Warehouse Management Systems Market Overview:
Warehouse Management System Market size is expected to garner $3,112 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 15.2% during the period 2016 - 2022. The development of digital technology steered the adoption rate of warehouse management systems (WMS) in several applications. Growth of e-commerce & requirements of omni-channel fulfillment, WMS add-on module sales, labor efficiency, cost ownership advantages, and supply chain platform integration are the major factors that supplement the growth of the market. Costly deployment of WMS solutions and dominance of ERP vendors have restrained the market growth.
Some of the key manufacturers profiled in the report include Oracle Corporation, SAP SE, Infor Inc., Manhattan Associates Inc., and others.
The market is segmented by component type, industry verticals, and geography. On the basis of component type, it is subsegmented into software and services. In the year 2015, software generated the highest revenue in the global market. However, the services subsegment is anticipated to exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period.
The geographical regions considered in the report are North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA (Latin America, Middle East, and Africa). Europe is expected to dominate the WMS market; however, Asia-Pacific is projected to grow rapidly.
WMS reduces the delivery lead times and errors while processing the orders. The suppliers seek greater efficiency and productivity while implementing WMS, which strengthens the supplier‐customer relationships, and is a notable driver for the WMS market. The impact of this factor was remarkable during 2015, and is projected to significantly rise over the forecast period.
Costly deployment of WMS solutions
Inherent challenges associated with implementation of the distribution software such as lack of process standardization in distribution, less business savvy users, high rate of simultaneous active transactions, materials handling interface requirements, and other factors result in resource monopolization, cost overruns, and operational disruption risks. Smaller facilities with lower headcounts find WMS solutions too expensive to deploy. Many such firms rely on memory-based processes, antiquated systems, and paper-based warehouse operations. In the year 2015, the impact of this factor was prominent; however, due to technological advancements, this impact is predicted to decline over the forecast period.
Emergence of SaaS-based on-demand WMS solutions
The smaller firms and other companies seek for less capital investments and greater flexibility. The on-demand supply chain execution is expected to gain larger share of the market over the forecast period. SmartTurn, a WMS vendor, was among the first companies to promote this model. Several suppliers have provided their software as a service to get a foothold in the market. The impact of this factor was notable in 2015, and is expected to increase over the forecast period.
