A key factor driving the growth of the market is improved traceability, visibility, and productivity of supply chain. SCM is used to maintain inventory levels to address future customer demand. The use of SCM maximizes productivity, standardizes procurement, and minimizes stock keeping. Companies that have multiple production facilities face challenges when coordinating between various procurement and stock keeping departments if they do not use SCM software solutions. Moreover, SCM software solutions not only improve the visibility of cross-functional departments for organizations, but also identify the freight cost of the supply chain to track and make appropriate changes to reduce the cost of transportation. Thus, these factors are expected to drive the growth of the global SCM software market, during the forecast period.
