For instance, on 24 January 2023, Valid8 Financial, based in Seattle, announced launch of major new functionality in its financial investigation and audit platform that allows users to collect and aggregate data directly from over 30 client accounting systems as well as independently collected accounting evidence. It uses labelling techniques to categorize and filter accounts and transactions once it harvests and processes the data.

However, lack of proper guidelines and appropriate functioning of forensic accountants is hampering market revenue growth. This is further restricted by the challenge of facing different ethical conflicts, such as maintaining ethical standards and privacy while detecting and exposing financial fraud by forensic accountants. In addition, risk involved with working on high-stake cases is in the outcome of investigation which holds potential of legal and financial implications for clients and other parties involved in such cases. Moreover, inappropriate standardizing of forensic accounting and lack of a proper forensic accounting educational system are some of the major challenges faced by the market players. This is due to inadequate knowledge and professional skill sets among practitioners. These are some of the major factors restraining market revenue growth.
