Increase in Adoption of Digital Technology Platforms and Initiatives by Government amid Pandemic to Boost Market
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 has 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 an IDC report, investment in global digital transformation in 2020 reached USD 1.5 trillion, with investments from small businesses and large corporations surging.
Furthermore, in May 2020, the Chinese government introduced the digital transformation plan with funding of USD 1.4 trillion to promote digitalization. The digitalization plan stimulates the adoption of advanced technologies such as cloud computing, 5G, IoT, AI, and various AI-driven IT software to automate local businesses in China. Such increases in government funding for digitalization and the surge in the adoption of digital platforms among SMEs and large-scale organizations around the globe have propelled the market growth.
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.

Rising Advent of E-commerce to Aid Supply Chain Management 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.
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,
Such an increase in the adoption and integration of AI-based and cloud based SCM software among the key players drives the market growth.
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.
