License Management Market

By deployment type cloud deployment type is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

By deployment type, the license management market has been segmented into two sub-segments: cloud and on-premises. With increasing awareness and the global adoption trend of cloud-based license management solutions across all industry verticals, it is expected that the cloud deployment type would witness an increasing demand during the forecast period. On the other hand, the on-premises deployment type is expected to witness a slower growth rate during the forecast period. However, the on-premises deployment type is expected to have a larger market size during the forecast period. The cloud deployment type is expected to witness a huge growth potential during the forecast period, with the highest CAGR expected in the APAC region.

By component, services segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period

Based on components, the license management market has been segmented into software and services. In the past few years, license management software and related services have gained significant market traction, as they lower the risks of non-compliance. This section of the report covers the software and services offered in the license management market. The services provided by the license management vendors include professional and managed services. These services provide the necessary support to uphold the efficiency of business processes, improve system reliability, maintain infrastructure, and increase growth while reducing the unwanted and unexpected operating expenses. The growing need among enterprises to optimize software investments and be audit-ready is expected to drive the growth of the license management market during the forecast period.

North America to dominate the license management market during the forecast period

North America is expected to be the largest revenue-generating region for the license management vendors during the forecast period, followed by Europe. This is mainly due to the presence of developed economies, such as Canada and the US, and due to the focus on innovations obtained from Research and Development (R&D) and technologies. The APAC region is expected to be the fastest-growing region in the license management market. The factor driving the market growth in the developing regions, such as APAC and MEA, is the rapid adoption of emerging trends, such as mobility and cloud. The MEA and Latin American regions are gradually adopting license management, which empowers organizations in these regions to analyze and manage the licenses efficiently while leveraging cost-effective cloud-based license management solutions.

Market Dynamics

Driver: Growing demand to optimize software investments

Enterprises are focused on saving operational cost, as their profit margins continue to decline. License management software is one more way to reduce cost, as enterprises are on the lookout to optimize software usage to maximize software usage and avoid any loss due to license non-compliance. Furthermore, license management enables enterprises to control all contracts, agreements, license entitlements, and software inventory from a centralized location.

License management software also helps organizations to efficiently organize and store software agreements, thereby helping organizations safeguard themselves against unexpected license fees and penalties. It has enabled organizations to optimize software procurement cost through various ways, such as fewer license purchases, avoidance of penalties due to non-compliance, reduction in renewals through the elimination of shelfware maintenance, and maximization of volume discount.

Restraint: Stringent regulations

With the intensifying competition, organizations across the globe are looking for ways to expand their business. Organizations have to face several challenges due to various country-specific legal rules and regulations. The usage of licenses in remote offices in different countries creates several non-compliance issues. Most of the software license agreement contracts limit the usage within the country of purchase. Global organizations having offices across various countries need to purchase licenses in one location and use it in another location. Such organizations have to bear extra costs for global deployment cases.

Opportunity: Growing cloud hosting business

Organizations are considering the cloud as a crucial part of IT strategy to remain competitive in the global market. The cloud computing technology offers clients with the advantage of low cost, scalable, and flexible solutions. Over 90% of companies claim to use cloud computing in some way or the other. With advancements in cloud technology, organizations across industry verticals are looking forward to leverage business opportunities in cloud hosting. It has created opportunities for the license management hosting team to leverage commercial opportunities of the hosting business in the cloud. For instance, DXC offers hosting programs for Microsoft SPLA, Citrix, and VMware; Reprise Software offers RLMCloud, and Flexera Software offers FlexNet Cloud Licensing Service for management of software licenses in the cloud.

Challenge: Cracks, malicious codes, keygens, and pirated software

Many times, organizations fail to detect the use of cracks, malicious codes, keygens and pirated software in their environment owing to the lack of proficiency and knowledge regarding piracy. Pirated software may be downloaded by an employee or a vendor to attack an organization’s IT systems. The growing trend of BYOD among the enterprises allowing employees to access the company’s information from their devices has further aggravated this concern.
