Report Overview

The global quality management software market size was valued at USD 8.72 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.4% from 2022 to 2030. The market growth is attributed to the increasing relevance of customer-centric manufacturing and the frequent changes in legislation and standards that necessitate repeated compliances. Organizations need to comply with ISO 90001, ISO 14001, and other international standards in order to conduct their operations globally, as it allows them to fulfill market expectations, competitive pricing, regulatory obligations, and consumer needs. The outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively impacted the manufacturing and transport & logistics industries. To avoid future impact, vendors are focusing on protecting their current customer base by enhancing customer experience and communications. The plans to upgrade technology are likely to be delayed due to the efforts made to reduce non-critical and CAPEX investments.

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

As per the projections of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), estimated in June 2020, the world was likely to witness a growth of -4.9% in 2020, which was expected to hamper the environment for innovation or investments. Manufacturing and transport & logistics industries were expected to experience a significant negative impact in the aftermath of the pandemic. The suspension of production and trade of various goods and services was expected to affect the QMS market in the short term. Supply chain disruptions and the introduction of new regulations had a profound impact on the 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 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, the C-level executives across organizations are taking efforts to align quality management with strategic business objectives.
