The global supply chain management market size was valued at USD 23.58 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 26.25 billion in 2024 to USD 63.77 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.7% during the forecast period.


SCM is the process of implementing, planning, and controlling a supply chain's operations to fulfill customer requirements. SCM includes the process that transforms raw materials into final products and encompasses a trading partner community engaged in satisfying end customers.


Pandemic-related lockdowns, labor shortages, geopolitics, and even weather significantly impacted the global supply chain, leading to supply chain bottlenecks, increasing costs, and disruption. In response, the organization started adopting different strategies, such as shoring vendors and vertically integrated supply chains. Due to this, the market witnessed growth among organizations.


However, the COVID-19 pandemic prompted companies around the world to implement IT software based on digital technologies to streamline their operations. The increasing digitization of enterprises and increasing government policies favoring the implementation of digital technology software drive the market's growth. For example, according to industry experts, investment in global digital transformation in 2020 reached USD 1.5 trillion, with investments from small businesses and large corporations surging.


Such an upsurge in the government's implementation of digital technology platforms and initiatives for digitalization during the COVID-19 pandemic slightly increases the demand for supply chain management solutions.


Supply Chain Management Market Trends


Rising Advent of E-commerce to Aid Market Growth


With the advent of e-commerce, firms have started selling their products online, which has helped reach a larger audience than ever before. This trend also increased competition among companies trying to win customers’ cores by providing them with better products and services at affordable prices.


Ecommerce made shopping more convenient and accessible for shoppers by offering multiple payment options such as debit cards, credit cards, and easy return policies to ensure customers are satisfied with their purchases.


These technologies help businesses track sales performance hourly, understand what their customers want, and how they can improve their business strategy to meet those needs. From sourcing raw materials to delivering products to customers, B2B Supply Chain Management (SCM) encompasses all levels of transactions.


Further, the growth of e-commerce is impacting SCM in many ways. First, the growing demand for just-in-time delivery sets pressure on suppliers to deliver products faster and more efficiently. Second, e-commerce will impact supply chain management by allowing shipping companies to exchange documents electronically during the fulfillment process.


Thus, the above factors in e-commerce are considered trending factors in the SCM market.



Supply Chain Management Market Growth Factors


Inclination toward Technological Advancements and Investments to Drive the Growth of the Market


AI-driven supply chains are used to drive operational efficiency and increase businesses' revenue.


These technologies are majorly leading in processes such as manufacturing, maintenance, and sales. They enable uninterrupted supply chain flow by predicting failures before they occur.


These technologies are increasingly being used to improve transparency, supply chain visibility, connectivity, and the use of SCM. Companies have taken advantage of automation to accomplish efficiencies across their supply chains for decades. This pace of change is accelerating due to technological advancements such as intelligent automation (IA). IA combines artificial intelligence and robotics to automate complex processes for machines.


Further, major players in this market are investing and integrating advanced software technologies such as cloud computing, AI, machine learning, and others in SCM. For instance,



  • In December 2021, according to a Gartner survey, amongst 211 supply chain professionals, 34% of respondents said that adapting new technology is the most important strategic change in supply chain organizations.


Such an increase in the adoption and integration of AI-based and cloud based SCM software among the key players drives the market growth.


RESTRAINING FACTORS


Outsourcing the Manufacturing Operations and Procurement Processes to Different Geographic Locations Creates SCM Challenges


To minimize costs throughout the supply chain, enterprises move manufacturing operations to countries with lower labor taxes and transport costs for raw materials. For some organizations, outsourcing production involves multiple countries for different parts of their products.


However, outsourcing and the company’s procurement network extend the production process globally. Choosing suppliers in different geographical locations complicates the supply chain. Businesses need to coordinate, communicate, and collaborate with cross-border parties about manufacturing, warehousing, and logistics.


In addition, despite the increasing complexity of the manufacturer's supply chain, these parties extend or maintain fast delivery times for customers who want to receive their products on time. Thus, there is an inherent risk of losing visibility, control, and proper management over inventory, particularly if enterprise applications are not integrated.  This requires managing diverse data structures across geographies, a major challenge for outsourcing manufacturing operations and procurement processes.


Supply Chain Management Market Segmentation Analysis

Increasing Need for Environmental Protection and Time Reduction to Augment Segmental Demand


Based on module, the global SCM market is segmented into transportation management system, warehouse management system, sourcing and procurement, manufacturing, inventory management software, and others (order management).


The transportation management system is estimated to grow with a highest CAGR of 14.2% during the forecast period. Factors, such as the need for efficient transportation due to regulations and environmental protection, cost efficiency, and time reduction, are accelerating the adoption of transportation management systems in the region. According to recent studies, about 35.0% of businesses are adopting the transportation management system for managing their transportation network.


The manufacturing segment dominated the global market, with the highest supply chain management market share in 2023, as manufacturing helps businesses capture value across the entire supply chain, identify potential issues of the supply chain, and allow for better allocation of resources.



By Deployment Analysis


Rising Inclination toward Cloud Computing Among SMEs and Enterprises Boost Cloud Adoption


By deployment, the market is categorized into on-premise and cloud.


The cloud segment held a major market share in 2023 and is expected to grow with the highest CAGR from 2024 to 2032. According to a survey by Accenture, around 21% of supply chain executives deployed cloud-enabled capabilities across their entire supply chains. The rising adoption of cloud computing among enterprises around the globe aids market growth. According to the EU, around 42.0% of European enterprises have adopted cloud computing for their businesses.


The on-premise segment is estimated to witness steady growth during the forecast period as companies have to invest significant capital in purchasing the servers and hardware to get it running. Also, if the data stored on-premises is at a greater risk, companies mostly opt for cloud solutions rather than on-premises.


By Enterprise Size Analysis


Rising Adoption of Supply Chain Management Software Among Small & Medium Scale to Boost Market


In this report, the SCM market is analyzed across large enterprises and SMEs.


Small & medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are estimated to showcase the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
