Forecast Summary

The total revenue generated by T&E management software will reach $16 billion globally by 2027, up from $8.7 billion in 2022. It is predicted that the risk of expense fraud will increase as hybrid working grows, with remote work offering the ideal environment for employees to submit fraudulent reports.
  • It is anticipated that growing risks of employee expense fraud will drive demandfor T&E management solutions. Manual T&E management practices are unable todetect expense fraud and incapable of identifying all cases of fraudulent activitydue to the volume of expense reports submitted.
  • In contrast, dedicated T&E management solutions are capable of detecting andresolving numerous varieties of expense fraud, such as duplicate claims, byleveraging AI (Artificial Intelligence) to detect new methods of fraud; savingbusinesses time and money. Given these benefits are often overlooked, JuniperResearch recommends that vendors in the market prioritise the development ofAI-based anti-expense fraud capabilities and demonstrating these benefits whenmarketing their solutions.
  • Additionally, following the COVID-19 pandemic, remote working has becomeincreasingly commonplace. The report found that this has led to a rise in expensefraud as less supervision and outdated manual T&E management processesenable employees to more readily submit fraudulent expense reports.
  • Accordingly, vendors in the market must provide a streamlined solution thatautomates the creation of expense reports and reduces the administrative burdenon employees who work remotely.
