From a supply chain perspective, it is hard to "tag" the revenues associated with supply chain risk as a "space," though supply chain risk has emerged as a most important issue to be addressed by firms.
Sectors within include:
- Risk transfer - various insurance products such as product liability, reputation risk, supplier failure, etc.
- Trade finance and other financial instruments
- Audit, inspection and monitoring services of the supply chain
- Weather, geopolitical and other risk factors monitoring SaaS-subscriber services
- Consulting - business continuity, risk assessment and process change to increase resiliency
- Education for compliance, regulation and continuity best practices
- ID and authentication technologies, as well as trace and track
- Analytic software for predictive analytics, and risk avoidance.
