Employment Observatory – Software Industry Profession Database
The total potential market opportunity for engineering software
Is there still opportunity for growth for engineering software? Where are those future growth opportunities?
While traditional engineering software tools have catered for the 10 million architects and designers worldwide, and newer capabilities have enabled the 44 million engineers and engineering technicians to refine product specifications, there are many occupations engaged in supporting the delivery of engineering programmes that have been less well served. Cambashi’s Employment Observatory is an invaluable tool to establish market potential for the various engineering software segments in defined industry sectors and territories.
