Which Machinery Sector Spends Most on PLM in Poland?

This week’s chart, which takes data from the Cambashi Industry Observatory, breaks down expenditure on Technical Applications (AEC, CAD, CAM, CAE, GIS, PLM and Visualization) in the Machinery industry in Poland.

In this industry, the majority of the expenditure is on PLM applications

The lowdown

Poland has been one of the fastest-growing economies in Europe.

Close to Germany, and able to manufacture inexpensive parts and equipment, Poland is one of Europe’s manufacturing centres.

This chart examines Poland’s Machinery industry.

As you can see, this industry covers not just industrial equipment, but also electrical machinery and general metal products.

Although it does not include Automotive-specific parts suppliers, it is still an important part of Poland’s manufacturing industry.

Manufacture of fabricated metal products is what Poland is famous for – supplying nuts and bolts to Germany’s original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

Even so, it only ranks second in this chart, behind Manufacture of motors and electricity distribution apparatus.

The motors in this sector are electric motors, but the sector also includes electricity generators. The electricity switching equipment is for distribution-level voltages. So the sector is another that mainly supplies parts to other sectors.

Electric motors to fit into other equipment and electric switching equipment to be used for power generation and transmission projects.


There is a broad spread of expenditure across a lot of sectors, with 13 spending more than $0.5 million on PLM software in 2015. Many of those sectors – including agricultural machinery, construction machinery and machine tools – are OEM sectors in their own rights.

This suggests that Poland is becoming a major force in the European machinery industry.
