Business Drivers, Policy Issues, Enterprise Adoption Patterns,Competitive Landscape, and Market Forecasts

The considerable attention to global warming coupled with an increasing focus on energy efficiency and cost have laid the groundwork for an emerging carbon management market. Although it is a relatively small and nascent market that the Author estimates will reach more than $380 million worldwide in 2009 in terms of spending for software and external services, it is a rapidly growing market. This market is forecast to experience an aggressive 40.2% CAGR through 2017. Between 2009 and 2010 Pike Research believes that the carbon management software and services market will grow by as much as 73% on a global basis.

There are many factors contributing to this robust growth rate, but the increasingly tough regulatory environment with respect to GHG emissions has had a significant impact. During the last couple of years the demand for carbon management has been driven by a slew of different regulations requiring organizations to reduce their carbon footprint. In particular, this has been the case for most of the advanced economies in Western Europe and Asia Pacific. Although North America has been lagging other nations, it is quickly catching up. Practically every industry sector is affected in varying degrees by the different market forces, but the energy, manufacturing, government, and retail sectors have so far experienced most pressure to adopt carbon management, especially from a regulatory, supply chain, brand equity and cost efficiency standpoint.

This report examines global and regional carbon management trends, and forecasts market size and growth prospects by region and industry through 2017. In addition, the report assesses the competitive landscape, including SWOT analysis of major software and service vendors providing carbon management solutions and service offerings. The report also provides insights from interviews of large enterprise end users about their carbon management practices, viewpoints, and plans.
