Spending on environment, health, and safety EHS software will hit $1.39 billion in North America within five years as tough action by regulators underlines the importance for companies of investing in EHS solutions, a new report from Verdantix says (please see the attached press release).

North American spending on EHS software will hit $1.39 billion by 2027

The report from the leading independent research and advisory firm estimates the EHS software market in North America will expand to $810 million this year and grow by around 11% for the next five years. Its Market Size and Forecast: EHS Software 2022 -2027 (Global) report estimates North America makes up 51% of the global market which it forecasts will expand to $1.57 billion this year and continue to grow at around 11.9% a year to reach $2.7 billion by 2027. Growth is being achieved despite fears of worldwide recession and economic uncertainty given the impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, spiralling costs of goods and rising inflation and interest rates,

Its report forecasts the North American market will continue to dominate global EHS software spending even though spending in emerging regions has been growing at a faster rate for some time. The number of oil and gas, chemicals and construction firms in North America mean it will remain the biggest market. However another factor which will drive spending and technology innovation is continuing tough action by regulators – a recent example is discount retailer, Dollar Tree which faces potential penalties of $1.2 million after inspections by the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) uncovered a series of workplace safety violations. Globally the sector is attracting private equity investment which is also helping to expand the EHS software market, and the market is benefiting from increasing digitization in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.
