1. Introduction


Finite element analysis (FEA) is a numerical technique used for modeling a complex
structure. This technique is used for finding approximate solutions of partial differential
equations (PDE) as well as of integral equations.




Finite Element Analysis analyzes a large and complex structure by breaking down the
complex structure into its parts or "elements". These elements are described by a set of
relatively simpler equations, which are then joined together to provide an extremely large
set of interrelated equations that describe the behavior of the entire structure.

FEA software is utilized by various industries that deal in mechanical engineering, such as
Aeronautical, Biomechanical, and Automotive for designing and developing the products.
FEA software's applications used in this industry include estimation or prediction of
structural strength and behavior, modeling, simulation, and design optimization in various
engineering   branches.   These   engineering   branches    include   solid   mechanics,   fluid
mechanics, thermodynamics, electromagnetics, and acoustics. FEA software allows the
designers and engineers in this industry to design and access detailed visualization of
structures bend or twist, and indicates the distribution of stresses and displacements.
Furthermore, FEA helps in increasing the productivity of the industry, since it allows entire
designs to be constructed, refined, and optimized before the design is manufactured.

The FEA software vendors are now investing heavily on software updates & add-ons that
address the end user's specific requirements. Thus, these vendors are introducing new
updates & add-ons that can produce customized results. Such add-ons enable the users to
perform a range of structural and multiphysics analyses, and visualize the results in a
scalable environment. Further, with the introduction of software updates & add-ons, the
FEA vendors are now able to expand their customer base. Further, with the growth of the
Mechanical Engineering industry, the sales of FEA software is estimated to increase in the
coming years.

This report highlights the scope of the Global Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software
market, along with forecasts, trends, drivers, and challenges.
