Moreover, cloud ERP providers prioritize data security, often implementing stringent measures such as encryption, multi-factor authentication, and frequent security assessments. This robust safety structure offers companies additional protection that may be complicated to provide internally, reducing risks related to data breaches and cyber threats. This factor is expected to drive the market growth over the forecast period, thereby providing numerous growth opportunities for the stakeholders.

Cloud ERP has emerged as a transformative solution for several end-use industries, such as construction, addressing various complexities inherent in project-based environments. Construction companies may effectively control project costs with the help of cloud ERP applications as they link financial data with project operations. With the help of this integration, it is possible to keep a tab on how resources are being used, budget allocations, and expenses in real-time, which is another factor that is positively impacting the market growth. For instance, in May 2023, IFS, a cloud software company, announced a partnership with NCC, a construction company, to increase productivity and efficiency across all its businesses in the four Nordic countries. IFS Cloud will replace the current Infor Lawson ERP and IBM Maximo EAM solution at NCC. The technology will give NCC's business visibility, boost operational effectiveness, and simplify accounting procedures. Through the partnership, NCC Company will use IFS Cloud Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), and IFS Cloud ERP will support 7,000 users across NCC.

Cloud ERP has emerged as a prime focus for government organizations and large-scale enterprises. These organizations gain access to several opportunities as they make strategic investments, including rapid innovation and increased operational effectiveness to improve data governance and compliance. For instance, in February 2023, Oracle announced an investment of USD 1.5 billion to meet cloud computing requirements in Saudi Arabia. Oracle announced plans to create a third public cloud region in Saudi Arabia to address the rapidly expanding demand for cloud services. The new cloud region is expected to support the local businesses with reduced latency issues and increased scalability options that will in turn drive the adoption rate of cloud ERP solutions in the country. Consequently, the number of enterprises migrating from their conventional hosting platforms to cloud platforms will increase, thereby creating pavement of opportunities for cloud migration services associated with ERP software.

Cloud ERP eliminates the need for small businesses to invest in costly hardware and IT infrastructure. This means that small businesses can save money on hardware and maintenance costs, which is expected to drive the market growth. Moreover, it provides a robust platform for SMEs to digitally transform their business operations, modernize their procedures, and remain competitive in a rapidly evolving business environment. Cloud ERP systems offer real-time visibility into the utilization of resources, helping SMEs allocate assets effectively and reduce costs. For instance, in March 2023, SAP SE, a software company, launched an innovative offering termed GROW with SAP for midsize companies to take advantage of the proven features of cloud ERP. GROW with SAP, which is explicitly developed to assist midsize businesses in maximizing the benefits of cloud ERP, assures that customers will stay up to date with the current technological advancements to help them develop efficiently. A global community of specialists and free instructional resources are also available to midsize companies who use GROW with SAP, ensuring they achieve real business results.

The increasing threats of cyberattacks are pushing cloud ERP providers to enhance their security measures. Advanced cybersecurity frameworks are necessary for ensuring data safety, compliance, and resilience when businesses entrust sensitive information to the cloud. However, several cloud ERP providers frequently perform security audits and penetration tests to identify vulnerabilities in the system. These timely approaches can assist in identifying and addressing various issues before intruders can take advantage of them. Moreover, robust encryption techniques need to be adopted by cloud ERP providers to protect data security throughout server storage and transfer between users and the cloud.

Deployment Insights

The public cloud segment accounted for the highest market share of over 58% of the market in 2022. The segment growth can be attributed to the growing flexibility in cost models, the increasing need to avoid vendor lock-in situations, and the rising adoption of containerization architecture to enhance scalability. Subscription-based deployments of public cloud ERP are becoming more prevalent, aligning costs with actual usage. As a result, resource allocation is made more flexible, modular, and effective, maximizing IT spending while retaining performance. Besides this, containerization architecture is driving agility in cloud ERP deployments. The increasing adoption of container management in enterprises demonstrates the appeal of multi-cloud architectures. Furthermore, public cloud platforms allow end users to manage on multiple heterogeneous cloud platforms to achieve maximum independence. Hence, public cloud eliminates vendor lock-in and facilitates seamless migration between vendors. All these factors are expected to drive the segment growth in the market.

The hybrid cloud segment is anticipated to register the highest growth rate over the forecast period. Businesses are utilizing the hybrid cloud strategy to handle issues that are challenging to resolve with conventional IT systems. The hybrid cloud approach is bridging the gap between IT and enterprises by enhancing efficiency and agility and swiftly delivering IT services at a competitive price.Hybrid cloud enables performance optimization by allowing organizations to strategically assign workloads based on their specific requirements and providing the essential agility to respond to new business demands. Companies that use a hybrid cloud can readily extend their workloads on the cloud and more rapidly test, prototype, and release new products as they are not restricted to their personal on-premise infrastructure, which is supporting the segmental growth of the market.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprises segment accounted for the highest market share of over 56% of the global market in 2022.The market growth in large enterprises is driven by the necessity of scalability, automation for efficiency, monitoring processes, and unified data administration. Large enterprises manage huge amounts of data from various sources. With cloud ERP, organizations can centralize customer data, increase data accuracy, and deliver insightful data, which is expected to drive segment growth in the market.

The small & medium enterprises segment is anticipated to register the highest growth rate over the forecast period. SMEs are leveraging Cloud ERP to optimize resource allocation, minimize cost, and enhance operational efficiency. Cloud ERP systems provide real-time visibility into resource utilization, helping SMEs allocate assets effectively and reduce costs. Cloud ERP systems include extensive analytics and reporting features that enable SMEs to extract useful information from their data and make decisions that promote innovation in the cloud ERP market growth.
