Product Information Management Market By Offerings (Software, Services), By Deployment Model (On-premise, Cloud-based), By End-use Vertical (Automotive, BFSI, Healthcare, IT & Telecom, Manufacturing, Media & Entertainment, Retail & E-commerce, Transportation & Logistics, Others) - Growth, Share, Opportunities & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The global product information management market is expected to witness significant growth, expanding at a CAGR of 17.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. The growth is primarily due to the increasing need for a centralized repository to manage important information related to the products. The main purpose of product information management is to securely store product information so that it can be easily extracted, retrieved, assessed, and utilized. Without a proper product information management system in place, these processes can be very time-consuming and cumbersome. Product information management is helpful in providing safe and secure access to the information that is stored in the centralized system. It enables easy and quick access to the repository information and, at the same time, provides strategic data storage techniques while maintaining data quality. As a result, increasing demand for centralizing product data information is driving the growth prospects of the product information management market worldwide.

Product information management streamlines and automates the business process for consistent, efficient, and accurate management of product content. In any business organization where product information is scattered across different departments or verticals, a product information management tool is a requisite. It helps collect information from different departments and transform it into one product database that is accessible to everyone. Management of product information aids businesses in reducing the overall time and cost required for generating, storing, publishing, and managing information. Product information management is the most commonly used thread that runs through e-commerce, sales, and marketing domains.

The rapid growth of the e-commerce industry is another significant factor facilitating the growth of the product information management market. The e-commerce sector has given rise to multichannel retailing, where distinct channels require distinct versions of product information. Organizations with high volumes of inventory must have accurate and up-to-date product information. The cost of inaccurate inventory, incorrect shipments, returned items, and other errors can have a significant impact on the profitability of a business organization. The rise in multichannel commerce, online retailing, etc., has led to exponential growth in product data and also raised the complexity of managing it. This, in turn, has increased the adoption of product information management solutions for managing product information across multiple sales channels and locations.

Market Snapshot

Software held the largest market share in 2017.

Based on offerings, the global product information management market was dominated by the software segment in 2017 and is likely to remain dominant throughout the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. Product information management software saves time and money, reduces errors in product information and customer orders, allows flexibility with evolving products, helps offer a uniform customer experience across all channels, etc. As a result of the aforementioned benefits of PIM software, as well as the growing need of enterprises to harmonize and centralize all marketing and technical information of their products and catalogs, the segment is growing, which is facilitating the growth of the overall product information management market.

The Cloud-based Model is Likely to Emerge as the Fastest-Growing Segment from 2018 to 2026.

Based on the deployment model, the on-premise segment led the market in 2017. The security features offered by the on-premise model over the cloud are mainly supporting the growth of this segment. Several organizations across the globe are still largely dependent on the on-premise deployment model. However, with an on-premise product information management tool, as the product catalog grows, so do the number of users and the requirements. As a result, the infrastructure and servers age, affecting the performance of product information management software. The market is already witnessing a paradigm shift from on-premise to cloud, and therefore cloud-based models are projected to emerge as the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026. In order to address enterprise-wide use cases, cloud-based product information management solutions have remarkable product features and offer a faster roadmap to address requirements as businesses evolve. By moving product information management to the cloud, companies can harness the full capabilities of accurate data for promoting innovation, decreasing the cost of quality, exceeding customer expectations, and driving revenues.
