The global business spend management (BSM) software market size was valued at USD 21.08 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 23.36 billion in 2024 to USD 57.22 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 11.8% during the forecast (2024-2032). In the study, we have considered various BSM software offered by the market players, such as SAP SE’s SAP ARIBA, SAP Concur, SAP Fieldglass, and Coupa Software Inc.’s suite of comprehensive business spend management platforms. In addition, our study also covered GEP’s GEP SMART, GEP NEXXE, and Proactis Holdings Limited’s purchase-to-pay system and source-to-contract system.

Business spend management (BSM) software collects, collates, maintains, categorizes, and evaluates spending data to minimize procurement costs, control and monitor workflows, regulate compliance, and improve efficiency. The solutions considered in the scope include procure-to-pay solutions, supplier & risk management, travel & expense management, contract & e-tender management, spend management/spend analytics, and others (source-to-contract, treasury management). The BSM software helps organizations to provide a broad view of a company’s spending in real time to make accurate, informed decisions with greater visibility.

The COVID-19 pandemic had a moderate influence on the BSM software market, resulting in an increase in spend management concerns and risk of loss. This trend is predicted to continue in the second half of the year, as demand rises and companies are concerned about effectively managing their spending. The pandemic had a moderate impact on the U.K. market.

  • For instance, according to the Bank of England, sales in the U.K. dropped by 30% during the second quarter of 2020, while, at the same time, employment dropped by 5% and investment by 33%.

Post-COVID-19 pandemic, the need for solutions and services was higher than assumed in 2021, which reflected a strong business performance that is expected to propel revenue growth.

Business Spend Management (BSM) Software Market Trends

Rising Adoption of AI and Cloud-based Solutions to Propel Market Growth

The velocity of change in spend management of businesses has been astounding as the adoption of technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, Machine Learning (ML), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and the Internet of Things (IoT), continues to surge in the businesses. For instance,

  • Coupa AI Spend Categorization uses Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence to standardize, classify, and augment spend across ERP systems, eliminating manual classification labor.

Companies use the capabilities of a digital platform to develop flexible procurement procedures that will meet future demands. SAP Analytics Cloud provides enterprises with overall spend visibility across departments, spend categories, and suppliers to provide real-time spend insights. For instance,

  • SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) and SAP procurement solutions assist employees by providing easy, rapid, and unified procurement procedures, total expenditure visibility and supplier monitoring.

By managing the business spend, automation has clearly emerged as a crucial enabler for enhancing productivity and achieving critical business goals while lowering effort and expenses associated with manual and repetitive procedures. As a result, the most accessible parts of automation, such as AI, cloud, and RPA analytics tools, have led the adoption push.

Artificial Intelligence (AI), as a more complicated concept, is likely to achieve roughly half the adoption rates for digital spending initiatives in the coming years, with greater industry awareness.

Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to be a trend in the forecast period.

Business Spend Management (BSM) Software Market Growth Factors

Increased Usage of Spend Analytics in Businesses to Propel Market Growth

Spend management is an umbrella term used to refer to the process of requesting and approving spend, capturing transaction details, making payments, booking, tracking, and analyzing business expenditures. Currently, businesses are becoming more data-driven in the way they handle their finances, particularly when it comes to their spending. According to a research study, the demand for big data and business analytics solutions will reach USD 274.3 billion by the end of 2022.

Spend analytics software helps gather, process, organize, and analyze procurement data to make data-driven decisions. It significantly provides a way to reduce cost, enhance purchase efficiency, and manage the supply chain risks to optimize the procurement spending process.

Organizations are improving their supply chain management by utilizing spend analysis tools. It provides real-time information and visibility into product lines, service offers, and supplier relationships. As a result, more control over various processes in the supply chain is gained. Spend analytics provides a clearer picture of the supply chain's sourcing, contracting, and purchasing operations. This enables refocusing on resources to address bottlenecks in present initiatives. Companies are developing new tools to help them manage their spending. For instance,

  • IBM Travel Manager, in collaboration with Travelpor, developed an AI-based tool for managing business travel spend. This cloud-based solution makes use of IBM Watson to manage, track, analyze, and predict travel costs all in one place. This assists businesses in optimizing their travel programs. This new platform has assisted the organization in increasing its business spend management software market share.


Lack of Technical Skills to Inhibit Market Growth

Procurement teams in businesses are swamped with normal purchasing tasks, supplier management, purchasing order processing, and so on. Expenditure management, on the other hand, necessitates committed efforts to define, collate, assess, and execute spending opportunities for data savings on a regular basis.

According to Ivalua, a prominent provider of spend management cloud solutions, the majority of U.K. organizations (86%) encounter considerable impediments to building digital procurement skills. According to the research, one of the primary challenges restricting the U.K. businesses from acquiring the digital skills they want is a paucity of digitally savvy individuals (31%), lack of knowledge of the abilities required (13%), and lack of training for technical and soft skills (28%). Furthermore, more than half (55%) of the U.K. businesses believe that digital skills in procurement are less advanced than in other departments.

When a business person does not have a thorough understanding of the company's spending, it is difficult to assess it or develop a strategy for managing it. Unfortunately, a prevalent issue is the lack of real-time visibility. This is especially true for growth-stage firms with large capital expenditures (CAPEX), limited or nonexistent finance staff, and a lack of specific systems to handle spending and budgeting.

These problems also contribute to disorganized financial records and insufficient spend data. Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to hamper business spend management (BSM) software growth.
