Supply Chain & Transportation USA is the largest international expo and conference of its kind to be held in the U.S. The market for supply chain management software (SCM), maintenance and services posted another year of solid growth, generating $8.944 billion in 2013, including applications for procurement software.
That represented a nearly 7.4% increase over 2012 revenues, according to Chad Eschinger, vice president of supply chain with research firm Gartner. Without procurement, the market generated $6.1 billion, a healthy 9% increase over 2012 revenues for the group of applications that are most relevant to our readers, including supply chain planning and supply chain execution applications such as warehouse management systems (WMS) and transportation management systems (TMS). The biggest change in the market may be the way processes that once operated in their own silos are now converging into the broader supply chain management space, such as procurement.
That is reflected in the appearance of tracks on procurement and supply management at conferences such as WERC, APICS and CSCMP.
The year 2014 is Lucky 13 - marking the 13th time we have reported on the supply chain software market from a business standpoint since 2002.

Bob Trebilcock, editorial director, has covered materials handling, technology, logistics and supply chain topics for nearly 30 years. As with last year, they were followed by JDA Software ($445 million) and Manhattan Associates ($167 million). Although we initially focused on the top providers of WMS solutions, the lines between supply chain execution and supply chain planning providers are no longer clearly drawn; ERP providers supply WMS and supply chain execution providers offer planning and optimization solutions.
In addition to Supply Chain Management Review, he is also Executive Editor of Modern Materials Handling.


Best known as a provider of product lifecycle management solutions, PTC makes the supply chain management grade as a result of its acquisition of Servigistics.
More importantly, whether you agree with all of the numbers, the order provides a good ranking of the major providers across the supply chain management space. Meanwhile, the top three providers (SAP, Oracle and JDA) accounted for 45% of the total supply chain management software market, down slightly from 48% last year. 3 provider and the largest, stand-alone provider focused solely on supply chain technologies.
