New ARC Advisory Group research on the Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) market illustrates the path, rate, and pattern of growth that the market will follow as it navigates the COVID-19-related economic downturn, subsequent rebound, and ultimate return to long-term growth. According to the research, the WMS market will remain relatively stable during the global economic downturn of 2020. This is due to its role as a mission-critical technology supporting fulfillment operations that are essential to business.
“ARC is forecasting a short-term reduction in demand for warehouse management systems implementations and upgrades. However, all but the most distressed WMS users will continue to support their existing infrastructure in the form of WMS maintenance and software as a service (SaaS) subscriptions. Demand for warehouse management systems will accelerate in 2021 as COVID-19-related restrictions are relaxed, business activity picks up, and pent-up demand for WMS is released,” according to Clint Reiser, Director of Supply Chain Research at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s Warehouse Management Systems Global Market Research report.
“Long-term market forces will continue to affect demand for WMS as the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic diminishes. Most notably, the ongoing rapid growth of e-commerce and omni-channel commerce and these channels’ effects on fulfillment requirements will continue to drive demand for WMS solutions,” added Reiser.
