CIMdata Releases Series of Country-Specific PLM Market Analysis Reports

Eight country-specific PLM market analysis reports now available.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 18 October 2016—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces the release of seven additional country-specific 2016 PLM Market Analysis Reports. These new reports follow the release of the 2016 China PLM Market Analysis Report earlier this year. The CIMdata PLM MAR series presents CIMdata’s analysis of the 2015 product lifecycle management (PLM) market. The complete global analysis provides CIMdata’s perspective on PLM across a variety of industry and geographic sectors, identifies market trends, reviews investments in PLM-related software and services during 2015, and forecasts PLM investments for 2016 through 2020. It includes charts that present the overall PLM market and its various sectors as defined by CIMdata. These include collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm), tools and tools sub-sectors, and digital manufacturing.

In addition to its global PLM Market Analysis reports, CIMdata now offers eight country-specific PLM Market Analysis Reports:

  • Brazil
  • China
  • Germany
  • India
  • Japan
  • Russia
  • South Korea
  • United States

These reports focus on the PLM market in each country, including its main segments and the 2015 financial results for PLM solution and service providers. Each country report includes estimates of spending by industry segment within the country, market presence within the country, growth of the top 10 suppliers in that country, revenue by global mindshare leaders, market shares in each measured segment, and five-year forecasts.

“The solid growth in most PLM segments in 2015 was mostly washed out by strong currency effects,” according to Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Vice President of Research. “In U.S. dollars, the global PLM market only grew 2.8% in 2015, but CIMdata estimates the growth in constant currencies at 8.2%. At $6.9 billion in 2015, the United States is the largest market and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% through 2020. Germany was second in this group, with 2015 revenues of $3.25 billion and a CAGR of 4.9%. PLM revenues in Japan were $3.23 billion and a CAGR of 5.8 %. These three countries have dominated the PLM market for years, and will maintain that position. However, South Korea (at $638.6 million and a 6.8% CAGR) and the emerging PLM economies of Brazil, China, Russia, and India have great potential. CIMdata estimates the 2015 PLM revenues in Brazil were $263.5 million (7.0% CAGR), in India $553.5 million (8.4% CAGR), and in Russia $232.1 million (5.4% CAGR), and that these high growth rates (along with potential for Russia) will place them among the global PLM revenue leaders.”
