The cloud-based segment accounted for a larger market share in 2020.Based on end-use industry, the specification management software market is segmented into fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), pharmaceutical, and others.

In Europe, the COVID-19 pandemic had varied impact on different countries, as only selective countries witnessed the rise in the number of cases and subsequently attracted strict, as well as prolonged, lockdown periods or social isolation measures.Western European countries such as Germany, France, Russia, and the UK experienced a comparatively modest decrease in their growth activities because of the robust healthcare systems in these countries.

The outbreak led to the discontinuation of business operations and shuttering of several small and medium enterprises in the region.In the first 3-4 months of 2020, Europe experienced a dip in technological investments.

However, the region rapidly adopted remote working culture and adopted digital platforms for effective business operations.The UK’s logistics and transportation sector is widely spread and handles significantly higher volumes of food & beverages, pharmaceuticals, and chemicals.

Surge rise in the number of COVID-19 infected patients led the British government to impose lockdown measures, multiple times, to contain the spread of the virus. This triggered the adoption of specification management software to move higher volumes of pharmaceutical produce from the production units to warehouses. As Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Switzerland, and Italy are among the fastest-growing exporters of medicines and drugs, the use of specification management software in pharmaceuticals companies in these countries would continue to rise in the coming years.
