Increasing focus on enhancing procurement channels’ operational efficiencies to drive the procurement analytics market
The global procurement analytics market size is expected to grow from USD 1.6 billion in 2018 to USD 4.1 billion by 2023, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 20.4% during the forecast period. Growth factors for the market include organizations’ increasing focus on enhancing the operational efficiencies of their procurement channels and their imminent need to handle compliance polices and contracts. However, lack of analytical expertise and employees’ reluctance to adopt advanced analytical technologies may affect the market growth.
Services segment to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
The procurement analytics market by service includes professional and managed services. Further, professional services have been classified into consulting, training and education, integration and deployment and support and maintenance services. These services help clients understand their procurement related processes effectively. The solution segment is expected to hold a larger market size during the forecast period. The procurement analytics solutions are being deployed by many Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) for supplier and market intelligence, and to keep company expenditures to a minimum without affecting operations.
Increasing deployment of cloud-based procurement analytics solutions in SMEs to drive the market during the forecast period
The SMEs segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR, owing to the increasing adoption of pay-as-you-go model to manage IT infrastructure as per their requirements. SMEs are concerned about the expenditures of deploying on-premises procurement analytics solutions and contracting skilled staff, and IT teams for their maintenance and hence are leaning towards cloud-based analytical solutions for improving their profit margins and efficiencies. Though SMEs are small in terms of their size, they cater to a large number of customers globally. Limited budgets make the SMEs more susceptible to revenue losses due to high spending, irregular procurement channels, and improper supply chain management. However, organizations’ struggle to sustain their position in the competitive environment and their increasing focus on enhancing procurement channels’ operational efficiencies will drive the demand for procurement analytics solutions among SMEs. These solutions not only enhance the procurement channels of SMEs but also enable them to make strategic decisions regarding their inventory, spend, and supply chain and to comply with regulations by ensuring customer data protection as well as organization data protection from data thefts.
