Project Management Software Procurement Category Market Research Report from IBISWorld Has Been Updated

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2014

Project management software has a buyer power score of 4.0 out of 5. This score reflects favorable market conditions for buyers due to stable prices and low market risks. Still, buyer negotiating power is restrained by moderate market share concentration and high switching costs.

Recent pricing trends have been beneficial to buyers in the three years to 2014, according to IBISWorld analyst Andrew Yang. Although prices have increased slightly, the increase has been mitigated by several factors. Many other software applications can act as substitutes for project management software. Suppliers cannot raise prices too high or they risk losing buyers to these substitute applications. Furthermore, project management software is still in the growth stage of the product life cycle. Suppliers are inclined to keep prices low to encourage buyers to try out their product. Due to increased demand, prices are forecast to continue rising slowly in the three years to 2017, but will remain relatively stable. Stable prices are beneficial for buyers because they allow buyers to better plan their budgets and manage their costs. Buyers can take their time in evaluating vendors because they do not have to worry about prices rising significantly.

Buyers also benefit from very low market risks. Project management software vendors are not dependent on any inputs that may result in supply disruptions or price shocks. Because the average vendor is financially stable, there is low risk of bankruptcy, says Yang. Low market risks benefit buyers by ensuring that vendors can provide steady access to project management software. Current major vendors include Oracle, Microsoft, Planview and CA Technologies.

Buyer negotiating power is lowered by moderate market share concentration and high switching costs. Project management software is relatively new and buyers tend to purchase this software from software corporations with established brand names. High market share concentration is negative for buyers because vendors will have increased leverage in setting prices. Buyers of project management software also face high switching costs, meaning that buyers cannot easily switch to other vendors and may end up locked in with a supplier.
