Global Consumer Products and Retail Market Gains Impetus from Dynamic Consumer Demand

Consumer Products and Retail Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2015 - 2022


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/20/2016 -- Product lifecycle management (PLM) is emerging as an essential consideration for consumer goods manufacturers, as they increasingly seek ways to cater to the dynamic consumer demand. It is a new approach representing a systematic data management process pertaining to product design, support, and finally disposal in a given product development process. It is an organized approach to sustainability as both emergent and established retail consumer goods enterprises consider their overall environmental impact.

Consumers around the world purchase millions of products every year. Demand for older, long-established products eventually dies out, while, in contrast, the demand for the latest products launched in the market increases. Since consumer good companies understand the significance of the product lifecycle, they heavily invest on product research and development. Thus, delivering the right kind of product at the right time becomes the primary objective of every company operating within the consumer sector.

This visible shift from traditional end-use sectors to non-traditional ones such as retail, consumer goods, and packaged products, coupled with the surging number of grocery retail stores across developed and emerging economies, is bolstering the global PLM market for consumer goods and retail end-use sectors. Furthermore, as small and mid-sized companies leverage on cloud-based PLM solutions to increase their productivity and ROI, the demand for PLM will further increase in the consumer products and retail market.

According to a survey conducted by Transparency Market Research, the global PLM market for consumer products and retail, which stood at US$2.8 bn in 2014, will exhibit a positive CAGR of 10.40% between 2015 and 2022.
