The Global ERP Software Market size is expected to reach $70.3 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 10.5% CAGR during the forecast period. The demand for enterprise resource planning (ERP) software has grown with the mandate of large corporations for a centralized solution to manage all requirements of the information system. In short, an ERP system allows for centralized management of each organization or business area while operating independently. The benefits of using a single database include data interoperability, improved communication and enhanced data reliability. ERP also improves the quality of decision-making throughout the business.

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is referred to business process management software that enables enterprises to use integrated application systems to manage business and automate certain product, technology and human resources related back office functions. ERP software combines all aspects of an organization into a single database, application, and user interface, including product development, manufacturing, product planning, sales, and marketing. It also provides a degree of structured monitoring and automation. Instead of requiring employees to keep different databases and spreadsheets that need to be combined manually to produce documents, ERP systems allow employees to extract reports from one process.

Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
