CIMdata Releases New Country-Specific PLM Market Analysis Reports

Three new country-specific PLM market analyses now available.

ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 12 December 2017—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm, announces the release of three additional country-specific 2017 PLM Market Analysis Reports—reports for France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. These new reports follow the release of eight other country-specific PLM Market Analysis Reports earlier this year.

The CIMdata PLM MAR series presents CIMdata’s analysis of the 2016 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 2016, and forecasts PLM investments for 2017 through 2021. 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 currently offers eight country-specific PLM Market Analysis Reports:

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

To this list, CIMdata has now added reports on the PLM market in France, Italy, and the United Kingdom.

These reports focus on the PLM market in each country, including its main segments and the 2016 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.

“2016 was a good year for the PLM Economy, with 5% growth and few of the currency effects that impacted our reporting in previous years,” according to Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Vice President. “At $7.2 billion in 2016, the United States is the largest market and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.9% through 2021. Japan revenues were $3.68 billion and a CAGR of 5.8 %. PLM revenues in Germany were $3.45 billion and a CAGR of 5.6%. These three countries have dominated the PLM market for years, and will maintain that position. However, South Korea (at $608 million and a 5.8% CAGR) and the emerging PLM economies of Brazil, China, Russia, and India have great potential. CIMdata estimates the 2016 PLM revenues in Brazil were $267.7 million (4.1% CAGR), in India $563 million (7.6% CAGR), and in Russia $246 million (3.5% CAGR), and that these high growth rates (along with potential for Russia) will place them among the global PLM revenue leaders.” Mr. Przybylinski continued, “For calendar year 2016 CIMdata is adding three countries to our roster of country reports: France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. For 2016 CIMdata estimates PLM revenues in France at $1.48 billion with a CAGR of 5.8%, Italy at $526 million and 5.7%, and the United Kingdom at $1.01 billion and 6.0%.”
