This inventory management system is characterized by comprising a shelf 10, a marker 11, an image acquisition means 12, a storage means, an analysis means, and an alert means. The shelf 10 is a shelf on which an object 20 to be managed is placed. The marker 11 is disposed in a portion of the shelf 10 which is obstructed from the image acquisition means 12 by the placed object 20 to be managed.
