Published by REPORTS PUBLISHER | On Jan-2023 | Pages : 250 | Report ID : RP-8

REPORTS PUBLISHERforecasts that the global supply chain security market will grow from an estimated USD 2.0 billion in 2022 to USD 3.5 billion by 2027, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.0%. The rise in incidents of cyberattacks across the supply chain is expected to fuel market growth. Moreover, a lack of awareness about supply chain security among organizations may hinder the market growth.

Supply Chain Security Market Dynamics

Driver: Rising incidences of cyberattacks across supply chains

Due to rising incidents of cyberattacks across the supply chain, organizations are seeking solutions to safeguard their supply chains from cyberattacks, check data accuracy, and increase supply chain visibility. According to cybersecurity services provider BlueVoyant, an indirect data breach due to flaws in their supply chains has been experienced by 93% of global enterprises in the last 2 years. In 2022 itself, supply chain data breaches have increased by nearly 37%. These numbers are alarming and indicate that organizations need to focus on their supply chain security. According to Yahoo Business, many entities admit that they have no means of detecting a data breach in their supply chain, and the number of such entities is on the rise.

Restraint: Budgetary constraints among small and emerging startups in developing economies

Cybersecurity requirements grow at a higher rate than budgets planned to address them. Most smaller firms lack the budget and IT security expertise to adopt enhanced cybersecurity solutions to safeguard their networks and IT infrastructures from various cyberattacks. Limited capital funding can be a major restraining factor for small and medium-sized companies embracing the supply chain security model. Emerging startups in developing countries across the Middle East & Africa, Latin America, and Asia Pacific often face a challenge to acquire finance and appropriate funding to adopt supply chain security solutions for their business. The capital funding in these firms is majorly obtained for safeguarding business-critical operations, at times leaving less or no funding for enhancing advanced supply chain security solutions.

Opportunity: Improving risk prediction and management

Risk mitigation will continue to be paramount for procurement leaders through 2025, but the approach to deliver this on priority is changing. Legal requirements and stakeholder expectations for risk screening and due diligence are increasing, and procurement leaders will need to leverage more sophisticated tools, triangulate information and data from more sources, and scan for risks in deeper parts of the supply chain than ever before. In the last few years, there has been tremendous growth in the number of tools and technologies available to support supply chain risk prediction, and several include sustainability dimensions, such as environmental, ethical, and human rights risk monitoring. Procurement leaders are working to understand and test the capabilities of these tools and consider integration into and interoperability with the existing systems across the business.

Challenge: Awareness about supply chain security among organization

From automation of tasks to streamlining operations of the Internet of Things, the supply chain sector is in the midst of a digital transformation. This has made the industry more susceptible to attacks. It is, therefore, necessary for organizations in the supply chain sector to invest in cybersecurity training and scenario-based tabletop tests of incident response plans. Companies often realize that many cyberattacks are the result of human behavior. Thus, educating employees should be at the top of any company’s list of supply chain security priorities. Organizations mostly admit that they provide employees with cybersecurity awareness training after a ransomware attack. Employees are the first line of defense in organizations; however, many organizations do not have a well-trained staff or adequate cybersecurity infrastructure to help protect the organization from supply chain attacks. If employees learn how to identify and prevent supply chain cyberattacks, it will help keep the company safe and also help the entire economy to avoid the calamitous disruptions experienced over the last few years.

By applications, healthcare and pharmaceutical segment to account for largest market share during forecast period

The healthcare industry possesses invaluable data. This data includes patient health information, personal identification, and card payment. The risk of losing this information increases when third-party vendors with whom information is shared are included in the risk matrix. The consequences of a disruption in a hospital supply chain can be more dire than just a delayed shipment when patient life is at stake. A missed delivery can cost lives as supply chains in healthcare bring life-saving medicines and treatments to the patients that need them. Hence, security is crucial in the healthcare supply chain. Tracking medications through the pharmaceutical supply chain enables healthcare supply chains to deliver legitimate medications to their patients. Hospital supply chain regulations have been implemented by many countries and regions to ensure the safety of medical and pharmaceutical products. For example, the Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD) in the European Union and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) in the US require verification and transparency of pharmaceuticals imported and sold within the respective regions.

Supply Chain Security Market Ecosystem 

By Region, Asia Pacific Is Expected to Grow at Highest CAGR During Forecast Period

Asia Pacific includes big developing economies, such as China, Japan, India, and the rest of Asia Pacific. With the increasing technological innovations and the growing presence of numerous organizations, economies in the Asia Pacific are witnessing high growth. The Asia Pacific region is strategically, geographically, economically, and demographically important in the global supply chain. Hence, this region has become a potential market for supply chain security vendors. Businesses are finding new ways to optimize their supply chain solutions and gearing up digitally for growth. The region has witnessed a surge in delivery after the pandemic, and Southeast Asia now boasts some of the world’s large local eCommerce players and super app providers. This results in supply chain security becoming an important aspect.

Secure data exchange platforms for the logistics sector have been implemented by the governments of India and Singapore as part of larger logistics policy investments. The emissions calculator for supply chains has been launched by the Indian government, and it announced a national logistics award program to improve security.
