Supply Chain Control Towers Revenue Set to Surpass US$10 Billion as Industries Seek to Unify and Leverage Supply Chain Data

January 10, 2024

Investment in Supply Chain Control Towers (SCCTs) is set to grow extensively over the coming years across all industries that seek to unify and leverage their supply chain data.

According to global technology intelligence firm ABI Research, supply chain control tower revenues will surpass US$10 million in 2025. Manufacturers, Logistics Service Providers (LSPs), and Retailers are among the highest adopters currently, with a 17%, 18%, and 15% share of revenues, respectively.

“Industries with extensive supply and distribution networks for goods are the dominant investors in SCCTs, but growth is also being seen in industries wanting to gain greater control over their assets, partners, equipment, people, and processes. SCCTs are, above all else, data aggregation tools, and vendors are finding new ways to tailor their platforms for varying SCCT use cases,” explains Ryan Wiggin, Supply Chain Management & Logistics Industry Analyst at ABI Research.

The SCCT market is a convergence of three types of providers: established supply chain system providers bringing their point solutions into a single platform, big data analytics firms crafting their solutions into SCCTs, and emerging supply chain software vendors focused entirely on end-to-end network solutions. The former holds the greatest market share, with companies like SAP and Blue Yonder expanding their capabilities for their existing client base. However, the innovative solutions and flexibility being brought to the table by vendors with a sole network focus, like One Network EnterprisesBlume Global, and o9 Solutions, offer a promising alternative for organizations seeking network unification.

European and North American organizations currently lead in adoption, with established vendor markets and growing asset tracking regulation driving investment. Asia-Pacific and Latin America SCCT markets are expected to grow strongly through the second half of the century with double-digit compound annual growth rates from 2024 to 2030.

“Applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) are taking SCCTs to new ‘cognitive’ heights, delivering advanced analytics and automated decision-making capabilities, but data quality and ownership concerns must be addressed to support broader adoption,” Wiggin advises.

These findings are from ABI Research’s Supply Chain Control Towers market data report. This report is part of the company’s Supply Chain Management and Logistics research service, which includes research, data, and ABI Insights. Market Data spreadsheets comprise deep data, market share analysis, and highly segmented, service-specific forecasts to provide detailed insight into where opportunities lie.
