Global Trade Compliance Market Grows by Double Digit Rates the Second Year in a Row

ARC Advisory Group’s research of the Global Trade Compliance (GTC) market reveals that it has grown by double digit rates for the second year in a row despite the fact that there is no standard user for this type of software and consequently there is no common understanding of what the end-to-end global trade compliance process should be. Sometimes the trade function rolls up to the supply chain function to support agility in cross border movements. Sometimes, it rolls up to legal for companies who want to be sure they are compliant with global regulations. And increasingly we are seeing industry specific solutions. Further, no GTC provider can provide compliance to all trade regulations across all nations which leads to many small domestic suppliers of these solutions.

"The complexities of complying are significant. In truth, properly classifying products for trade purposes can be difficult. The problem is that there is an incredible gap between how products are described commercially by trade and how they are expressed in the national customs tariff schedules. This has resulted in error rates of up to 30 percent. Even government experts frequently disagree on what the classification of a particular product should be," according to Steve Banker, Vice President of Supply Chain Management and key author of ARC's Global Trade Compliance Systems Market Research.
