Software Suppliers in Australia Industry Market Research Report Now Available from IBISWorld

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 13, 2014

The move by software suppliers to online platforms has rendered the traditional wholesale-to-retail model redundant. Like other online industries, the Software Suppliers industry is benefiting from this development, resulting in lower costs and higher margins. However, the shift online has had a few negative consequences. This has allowed companies to easily circumvent local tax laws by rerouting their revenue to overseas tax havens. For lower tiered software, it has also resulted in the offshoring of support jobs. However, for higher tiered business software, companies have kept support onshore to ensure more rigorous product support for more complex operations. According IBISWorld industry analyst Sebastian Chia, The rise of mobile computing has also benefitted growth for the Software suppliers industry, allowing Apple and Google to quickly gain market share in a new market segment.

Over the five years through 2013-14, the Software Suppliers industry is expected to grow at an annualised 4.1%. In 2013-14, the Software Suppliers industry is expected to grow by 5.5% to reach $ 6.9 billion. Mobile trends and the rise of cloud computing is expected to continue to drive growth over the period, says Chia. Increased uptake of smartphones and mobile devices will drive growth in small app purchases. Subscription-based services will improve margins and reduce piracy concerns. Cloud computing will also allow for more seamless updates and more powerful software packages. This segment is expected to eat into the market share of traditional on-premises software suppliers over the next five years.

Over the five years through 2018-19, the Software Suppliers industry is expected to grow. The implementation of the National Broadband Network and the continued trend towards mobile and digital services will ensure steady demand for the industry’s services. The Federal Government has recently begun to look into factors affecting start-ups in Australia, which is expected to make the environment more attractive for new entrants.

The industry exhibits low levels of market share concentration. The industrys top three players are Oracle Corporation Australia Pty Limited, SAP Australia Pty Ltd and Microsoft Pty Limited.
