The U.S. market for Forensic Technologies and Services is forecast to reach US$27.3 billion by 2024, supported by the fact that crime has and will continue to be an integral part of human society with the causes for the same being as diverse as poor parenting and instillation of moral values; unwillingness of immigrants to conform to American societal norms; rising incidence of psychological diseases that lead to anti-social behavior; haphazard urbanization, growing wealth gap, increase in poverty and structural flaws in the economy and society that creates fractures in ideologies and sense of social justice. Other major factors driving demand growth include alarming rise in premeditated cybercrime against the backdrop of growing asset value of digital information and the ensuing demand for computer forensics; growing smartphone sales, penetration of mobile internet, parallel increase in malware programs and demand for smartphone forensics; current era of slow growth, resulting increase in financial fraud and strengthening demand for forensic accounting services. Also as a fallout of overregulated corporate frameworks, financial frauds are rising. Fraudulent accounting practices give incorrect information about business growth thereby duping customers, defrauding suppliers and swindling investors. Financial forensics services, defined as criminal investigation services with financial auditing skills, will in the coming years witness strong growth.
