The Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market size is projected to grow from USD 40.1 billion in 2020 to USD 66.9 billion by 2025, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 10.8% during the forecast period. The major growth factors of the ECM market include the increased need of companies to organize, categorize, and structure all of the content in a meaningful, easily explorable manner and rising demand of companies to deliver personalized content to the right audience through the right channels.

Cloud deployment mode to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period
Advances in cloud and analytics technology, as well as the continued integration of social collaboration tools, have expanded the outlook of what ECM solutions can do. The sheer volume of content that is being created and stored can be staggering; over time, the improvements in cloud and analytics technologies would drive the need for better usability and mobility among end-users. All these signs point in the direction of cloud deployment as a primary means of maximizing ECM’s effectiveness. ECM cloud-based solutions enable organizations to avoid upfront implementation and infrastructure costs, mitigate staffing expenses, and ultimately reduce their total cost of ownership on the storage and management of content. In addition to significant cost-reduction, organizations are considering improving their ECM’s ease-of-use and accessibility by implementing cloud deployment. Therefore, moving an ECM tool to the cloud makes it even easier for team members to store, retrieve, and apply content while on-the-go or working from home.
