Computer Aided Design (CAD) Software Market in China 2008-2012 - PDF

VIEWS: 60 PAGES: 18

Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of a wide range of computer-based tools that assist engineers, architects and other design professionals in their designing activities. It enables easy modeling, creation, and viewing of 3D objects or floor plans from different angles on a computer or a display device. Over the previous decades, the Chinese CAD software market has witnessed a consistent year-on-year growth rate. Despite the recession, investments in CAD software continued during the early 2008, which slightly dipped during the late 2008 and 2009. However, a rapid recovery in the CAD software market is expected during the first half of 2010. This is because, on the global level, the companies are likely to recover from the recession and invest in IT solutions that will provide them sustainable business advantage and profitability. The fast growth rate of the Chinese CAD software industry can be attributed to the initiatives taken by the governments. Favorable government policies and encouragement by the Chinese government to conduct basic scientific research have played a key role in the growth of this industry. The report by TechNavio Insights forecasts the size of the Computer Aided Design (CAD) Software market in China over the period 2008-2012. Further, it discusses the key market trends, drivers and challenges of the CAD Software Market in China, and profiles some of the key vendors of this market.

1. Introduction
Computer-aided design (CAD) is the use of a wide range of computer-based tools that
assist engineers, architects and other design professionals in their design activities. It
enables easy modeling, creation, and viewing of 3D objects or floor plans from different
angles on a computer or a display device.


Over the previous decades, the Chinese CAD software market has witnessed a
consistent year-on-year growth rate. Despite the recession, investments in CAD
software continued during the early 2008, which slightly dipped during the late 2008 and
2009. However, a rapid recovery in the CAD software market is expected during the first
half of 2010. This is because, on the global level, the companies are likely to recover
from the recession and invest in IT solutions that will provide them sustainable business
advantage and profitability.


This report will highlight the scope of CAD software in China along with the future
forecasts, trends, drivers and challenges for CAD software.

3. China CAD Software Market Trends
Following are the key trends in the CAD Software market in China:
     Mergers and Acquisitions, Partnerships: With the increase in applications of
      CAD software, the requirement of specialized tools and niche technology
      providers have also witnessed a rise in demand. Key players such as AutoDesk,
      Dassault Systems, and Ansys are acquiring/partnering with niche companies in
      order to come up with specialized products and services. Also, a trend towards
      consolidation of the once fragmented engineering software industry is clearly
      evident from the developments, acquisitions and outsourcing activities that have
      taken place since the last couple of years. In 2007/08, there were a number of
      acquisitions, such as UGS’ acquisition by Siemens; MatrixOne by Dassault
      Systemes; Agile by Oracle; and Arbortext by PTC. In the Asian market, Hanna
      Strategies, which has development centers in China, was acquired by Autodesk in
      January 2008. Further, Ansys acquired Ansoft, which derives a significant portion
      of its total revenue from sales in Asia.
     Solution to SMBs: The CAD software vendors are trying to exploit the huge
      SMBs (Small and Medium Businesses) market available in China. SMBs often
      encounter complexities in different phases of their operations (such as concept
      development, design, en
