The trade management software market is expected to register a CAGR of 9.5% in the forecast period (2021 - 2026). Due to globalization, the value of import and export is also increasing. According to WTO, the value of merchandise trade was up by 10% to USD 19.48 trillion in 2018, partly due to higher energy prices. The value of commercial services trade rose by 8% to USD 5.80 trillion in 2018, driven by strong import growth in Asia.
