Key Highlights

  • Project management software (PMS) has evolved into a strategic function of today's business due to the accelerating pace, technological advancements, digital transformations, and disruptions happening across almost every industry.
  • Some of the factors that are expected to enhance the growth of the project management software (PMS) systems market include the increasing use of software to manage resources, the rising demand for software that minimizes project risks and project costs, budget and shuffle plans, and help in accessing real-time dashboard anywhere and anytime. On the other hand, increasing sophistication and rising capabilities, such as reminders and setting due dates, are also anticipated to provide further impetus to the market's growth during the forecast period.
  • While the factors such as increased sophistication of software systems, growing awareness among end users, and ability to connect and integrate multiple disparate systems are anticipated to drive the demand, the high installation costs of setting up these systems, coupled with high maintenance costs, are dissuading the enterprises in the end user from investing in project management software systems, thus leading to slow market penetration.
  • Project management has also evolved into a means of new product development, owing to the emergence of the Internet of Things and the adoption of agile NPD, which has now merged with PMS and has led to the development of new firms like UMT360, GenSight, and Decision Lens in the field of enterprise product creation.
  • During the COVID-19 pandemic, project management software provided a 360-degree view of import and fare control analysis, flexibility chain, provincial government strategy, and future impact on the business, among others. Hence, the reliance on such digital solutions has greatly increased and is anticipated to witness no retreat even in the post-pandemic era.
  • These software systems also helped project managers evaluate the critical ways the pandemic affected their teams to mitigate the adverse effects and plans to recover, even remotely. Enterprises intend to harness digital channels that can provide proper planning and scheduling, team collaboration, and project budgeting, among others, ultimately leading to supplementing and further strengthening their relationships with their customers.
