Computer-aided design (CAD) software is being utilized to create two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) illustrations. The different modelings under 3D CAD include wireframe, surface and solid modelling. CAD is used by professionals such as designers, engineers, drafters, entertainers and architects to create meticulous sketches or technical illustrations. CAD software is getting widely adopted in various application areas such as automotive, industrial machinery, aerospace, defense, healthcare and arts.

Insights on market segments

As per the findings of the research, 3D CAD held a larger market as compared to 2D CAD technology. The demand for CAD software solutions was the highest from automotive industry and it is also expected to continue being the highest revenue contributor to the global CAD market, during the forecast period. Intermediate CAD software witnessed the highest demand as compared to other categories in 2016. However, both pro and intermediate level of CAD software are expected to grow with similar rates during the forecast period.

CAD software market to witness fastest growth in Asia-Pacific during the forecast period

Geographically, EMEA has been the largest CAD software market, whereas Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth among all regions, during the forecast period. The anticipated growth in CAD software market can be attributed to increasing digitalization, advancement in new technologies, growth in manufacturing industry, and increasing adoption of advanced rendering and simulation tools by designers in the region. Further, due to rapid technological advancements in building infrastructure, and development of precision modeling techniques in industrial machinery and healthcare applications, the region has higher propensity to adopt advanced CAD software solutions at a rapid scale.

Increasing use of CAD software in packaging machinery

The key factors propelling the growth of CAD software market include surging adoption of CAD software in packaging machinery. Packaging machinery helps to complete various phases of the packaging process including filling, wrapping, strapping and labelling. With packaging machines becoming increasingly complex with higher efficiency demand, engineers and designers are adopting CAD software to face unique mechatronic engineering challenges.

In addition, surge in demand of smart packaging is also a key factor responsible for increasing demand of CAD software in packaging machinery. Smart packaging decreases the loss and wastage of food, owing to which designers are streamlining the communication between electrical engineering controls and mechanical systems through CAD integrated product development solutions. However, availability of free and open-source CAD software may hinder the growth of the CAD software market in coming years. Small & medium enterprises are looking for freeware, leading to widespread adoption of free and open source CAD, which will obstruct the CAD software market growth in future.

3D CAD - the major revenue generator

3D CAD has been the larger revenue contributor to this industry as compared to 2D. Rapid transformations taking place in the design software industry have impacted several designers to make them more product-oriented and user-friendly. Designers are looking for more optimized and advanced design and drafting solutions to effectively manage their product designing in realistic terms, and further manage the development cycle. 3D CAD has been emerging as the need of the hour, as designers are in demand for solutions that provide innovative designing tools and higher simulation. 3D CAD providers focus on offering their solutions on ease-of-use basis, in order to cater to a large user base and growing demand for cost-effective and easily available design software solutions. In addition, the increasing use of 3D modeling and need for advanced real-time rendering is further creating opportunities for the 3D CAD software market growth.

Highly consolidated global CAD software market

The global CAD software market was consolidated in 2016, wherein the top five players accounted for around 86% of the market revenue. Autodesk, Inc. was the global market leader in 2016. The other major companies operating in this market includes Bentley Systems Inc., Dassault Systèmes, PTC, 3D Systems Inc., Aveva Group Plc, and Hexagon.
