The adoption of technologies such as advanced analytics, advanced sensors, Software as a Service (SaaS), and mobility is gaining momentum across the globe, driving the demand for enterprise integration. This, in turn, is leading to the increased deployment of IWMS across organizations. Organizations across the globe lack transparency and insight in their facilities and corporate processes as well as the related data. Deployment of an IWMS offers organizations transparency across all relevant aspects by forming a structured and standardized data repository for all corporate processes. As organizations become more aware of the several benefits of IWMS, their demand is further anticipated to rise over the forecast period.

Intense competition across several industries has necessitated that businesses make quick and right decisions to stay competitive. Mergers and acquisitions, budget constraints, reorganizations, and other economic factors put pressure on businesses. This increases the demand for integrated and reliable management information to support decision-making processes. An IWMS supports strategic, tactical, and operational decision-making with analysis, reports, and dashboards, and allows businesses to create specific analysis or output based on historical trends and future forecasts.

IWMS vendors are facing challenges in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has compelled organizations across several industries to temporarily stop spending on new automation initiatives. However, this spending is expected to accelerate from 2021 onwards. Additionally, market players are expected to witness a significant decline in their revenues in 2020, which is likely to put additional pressure on them to reduce costs. Moreover, the market is likely to benefit from the potential increase in the demand for advanced IWMS solutions with social distancing benefits and risk management capabilities, best suited to new regulations and guidelines regarding workforce safety, post the pandemic.

However, lack of awareness about IWMS and its importance in organizations is anticipated to hamper the market growth to a certain extent. Furthermore, myths such as high implementation costs and the requirement of extensive training for the implementation of IWMS are also restricting the market growth. Several IWMS vendors license software and technologies from third-party providers. These third-party providers may not continue to partner on commercially reasonable terms, thus software and technologies may not be appropriately maintained or supported by the licensors, which may result in delays in the development process.
