Global Vendor Risk Management Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Vendor Risk Management Market size is estimated to reach ~USD 52 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~17.60% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In addition to this, in the year 2022, the market size of vendor risk management was ~USD 8 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing number of third-party vendors in large and small & medium sized enterprises and the increasing need to constantly monitor vendor performance. Many large enterprises have found that their systems and processes relating to the VRM are not adequate from a purely business point of view, which may result in substantial damages as a result of an inadequate vendor risk management framework. It is expected that supply chains with any third parties and service providers will become an important source of risks for manufacturers augmenting the need for vendor risk management solutions. For instance, Toyota recalled nearly 2.9 million vehicles in January 2020, including 2011-2019 Corollas, 2011, -2013 Matrixes, 2012-2018 AUVs, and 2013-2018 Avalon hybrids due to a defect affecting airbags and seatbelts. All these factors are predicted to boost the growth of the market in the forecast period.

In addition to these, factors that are believed to fuel the market growth of vendor risk management drugs include the rise in government initiatives and enforcement by agencies such as the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to set up a robust VRM framework. These factors are also anticipated to contribute to the market growth in the forecast period.

Global Vendor Risk Management Market Segmentation

The global vendor risk management market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by deployment mode into the cloud and on-premises. Out of the two types of vendor risk management, the cloud segment is estimated to gain the largest market share of about ~34% in the year 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to the availability of flexible, affordable, and scalable cloud-based VRM systems. The prevalence of outsourcing information technology to the cloud has increased the importance of VRM. Some companies outsource most of their workflows, which means they no longer have control over them and must rely on the contractor to do a decent job. The efficacy of cooperation, decreased costs associated with managing and maintaining IT systems, sustainability through upgrades, and quality control are further key benefits of cloud computing. In recent times, numerous businesses have started to provide cloud-based VRM solutions and this is predicted to boost market growth in the coming years. For instance, Aravo, a risk management software provider based in the United States provides award-winning, industry-leading cloud-based solutions to manage third-party governance, risk, compliance, and performance.

The global vendor risk management market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by end-user into BFSI, telecom, and manufacturing. Amongst these three segments, the BFSI pharmacies segment is expected to garner a significant share in the year 2035.

Increasing interconnection raises more issues about cybersecurity. As connected businesses are almost always connected to new entities, there is a strong demand for vendor risk management in this industry and a potential cybersecurity risk. Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) predicts that in 2022, there will be an increase in cyberattacks on financial institutions. The institution predicts that the most significant cyber dangers to financial institutions in 2022 will continue to be a third-party risk, zero-day vulnerability, and ransomware.
