CIMdata Releases Executive PLM Market Report

First module of the 2023 PLM MAR Series

Published: Monday, July 24, 2023 - 11:00

(CIMdata: Ann Arbor, MI) -- CIMdata, a leading global product life cycle management (PLM) consulting and research firm, has released its “2023 Executive PLM Market Report.” This report provides an executive-level view of CIMdata’s comprehensive analysis of the PLM market, with summary charts on the overall market and on specific PLM solution segments (including the chart below). It also includes perspectives on current trends in the PLM industry and how they may affect current suppliers and investments.

The PLM economy, as measured in the PLM market analysis, has continued to grow in 2022. In calendar year 2022, the PLM market grew to just over $66.6 billion overall (10% growth over 2021).

“The PLM market saw really strong results in 2022, beating our forecast,” says Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata vice president. “Electronic design automation (EDA) led the pack with a year-on-year growth of 12.7%, driven by market leaders Cadence and Synopsys. Autodesk’s results also contributed to strong growth in architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) at 8.3%, a segment hurt in our analysis by the 11% drop of the euro against the U.S. dollar. Finally, simulation and analysis (S&A) returned to strong growth at 10.9%. We expect the move toward smart, connected products to continue growth in S&A, software development tools, and electronic design automation (EDA).”

This report is the first of five modules of the CIMdata 2023 Market Analysis Report Series to be released. The MAR Series provides detailed information and in-depth analysis on the worldwide PLM market during calendar year 2023. It contains analyses of major trends and issues; revenues of leading PLM providers; and revenue analyses for geographical regions, industry sectors, and historical and projected data on market growth.
