The rising demand for streamlining and centralizing business processes is the leading factor driving market growth. Furthermore, the market is poised to expand, owing to the rising penetration of smart devices, the Internet of Things (IoT), and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

U.S. Quality Management Software Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

Quality management software integrates numerous business processes in a single platform, such as audit management, document control, non-conformance management, environmental health and safety, training management, or supplier quality management. Enterprises and modern-day project managers are emphasizing implementing and inducing quality standards in their business processes to enhance the efficacy of the business. These factors are expected to drive the demand for quality management software industry over the forecast period.

QMS offers benefits such as better visibility into enterprise data, reduction in manufacturing costs, mobility & flexibility in document control, and resolving non-conformance issues. Cloud-based QMS facilitates a connected system to transfer quality data in and out of a QMS platform. In April 2023, Greenlight Guru, a cloud-based software solutions developer for MedTech companies, announced the launch of Export API. The new feature enabled customers to export data from the QMS platform to third-party software, such as CRM, ERP, and business intelligence solutions. The new API functionality helped users drive efficiency. Such developments are expected to drive the market growth over the forecasted period.

QMS allows businesses to manage their quality compliance processes better and align their operations with industry laws and standards. These solutions also allow organizations to align quality management strategies with their business objectives. Businesses are widely adopting quality management techniques such as Six Sigma and ISO standards to improve productivity, process effectiveness, and customer satisfaction. As a result, QMS is expected to play a vital role in enabling organizations to focus on quality process automation, supplier quality assurance, and compliance management during the forecasted period.

QMS facilitates end-use enterprises to enhance product development by collecting people, product information, and processes into a single platform. QMS provides a closed-loop quality system by linking processes and quality records with product design, allowing manufacturers of medical devices and biotechnology to develop safe and compliant products. In September 2023, Arena Solutions, Inc., launched the Arena cloud-native QMS, and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) software solutions in China. PTC Inc., the parent company of Arena Solutions, also partnered with VST ECS, a management services provider, and Amazon Web Services (AWS) to make Arena PLM and QMS available in China to meet the increasing demand for SaaS solutions.

Solution Insights

The complaint-handling segment held the largest revenue share of over 15.0% in 2022 and is expected to register a considerable CAGR of 12.0% over the forecast period. Effective management of complaints helps organizations meet customer expectations. Conventional tools and processes for complaint handling help businesses handle customer complaints effectively and efficiently, enabling them to remain successful in the long run. However, changing consumer behavior and purchasing preferences, coupled with the rising demand for customized solutions, are compelling organizations to focus more on enhancing customer satisfaction to engage customers for longer periods. Subsequently, a robust complaint management system can help handle distinct and complex customer queries, resolve their issues, and offer them a satisfactory experience.

Deployment Insights

The on-premise segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 52.0% in 2022. The demand for on-premise software is increasing as several businesses are transitioning from manual systems to automated systems. On-premise deployment of QMS facilitates the customization of the software to the client's business requirements. Businesses emphasizing high levels of data protection prefer on-premise QMS deployment to mitigate the risks associated with the loss of sensitive information and critical company data. Due to high data security, end-users are increasingly implementing on-premise quality management software.

The cloud segment is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR of 11.0% over the forecast period. Features, such as flexibility and mobility, are driving the widespread adoption of cloud-based QMS. Additionally, cloud-based deployment also annuls the need for end-users to invest in dedicated hardware, thereby saving costs significantly. Cloud-based QMS is hosted on the cloud and can be accessed using a web browser. In a cloud-based deployment, all system upgrades are managed by the vendor. For end-users, data can be accessed easily from any location. These features are driving the market demand for cloud-based quality management software.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprises segment accounted for the largest revenue share of over 60.0% in 2022. Large organizations require consolidated resources to manage their business activities on a single platform. QMS solutions offer them the option to maintain control over procedures and help implement an enterprise-wide deployment. Cost-effectiveness is one of the major factors driving the adoption of QMS solutions among large enterprises. Many QMS suppliers offer dedicated software suites for large enterprises. These suites perform a vital role in the selection process since they are created to address the precise needs of the clients.

The small and medium enterprise (SME) segment is anticipated to expand at the fastest CAGR of over 11.0% during the forecast period. QMS solutions help SMEs reduce the overall cost of a finished product by streamlining processes. The demand for QMS solutions from SMEs is typically high since SMEs are highly focused on cost efficiency. SMEs prefer robust quality management software to scale their operations and ensure regulatory compliance. Moreover, QMS can play a critical role by helping SMEs eliminate waste, mitigate errors, and minimize inefficiencies. All such factors are driving the adoption of QMS among SMEs.

Industrial robotics, data analytics, 3D printing, and machine learning are some of the leading technologies that would boost segment growth. Increasing awareness among manufacturers regarding the benefits of QMS in curbing downtimes and asset failure rates is further anticipated to propel the segment over the forecast period.
