A new report from MarketsandMarkets states that the core HR software market is expected to expand from $6.47 billion in 2017 to $9.89 billion by 2022. Additionally, the market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 8.8 percent per year during this period. This includes core HR software across all components, deployment types and organization sizes.
The report states North America stands to be the largest region in terms of global market share due to a rising demand for cloud deployment and increases in the automation of HR processes. What’s more, North American businesses are leading the pack in terms of differentiated, customized and flexible products that meet the needs of HR professionals.
The largest contributor to the predicted market growth in America is governmental agencies. Because of the large pool of employees working for the US government, it is the most likely to adopt core HR software. However, it’s important to note that outdated infrastructures will be the biggest disadvantage for the US government in integrating new systems.
Another important takeaway from the study is that SMEs are expected to grow at that highest compound annual rate. Businesses with 100 to 1,000 employees are highly expected to deal with a resource shortage during this period, thus requiring better HR software to solve cost efficiency challenges.
This expected growth for core HR software is good news for HR software vendors of all sizes. It’s important to keep in mind that innovative HR software with customizable features will find the largest purchase with American businesses. The continued adoption of smartphone and cloud platforms means core HR software needs to compliment BYOD and cloud-centric networks. Want to explore the implication of this report in detail?
