Many predictions were made in the growing field of supply chain management at the turn of the twenty-first century to establish the state of key concepts in the field as well as to motivate discussion, help guide resource allocation and implementation initiatives, and spark research to enhance understanding of many revolutionary supply chain management topics. The environment for supply chain activities has changed considerably since 2000, and many experts predict that even more significant change will occur over the next decade. This article will review industry progress on a set of 10 megatrends originally proposed in 2000, as well as extrapolate what the state of these trends may be over the next decade. In addition, new trends are identified that were not yet on the horizon in 2000, but will likely be influential in driving the changing supply chain over the next 10 years.
