The market for supply chain management (SCM) is increasingly gaining momentum with the introduction of RFID technology and the retail expansion happening around the globe. Also, there are signs of consolidation in the supply chain space due to the evolution of software suites, which are cost-effective and have minimal integration issues.
Highlights of the briefing include: Growth Monitor showing performances of SCM companies, Industry Economics, Sector Opportunity Scorecard, Company Investment Opportunity Scorecard, Value Chain Analysis, and the Frost & Sullivan SCM Stock Index.
This briefing will provide investment ideas in the Supply Chain Space for the Private Equity and Venture Capital community. It will give an overview of the Supply Chain software market and the current trends that are impacting its participants.
“Competition in the supply chain space is intensifying mainly after the entry of ERP vendors, who provide end-to-end solutions which incorporate SCM functionalities within them,” notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst, Raja Srinivasan. “The fragmented market is entering into a consolidation phase which is evident from the recent mergers and acquisitions and this trend is expected to continue in the near future.”
