Shelfware is a term used for the software that has been purchased but never used.

Software, hardware, and computers are the essential tools for today’s businesses. Many businesses purchase these tools that exceed the normal needs. This could happen due to the need for the acquisition of discounts by making large purchases. Sometimes, companies buy very large sized software that turns out to be cumbersome and expensive to use on a regular basis hence they get shelved or locked up without ever being used.

However, there are instances where a business miscalculates the inventory needs and makes a large purchase which might go unused. There are even rarer circumstances where a software or hardware is manufactured solely for being shelved immediately. Therefore, the software, computers, and hardware that get stocked up or shelved are termed as shelfware.
