Research and Markets: Global SCM Market 2016-2020 - Growing Demand for SCM from SMEs


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global SCM Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.

The report predicts the global supply chain management (SCM) market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 11% during the forecast period.

The need to improve supply chain visibility and the desire for better transparency of orders, inventory, and shipment information, has driven the growth of the SCM market. SCM software provides better visibility to organizations with a cross-functional access and also offers exception-based process management platforms that enable staff to micro-manage steady-state processes.

Another key factor that is aiding the SCM market is the growing demand for SCM from SMEs. The primary reason for this demand is SCM's ability to reduce the purchase cycle and obtain high productivity with low operating costs. Also, may SMEs are expanding their business operations, hence the need to implement SCM software to operate easily using automatic management systems is on the rise.

Even though the cloud SCM or on-demand software accounts for just over 25% of the overall market, organizations nowadays prefer on-demand over on-premise traditional SCM applications because the total deployment costs of on-demand are much less than on-premise. As a result, the demand for cloud SCM software is expected to increase tremendously during the next five years.
