Human Capital Management Market Size to Reach $32.84 Bn in 2028

The global Human Capital Management (HCM) market size reached USD 18.04 billion in 2020 and is expected to register a significantly steady revenue CAGR during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. Increasing demand for unified platforms for HRM is one of the major factors expected to drive market revenue growth.


Adoption of advanced HR technologies is increasing at a fast pace owing to various benefits including capability to manage attendance records automatically, arrange schedules & meeting venues, and offer on-demand video training to employees. Besides, increasing usage of cloud services across small and medium-sized businesses to efficiently manage field and office workers is expected to open up opportunities for HCM solution providers, and in turn, boost revenue growth of the market.


Data security concerns are major restraints to revenue growth of the Human Capital Management (HCM) market. Though HCM solutions provide advantages, including ease of deployment and cost-effectiveness, security problems appear if cloud-based deployment approaches are utilized. A number of small and medium-sized businesses use public cloud services, owing to low cost. This further increases risks of security breaches and cyber-attacks.
