Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Product Life Cycle Management (PLM) in Apparel Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global product life cycle management (PLM) in apparel market: Dassault Systèmes, Gerber Technology, Lectra, and VisualNext.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: AllCAD Technologies, Arahne, Audaces, Autodesk, BONTEX, CadCam Technology, C-Design, Centric Software, EFI Optitex, Fashion CAD, Infor, PTC, Siemens PLM Software, Tricycle, World Fashion Exchange, and Xperia.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is shift from perpetual license model to subscription model. Global PLM in apparel market will phase out of perpetual licenses completely during the forecast period, and it will shift toward periodic subscriptions and licenses. The high ROI on subscription will encourage PLM vendors to gradually reduce the sale of perpetual licenses before finally discarding them completely.”

According to the report, one driver in the market is high adoption of cloud-based PLM solutions. The availability of cloud-based PLM software is a major driver for the global PLM in apparel market. For reducing the cost of adopting PLM, many companies are adopting cloud-based PLM software. Companies such as Wipro offers cloud-based PLM services for PLM vendors such as Siemens PLM Software. This deployment through infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) helps end-users to reduce upfront costs and the total cost of ownership (TCO).

Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is concerns related to data security. The apparel market is highly competitive as well as fragmented. Most of the vendors have direct competitors, and the competition intensifies when they expand into other geographies and markets. Success in the apparel market depends on creative factors such as design, pricing, and features. If the data regarding these factors gets leaked to a competitor, it will give the competitor an advantage over the first vendor. Hence, the data managed by the PLM software must be highly secure. PLM software solutions expand the amount of data sharing among supply chain partners, thereby increasing the company’s capability, efficiency, and effectiveness.
