Global Interior Design Software Market 2017-2021
About Interior Design Software
Interior design software is a part of the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) software and is used by architects, engineers, and contractors to design the interior part of a building. The global interior design software market is segmented into two based on application:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Interior Design Software Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global interior design software market: Autodesk, Dassault Systèmes, and Trimble
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: SmartDraw, Decolabs, Roomtodo, Space Designer 3D, Planner 5D, Home Hardware Stores, and RoomSketcher.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increase in demand from APAC. It is expected that there will be an increase in the growth of the construction markets in China and India in the forecast period. The growth will be mainly from the infrastructure sector and buildings such as airports, rail, roads, and bridges. The Indian construction sector will be driven by the growing need for residential buildings in urban areas of the country such as New Delhi, Mumbai, and Bangalore. High-end residential buildings are built by taking the interior design into consideration before the initial plans are drawn. Other countries that will drive the demand for interior design software in APAC is Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea, Malaysia, and Japan.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Better interior design and decoration. Interior design software allows architects to check the quality of interior settings at an early stage of the designing process. It allows architects to monitor, access, and identify any disparity between the proposed design and the real building. With this software, architects can take preventive measures, thus reducing the need for rebuilding and remodeling. Most of the interior design software includes a comprehensive list of furniture such as doors, windows, and beds and tables of distinctive designs. This helps the designer to get an accurate model of the room. For user's convenience, many vendors offer both free and paid software. For instance, SketchUp by Trimble is available in two versions, namely SketchUp Make (free version) and SketchUp Pro (paid version).
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Interoperability issues with interior design software. Compatibility problem with different software applications by several interior design software vendors increases the problem in interoperability. Lack of interoperability makes it difficult for employees within a company working in different business units to share information. Output of an interior design file may not be supported by other AEC software, which may leave end-users unsatisfactory and can impede the growth of the market. One of the major interoperability issues faced by the users is the different output formats used by the various software. Most often the output file from software is not compatible with other interior design software.
