Enterprise software total worldwide expenditure 2009-2021

In 2020, IT spending on enterprise software is expected to amount to around 503 billion U.S. dollars worldwide. Like nearly all sub-segments of the IT services industry, the enterprise software market has experienced high levels of growth in recent years, with market revenues more than doubling in the decade between 2009 and 2019. Recent forecasts suggest that this trend of rapid expansion will continue in the coming years with market revenues expected to reach 556 billion by 2021.

Enterprise software

With year on year growth frequently exceeding 10 percent, the enterprise software market is the fastest growing segment in the overarching IT industry. Enterprise software aims at responding to the needs of organizations, often specifically addressing the efficiency of their core business processes. Many enterprise software sub-segments, such as business process management (BPM) software, enterprise resource planning (ERP) software, and customer relationship management (CRM) software, have grown into massive markets in their own right. CRM software focuses on analyzing and improving business interactions with both current and future customers and is expected to bring in over 28 billion dollars in sales in 2019. ERP software focuses more closely on corporate data collection and interpretation, and is forecast to account for another 84 billion dollars in overall revenue.
