Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global CAD Market in Industrial Machinery Industry 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global CAD market in the industrial machinery industry: Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and Siemens PLM Software.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: BricsCAD, Encore, Graebert, RealCAD, SolveSpace, and TurboCAD.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Developments in CAD modeling is gaining traction in the global CAD market in the industrial machinery industry. Modeling is basically a set of rules that help during computer modeling of 3D solids. There are mainly two types of modeling in CAD which includes parametric modeling and direct modeling. Parametric modeling uses parameters to define a particular model. Direct modeling allows the designer to get direct access to the geometry of the product, allowing complete manipulation and editing, with least concerns about features and dimensions.”

According to the report, the role of CAD in packaging machinery will drive growth in the market. Packaging machinery are special types of machinery that help with packaging products before their dispatch for storage and distribution networks. A major driver in the global packaging machinery market is the increase in demand for smart packaging. This demand is mainly witnessed in the food industry, where hygiene is of great importance. Smart packaging reduces the loss and wastage of food. The vendors are, therefore providing CAD software (SOLIDWORKS) that enables engineers to design machinery, conveying, and filling process.

Further, the report states that Piracy issues of PLM software such as CAD are a major challenge for vendors, leading to a decrease in their revenue. The sharing of a purchasing license of a single end-user with other end-users is also considered as software piracy.
