Design, Editing & Rendering Software Publishing in the US

The adoption of new technology such as 3D printers by larger manufacturers and niche hobbyists has spurred Design, Editing and Rendering Software Publishing industry demand for computer-aided design software during the period to 2018.

This new model, also called software as a service (SaaS), enables customers to pay a monthly or yearly fee to access industry software via the internet. Over the five years to 2023, revenue growth will accelerate as companies continue to shift to a subscription-based revenue model, which will increasingly gain traction and popularity with customers. Additionally, the increased adoption of new technologies such as 3D printing, 3D television and movies and virtual reality will spur demand for design, editing and rendering software.
