U.S. quality management software market size, by solution, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The outbreak of COVID-19 severely affected industries around the globe. The disruption in supply chain activities and a reduction in end-user investment in products and services restrict the overall market growth. The quality management software (QMS) market saw a moderate effect of COVID-19 on its growth. The market saw a slump in growth owing to financial restrictions and hesitation to invest in new technologies. However, as the market recovered, industry organizations needed to implement quality management systems to manage and document their operations. As the quality of products and services delivered gained importance during the pandemic, and according to the study published in ‘Preventing the medication errors in hospitals: A qualitative study in ‘International Journal of Africa Nursing Sciences’ in August 2020, the prevalence of medication errors remained as (32.1%) for general practitioners, (39%) for nurses (38%), and pharmacists (23%). This will lead to adopting healthcare quality management systems, driving market growth.

QMS solution providers are focused on enhancing sustainability practices to help companies reduce waste and carbon footprint. Organizations deploy these solutions to align their processes with standards such as United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to reduce carbon emissions. While QMS solutions offer several benefits to users, they also involve some challenges such as a lack of collaboration, and misalignment with the existing IT infrastructure. While vendors have proactively been trying to tackle these issues, the widespread acceptance of cloud-based deployment of QMS is expected to prove beneficial in addressing these challenges across industries and verticals.

Companies around the world are realizing the value of an all-encompassing QMS in improving company performance and gaining a competitive advantage. They're proactively evaluating and investing in QMS solutions to guarantee that quality standards are upheld throughout the product lifecycle. Technological advancements such as cloud computing, analytics, and big data have further enhanced the existing capabilities of QMS in terms of scalability, cost efficiency, flexibility, and platform independence, among others. As a result, end-use industries such as life sciences, manufacturing, and IT & telecom are rapidly adopting QMS solutions.

Quality management standards and international technical specifications such as IATF 16949, AS9100 Rev.D, and ISO 9001 are projected to enhance QMS adoption throughout end-use sectors. Moreover, C-level executives across organizations are taking efforts to align quality management with strategic business objectives.
