Software Asset Management Market by Solution (License Management, Audit and Compliance Management, Software Discovery, Optimization, and Metering), Service, Deployment Type, Organization Size, Industry Vertical, and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

Software asset management market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 14.8% during the forecast period
The software asset management market size is expected to grow from USD 1.16 billion in 2017 to USD 2.32 billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 14.8% during the forecast period. The increasing need to manage the life cycle of assets and compliance-readiness are expected to be driving the software asset management market. The lack of awareness of the software asset management solutions and services among the Small and Medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and budget constraints are expected to be the major restraining factors for the growth of the market.

Software discovery, optimization, and metering solution segment is expected to hold the largest market size during the forecast period
The software discovery, metering, and optimization solution helps organizations analyze, track, and maintain the ever-changing software asset requirements. With the help of these solutions, organizations can improve the efficiency of their software, maintain an ongoing record of their software usage, identify unused license software, and view the task history to know the usage trend analysis. Due to the aforesaid benefits, the organizations adopt the discovery, metering, and optimization solution to ensure compliance, reduce their downtime, and make effective business decisions about their future software spending.

“SMEs segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period
Organizations with employees between 1 and 1,000 are categorized as SMEs. Cost-effectiveness is an important need for small businesses, as they always face constraints in marketing themselves and gaining visibility due to limited budgets. Moreover, the SMEs use software asset management solutions for license management, software discovery, optimization, and metering. Due to the limited budget, the SMEs mostly prefer cloud-based solutions over the on-premises solutions, and this adoption trend is expected to accelerate in the years to come, thereby enabling the cloud deployment type to have a considerable market size during the forecast period. The SMEs segment has a huge potential to flourish in the software asset management market during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific (APAC) is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The APAC region is expected to gain major traction in the software asset management market, due to the penetration of several companies in the region. Therefore, software asset management solutions are said to be gaining popularity in the APAC region. Factors such as a huge market potential and the increasing spending capacity of customers have encouraged organizations in this region to expand their reach and rely on different software providers to carry out operations. Additionally, the increasing adoption of cloud and mobile technologies, and the growing trend of outsourcing a few operations to specialist companies have led to the rapid adoption of software asset management solutions in APAC countries, such as India, China, and Australia.
