By Type Analysis

  • Vendor risk segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period

The vendor risk segment is projected to grow at a CAGR during the projected period, mainly driven by rising supply chain disruptions. Supplier management is effective in reducing the potential risks associated with the supply chain by continuously monitoring supplier activities and their ability to meet business goals. The failure of suppliers to deliver resources on time or in the required quantity can lead to lower output, which may damage the company's reputation and its ability to withstand competition from competitors. These factors are contributing to the adoption of supplier management solutions for vendor risk management.

The financial control segment dominated the market, due to cost optimization. Companies are working to promote the affordability of their products to a wider audience through cost minimization and revenue maximization. One of the most effective ways to minimize costs is to maintain positive relationships with suppliers and negotiate discounts on bulk purchases of inputs. This can be done using supplier management solutions.

By End-user Analysis

  • Manufacturers segment registered the largest market share in 2023

The manufacturers segment accounted for the largest share. The rapid transformation in consumer behaviour is encouraging manufacturers to innovate new products with optimized quality and supply in the market.

By adopting supplier solutions, retailers can retain their position and compete with online e-commerce portals.
