximately 50% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number decreasing to approximately 45% by 2022.
    • Non-Governmental and Regulatory spending on eDiscovery (audits, investigations, and litigation) constitutes approximately 50% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number increasing to approximately 55% by 2022.

    Estimated Spending By Task

    • Spending on review-related software and services constitutes approximately 71% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number decreasing to approximately 66% by 2022.
    • Spending on processing-related software and services constitutes approximately 19% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number remaining steady at 19% through 2022
    • Spending on collection-related software and services constitutes approximately 10% of worldwide eDiscovery software and services spending in 2017, with that number increasing to approximately 15% by 2022.

    Estimated Deliverer of eDiscovery-Centric Services

    • Corporations and Governments deliver approximately 71% of worldwide eDiscovery-centric services in 2017, with that number increasing to approximately 76% by 2022.
    • Law Firms deliver approximately 23% of worldwide eDiscovery-centric services in 2017, with that number decreasing to approximately 13% by 2022.

    Lagniappe: Example Market Share Estimations for Two Hypothetical eDiscovery Providers

    • An eDiscovery software provider with approximately $450 million in direct revenue would represent approximately 16.41% of eDiscovery software market spend in 2017. This would be revenue paid directly to the eDiscovery provider, not the amount of revenue generated through additional resell or provision of services by technology and resell partners.
    • An eDiscovery software provider with approximately $30 million in direct revenue would represent approximately 1.09% of eDiscovery software market spend in 2017. This would be revenue paid directly to the eDiscovery provider, not the amount of revenue generated through additional resell or provision of services by technology and resell partners.
