Private Investigation - A market worth operating in?

Post by Newbie » Thu Aug 13, 2009 11:17 am

Hi everyone.

Following on from a previous Forensics thread, I wondered whether anyone knew of any research that looks at the size of the private investigation market? It seems like there's more potential in the US market than in Europe.
Although maybe not - I don't think any of the other major players (Faro, Z+F Leica etc) are operating strongly in this area.
There could be a nice little 'niche' that could be carved out here. Although I guess many of the private investigation firms are probably ex-police guys, one-man bands. Maybe the budgets aren't there for laser scanning.

Your thoughts on the above are very welcome :)

Just for clarification:

FARO is not providing any kind of contract service work - in no industry!

We ar convinced that there is no point at all in taking away potential projects from our customers.

Most of the private investigation people I know are getting regular work and are doing quite well, but unless they are getting some of the bigger jobs that could pay for a scan, I am not sure how they would use this.

Could you expand a bit on the kinds of activities you are thinking about in private investigation?
