Market Overview

The subscription and billing management software market was valued at USD 2.9 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach USD 13.8 billion by 2030, with a CAGR of 16.7% during the forecast period, 2020–2030. 

The subscription and billing management software market is moderately consolidated with active players, such as  Zuora, Gotransverse, Aria Systems, and Sage PLC, operating across the globe. Surging adoption of self-service payments, subscription-based business models, and video-on-demand services due to the COVID-19 lockdown drives market growth. On the flip side, increasing data breach cases due to a lack of secure solution and privacy concerns hamper the market growth.

Subscription and billing software offers a digital channel for subscribers to pay for the services. Recently, the media and entertainment sector witnessed tremendous growth in online streaming subscriptions due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, the number of businesses and websites accessing these services obtain better management of their clients and subscribers. The software also offers automatic payment gateways for periodic bill payments, which can be done by linking a user’s credit or debit cards or bank account, further driving the market growth.

Market Dynamics

Transformation in Business models

The adoption of cloud-based services is expected to create a huge impact on various industry domains. This rapid adoption evolves in transforming the business models that help various domains to cope with the constantly changing market demands. In line with this, several notable technology companies, including Spotify, Uber, Apple, and Google have changed their business models from a static and linear product offering to a subscription-based model to encourage recurring, predictable, and stable revenue.

Zuora, in its recent bi-annual Subscription Economy Index (SEI), stated that the customer shift towards on-demand services has grown by more than 350% in the past seven years. For instance, Danish club FC Copenhagen introduced a subscription model in 2018, and its ticket dropout rates decreased from 10 to 3%, further driving the market growth.

Additionally, the seamless turnkey solution offered by a cloud-based solution drives the segment growth. Increasing partnerships between companies with and without cloud service organizations to provide cloud-based subscription and billing management software to SMEs drive the segment growth.  In 2017, Aria Systems, one of the prominent players, partnered with Fastly, the leading-edge cloud platform, to improve its customers’ experience by providing visibility and transparency of usage and consumption within its billing communications. On the other hand, the on-premise segment is expected to grow with a significant CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period.

The large enterprises are integrating with disruptive technologies such as Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to focus on growing subscriber base while maximizing the revenue. On the other hand, the SME segment is expected to grow with a CAGR of 17.2% during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis

North America to Hold Over a Quarter of the Market Share

Globally, North America accounted for the largest market share in 2019 and is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period.

In the U.S., increasing the adoption of mobile devices and cloud-based solutions across large enterprises and SMEs drives the regional market growth.

APAC to be exhibit the highest CAGR
