Global 3D CAD Market 2015-2019

About CAD

CAD is an effective and efficient tool for modeling and designing products and components with ease and accuracy. These solutions enable end-users to digitally prototype their products before production. They help engineers, architects, and other design professionals draft industry-specific products to enhance the development of products. CAD solutions are widely adopted by several industries such as automotive, aerospace and defense, industrial machinery, electrical and electronics, and others. These solutions enable end-users to digitally prototype their products before production.

Technavio analysts forecast the global 3D CAD market to grow at a CAGR of 6.06% over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report Global 3D CAD Market2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global 3D CAD Market: Autodesk, Dassault Systmes, PTC and Siemens PLM Software

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: 3D Systems, BobCAD-CAM, Cadonix, CAXA, CHUO ENGINEERING, Graebert, Gstarsoft, Hitachi Sunway Information Systems, IMSI/Design, IronCAD, OnShape, Oracle, Robert McNeel & Associates, Schott Systeme, Tebis Technische Informationssysteme, YFCAD and ZWSoft

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavios team said: The 3D CAD market in the aerospace and defense industry in Canada finds an increase in M&A between VARs. VARs provide CAD software such as SolidWorks, CATIA, NX, Solid Edge, and AutoCAD to the aerospace and defense industry customers in the region. They also provide value additions such as training and support for CAD software.

According to the report, the major factor driving the growth of the global 3D CAD market is the increased switching from 2D CAD to 3D CAD by end-users. Vendors prefer 3D CAD for mechanical design as it offers benefits such as reduced product design time, automatic flattening, creation of renderings and animations for design plan reviews, efficient data management, better internal design reviews, and lower product design costs.

Further, the report states that the high cost of software licenses, maintenance, and implementation makes it difficult for SMEs to adopt the software in product development processes. This has led to the high adoption of open-source and free CAD software globally, which is negatively affecting the demand for 3D CAD.
