Design, Editing & Rendering Software Publishing in the US

Revenue for the Design, Editing and Rendering Software Publishing industry is expected to increase in the five years to 2016. However, in 2016, industry revenue is expected to decrease as businesses transition from perpetual licensing to subscription models. During the period, businesses' increasing demand for product lifecycle management and computer-aided design (CAD) software, which greatly accelerates the cost-analysis and production phase of product development, has driven growth. Over the next five years, smaller operators will adopt new technologies, such as sophisticated 3D printers.

This industry develops and distributes design, picture editing, video rendering, object rendering and audio editing software. These types of software are widely used in the fields of graphic design, architecture, video game development, manufacturing and media production. The industry also includes companies that develop software add-ons. This industry does not publish software for editing textual documents (see IBISWorld report 51121a).

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
