Surging Adoption of AI and Cloud-based Solutions to Act as a Key Trend

The rate of change in the procurement process of businesses has been astonishing as the implementation of technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), cloud, Machine Learning (ML), Robotic Process Automation (RPA), and the Internet of Things (IoT) remains to rise in businesses.

With digitalization becoming the norm, Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) have found it necessary to stay on top of the news regarding procurement software best practices. The future is filled with intelligent cloud-based procurement platforms, which will lead to a more vertically integrated analysis, better support for CPOs, and efficient sourcing strategies. These digital procurement technologies give CPOs access to previously unavailable metrics.

The emerging trends in procurement technology that increase businesses are next-gen analytics, artificial intelligence, digitization of supplier data, and the introduction of blockchain technology in procurement. Thus, the above-mentioned factors are projected to be a trend in the forecast period.


Integration of Emerging Technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) to Fuel Market Growth

The rise in the adoption of AI allows procurement organizations to solve complex problems more effectively or efficiently using computer algorithms. For instance,

As per the Deloitte, Chief Procurement Officers (CPOs) survey, it is reported that high-performing agility masters are ahead in adopting next-gen digital technologies in procurement. The key benefits of next-generation technologies in procurement reported by the CPOs were process efficiency (65%), process effectiveness (50%), and increased agility (50%).

Similarly, supply chains around the world are focusing on modernizing & streamlining processes to drive productivity & efficiency of business operations. This is estimated to increase the demand for digital procurement services. For instance,

  • November 2022- Strategy and management consultancy Kearney acquired a Germany-based software firm, Optano, to optimize its supply chain planning. Optano’s AI-driven software will enable businesses to optimize their supply chain processes, from production through planning and transport, and increase demand for optimization services and supply chain re-design.


Lack of Skilled Professionals to Hinder Market Growth 

With innovations flooding the market, having employees skilled in maintaining and programming advanced technologies is essential. When addressing the skills shortage, understanding the importance of procurement value proposition, managing organizational expenditures, reducing cost, optimizing supply chains, and imposing proper procurement policies are always a continuous concern for the procurement team.

According to Ivalua, a global spend management cloud solutions prominent provider, the majority of U.K. organizations (86%) encountered considerable obstacles in building digital procurement skills. From this research, it is revealed that lack of training for technical and soft skills (28%), shortage of digitally experienced talent (31%), and lack of understanding of the skills required (13%) are some of the main challenges limiting the U.K. businesses from developing the digital skills they required. Moreover, over half (55%) of the businesses in the U.K. believe that digital skills in procurement are less innovative than in other departments.

Therefore, lack of skilled professionals restricts the procurement software market growth.
