CIMdata, a global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the release of the CIMdata PLM Geography Analysis Report, the fifth of five modules of the CIMdata 2019 PLM Market Analysis Report Series. The MAR Series provides detailed information and in-depth analysis on the worldwide PLM market during 2018. It contains analyses of major trends and issues; revenues of leading PLM providers; and revenue analyses for geographical regions, industry sectors and historical and projected data on market growth.
The PLM market grew to $47.8 billion overall in 2018 (9.4% growth over 2017). For 2018, EMEA had 33.4% of the PLM market, with the Americas at 37.8%, and Asia-Pacific with 28.8%. The Americas region is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% to reach $26.7 billion in 2023. EMEA and AP will have CAGRs of 8.3% and 8.6%, respectively. EMEA will grow to $24.1 billion and AP will reach $21.3 billion in 2023.
“The global PLM market grew strongly in 2018, above our forecasts,” says Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata VP and research lead. “The leading PLM solution providers are consolidating their portfolios after years of acquisitions, and increasing revenues in 2018, in part, by expanding their footprints at their existing clients. Industrial companies are using PLM to enable highly collaborative, distributed, flexible design and manufacturing environments to help better manage the entire product or plant lifecycle.
“This ability is critical to all industries and only becomes more complex as smart, connected products must act as parts of larger systems. Another big driver of PLM growth is the push toward digital transformation and Industry 4.0, which must be powered by strong PLM strategies and enabling solutions in manufacturing companies. Autodesk's resurgence after completing their move to subscription licensing played a big role, particularly in segments where they are strong like mechanical computer-aided design and architecture, engineering, and construction.”
The CIMdata PLM Market Analysis Report Series is packaged as five modules:
