Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global FEA in the Automotive Sector 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global FEA in the Automotive Sector: ANSYS, Dassault Systèmes, Siemens PLM Software and MSC Software
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Altair, Aspen, Autodesk, CD-adapco, COMSOL, ESI, Exa and NEi
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The outsourcing of FEA pre-processing jobs to APAC is occurring in large volumes. In a developed country, , FEA pre-processing to solve a linear static problem accounts for 45% of the overall investment and, in general, FEA pre-processing accounts for 65% of the overall investment. The availability of a low-cost skilled workforce in APAC is leading to the the shift of FEA pre-processing to the region. In countries such as India and China, the cost reduces by more than half.”
According to the report, the increased need to provide quality products in a short duration has led to an increase in the demand for FEA software. FEA software helps to improve the time-to-market by reducing the product development cycle and testing time. It improves the speed of the product design cycle and produces reliable and cost-effective products by reducing the analysis time.
Further, the report states that the market faces challenges due to the availability of free open-source FEA. SMEs lack capital so they tend to invest in FEA, which has led to the wide adoption of free or open-source FEA globally, which in turn has hampered the growth of the market.
