CAD, CAM, CAE software markets challenges
The early focus on maximising the functionality of stand-alone applications (such as 3D modelling systems or finite element analysis technology) has evolved into a need to support either entire workflows (such as digital prototyping), or all activities throughout the product lifecycle, through the integration of multiple applications.
Since our analysis of the market began, the emphasis on CAx product capability has changed.
The scope of our coverage has grown along with the market and includes CAD, CAM, CAE, analysis and simulation tools, visualisation tools and more.
The user demographics are also shifting all the time. With ever-greater functionality increasingly accessible (the ‘democratisation’ of the technologies) and growing use of sophisticated technical software in emerging economies, market opportunities and threats are appearing constantly.
The complexity of the CAx market today, therefore, presents substantial challenges for vendors in terms of identifying and quantifying new opportunities for growth.
