U.S. spend management platform market size, by deployment, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19, pandemic negatively affected the spend management platform market. As a result of COVID-19, the economy had to deal with decreased activity and rising unemployment. The businesses have been operating despite the pandemic and the ones with efficient operations were able to survive this period. Enterprises had to quickly adopt remote working in the wake of the pandemic, which further led to investments in infrastructure based on the cloud. In May 2021, Sage Intacct announced the launch of its cloud business management in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) marketplace to support its objective of transforming the way people or organizations work and improving their efficiency. It was a move to provide streamlined and efficient financial management solutions through an easy-to-use platform and support to small-scale businesses.

In recent years, there has been a significant demand for the spend management platform, as it, eliminates inaccuracy, and provides advanced analytics for a greater understanding of the financial condition of the firm. The market for spend management platform services has great potential in emerging economies such as India, China, Brazil, and Australia and also in developed countries like the U.S. where technology is way more advanced compared to developing economies.
