U.S. Quality Management Software Market  size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

Quality management software helps businesses maintain industry standards to sustain their market presence. The need for organizations to improve their efficiency using artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) is growing, which is helping end-use industries to enhance product quality by following industry standards. Therefore, the use of QMS surged in U.S. Businesses, which aids in quality management, checking supplied material standards, and other mandatory standard compliance management through automation. For instance, in September 2023, Rockwell Automation, a provider of industrial automation solutions, announced a 1-year partnership with BIC USA INC., a manufacturer of stationery products, to provide a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution.

In addition, recently cloud-based quality management software is in high demand because it allows organizations to ensure remote access and high scalability. This, in turn, reduces the stress on the business functioning mechanism and enables businesses to execute operations in less time and with optimum resources. Additionally, cloud-based software can help in system automation, making it an attractive option for organizations looking to streamline their operations. As a result, high demand for cloud based QMS is fueling the growth of this market in U.S. Quality management software provides a better means for improving the process and operating margin by evaluating performance effectiveness and improving the quality of finished products. Additionally, it aids in the promotion of consistent and proper record-keeping by increasing employee awareness and reducing wastage and unnecessary expenses

Quality management software is a valuable tool for organizations to manage client complaints efficiently that helps to resolve complaints effectively and meet client expectations, which are essential for the growth and success of any organization. Therefore, usage of an integrated QMS enables organization to handle end-user clients efficiently, ensuring sustained business growth in the end

However, U.S. quality management software faces challenges regarding data security-related problems that may hinder market growth. On-premise and cloud-based quality management software are vulnerable to data breaches and cyber threats. When data is accessed unethically, it risks the privacy of the company, clients, and individuals. Businesses are increasing their investments in data backup centers and secondary storage devices to protect against critical data loss. Through this collaboration, clients can oversee the entire data security workflow and optimize compliance and data privacy. Integrating multiple data security components into a single workflow can help organizations gain a comprehensive overview and reduce the likelihood of vulnerabilities. This approach is expected to enhance overall productivity.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The U.S. quality management software market is experiencing a high rate of growth, which is accelerating with each passing day.

Moreover, AI & ML are improving the scalability and cost-effectiveness of business entities. Increased automation integration in operations such as document categorization, data extraction, and intelligent search functionalities are helping the QMS market grow. The market is also witnessing high merger and acquisition (M&A) activities. For instance, in Jan 2024, a U.S.-based company, Zendesk, announced a completion of an agreement to acquire Klaus, an AI-powered QMS. It will help both entities to enhance their presence in United States.

The U.S. market is also subject to rules and regulations set by the regulatory bodies of the United States. An example, The FDA has issued the Quality Management System Regulation (QMSR) to modify the Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) requirements for medical devices under the Quality System (QS) regulation. This incorporates the international standard set by ISO 13485:2016, which outlines quality management systems for medical devices and is required for regulatory purposes. All market players operating in the market should abide by the regulations in the countries wherever they are applicable.

The reduced availability of quality management solutions has resulted in a lower threat of substitutes, but very few substitutes provide differentiated and customized solutions.

Effective complaint management is crucial for businesses to meet customer expectations. Traditional tools and processes for complaint handling can help companies handle customer complaints efficiently, enabling them to remain successful. However, changing consumer behavior and purchasing patterns, along with the rising demand for personalized solutions, are compelling organizations to focus more on enhancing customer satisfaction to keep them engaged for more extended periods. Therefore, a robust complaint management system can help handle unique and complex customer queries, resolve their issues, and provide them with a delightful consumer experience.

In a cloud-based deployment, the vendor is responsible for managing all system upgrades. This makes it easy for end-users to access data from any location. The flexibility and mobility offered by cloud-based QMS have driven their widespread adoption. Moreover, cloud-based deployment eliminates the need for end-users to invest in dedicated hardware, which significantly reduces costs.

However, the demand for on-premise software is decreasing, and more companies are opting for cloud-based Quality Management System (QMS) solutions. However, some companies need help accessing or affording cloud services. The market is observing changes as businesses transition from manual to automated systems. On-premise deployment of QMS allows for greater customization to the client's business requirements. Businesses that prioritize high levels of data protection tend to prefer on-premise QMS deployment to mitigate the risks associated with the loss of sensitive information and critical company data. Therefore, it is evident that both on-premise and cloud deployments will contribute to the growth of the QMS Market.
