Trade Management Software Market - Growth, Trends, Covid-19 Impact, And Forecasts (2023 - 2028)


The trade management software market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.90% in the forecast period. Rising company concerns about changing rules, trade agreements, and their impact on businesses’ supply chains are an essential part of the market.

New York, March 02, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Trade Management Software Market - Growth, Trends, Covid-19 Impact, And Forecasts (2023 - 2028)" -
Increasing government requirements in many nations are projected to fuel demand for trade management software.

Key Highlights
Growing demands for trade management automation technology and the rising need to minimize organizational expenses are among the main factors driving market expansion. The market studied is based on the revenue from trade management software sales for various end-user applications.
Moreover, trade management software includes capabilities that assist traders and businesses in lowering supply chain and legal risks. It connects importers and exporters with overseas suppliers, brokers, logistic service providers, and carriers. Companies use the program to monitor and track cross-border operations. The program reduces risk and aids in the effective management and administration of imports-exports and legal and regulatory standards by automating the cooperation of cross-border operations.
Globalization and outsourcing have caused supply networks to become increasingly complex and dispersed globally. These developments reinforce the product offering of supply chain visibility solutions, which also increase the volume of international trade, the need for solutions to enhance it, and the number of products subject to compliance, customs, and tariffs.
The COVID-19 outbreak hampered international trade. To prevent the coronavirus spread, authorities in several nations imposed global transportation and trade limitations. Such restrictions and social alienation disrupted the distribution network and international trade. Sales in the chemical and automotive sectors fell significantly in developed economies such as the United States, the European Union, and China. Textiles, office machinery, precise instruments, and communications equipment have all experienced a significant drop in trade.
However, following the pandemic, the industry experienced faster digital transformation for enterprises of all sizes across all sectors. This rapid digital revolution is expected to boost global trade, commerce, and employment generation. As per the Asian Development Bank’s Asian Economic Integration Study 2021, a 20% increase in the size of the digital industry is expected to increase global production by USD 4.3 trillion between 2021 and 2025.

Key Market Trends

Consumer Goods to Drive the Market

Consumer goods companies can adopt trade management software to manage trade-related processes such as import/export management, restricted party screening, trade compliance, custom filings, free trade zones, and cross-border trade management. International trade refers to economic transactions between countries. Consumer products such as clothing and television sets, capital goods such as machinery, raw materials, food, and other goods are frequently traded.
Many global consumer goods companies use a centralized platform to gather trade expenditure information from various markets and channels for reporting and decision-making throughout the organization. The platform frequently includes data regarding trade partners’ margin needs, based on a reverse-engineering study, to make it evident what type of agreement trading partners like.
Trade promotion management (TPM) and trade promotion optimization (TPO) is the processes and technologies that consumer goods producers use to plan, manage, and execute operations that need collaborative promotional engagement from their retail partners.
The consumer goods industry is experiencing several difficulties, including inflation-driven cost rises, tighter margins, and global supply chain concerns, all of which can contribute to lower sales and brand loyalty. As a result of the economic instability, the consumer goods industry is seeking digital solutions to make its operations more effective and robust.
According to the US Census Bureau, in September 2022, the overall value of the United States imports was nearly USD 275.41 billion. Its exports were valued at around USD 176 billion that month, and in January, the overall value of the United States imports was nearly USD 247.9 billion. Its exports were valued at roughly USD 147.4 billion that month. The expanding number of imports and implementing trade management software assists firms in optimizing the costs and risks associated with international trading.
Consumer products manufacturers can adopt Trade Management Software to balance trade investment needs from retail partners with their requirements to deliver revenue and volume growth, as well as higher margins and ROI, through integrated sales planning.

North America Expected to Hold Major Market Share

The presence of key competitors such as SAP, Oracle, and Amber Road Inc. is projected to provide North America with a considerable market share in the trade management software industry.
Additionally, the region’s quick and stringent trade rules increase the demand for these solutions to ensure seamless compliance and no missed tax and duty deadlines.
The US government intends to expand its share of locally created goods. Thus, export growth will be comparable to that of international imports. As a result, the usage of trade management software is likely to increase further to track and adhere to each country’s regulatory rules.
Furthermore, the trade management software industry will likely profit from North America’s increasing cloud-based solutions market.
In March 2022, Canada contributed CAD 200,000 (~USD 150,000) to assist developing and least-developed countries in becoming more active participants in global agricultural commerce. The funding to the Standards and Trade Development Facility (STDF) will help nations fulfill international safety of food, plant, and animal health standards, allowing them to access regional and global markets more readily.
According to BEA, the overall amount of trade products and services imported into the United States climbed from USD 795.5 billion in Q1 2021 to USD 1,018.5 billion in Q1 2022. The increased trade products and services imported into the United States are expected to boost demand for trade management software.
Other regional companies are involved in various activities such as acquisition, merger, and partnership, which are expected to increase the demand for trade management software.

Competitive Landscape

The global trade management software market consists of several players. The intensity of competitive rivalry in the market is expected to be moderately high over the forecast period.
