Country-Specific Product Lifecycle Management Market Analysis

The global analysis provides perspective on product lifecycle management across various industry and geographic sectors

Ann Arbor, Mich.Dec. 5, 2014CIMdata, Inc., a global product lifecycle management (PLM) strategic management consulting and research firm, announced the release of seven additional country-specific PLM Market Analysis Reports (MAR). These new reports follow the release of the 2014 China PLM Market Analysis Report earlier this year.

The CIMdata PLM MAR series presents CIMdata’s analysis of the 2013 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 2013, and forecasts PLM investments for 2014 through 2018. 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 reports, CIMdata now offers eight country-specific PLM Market Analysis Reports:

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

These reports focus on the PLM market in each country, including its main segments, and the 2013 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.

“2013 was a good year in most of the countries examined in these country reports,” according to Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s vice president of research. “At nearly $6.2 billion in 2013, the United States is the largest market and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.0 percent through 2018. Japan was second in this group, with 2013 revenues of $3.3 billion and a CAGR of 6.0 percent. PLM revenues in Germany were $2.96 billion and a CAGR of 4.6 percent. These three countries have dominated the PLM market for years, and will maintain that position.

“However, South Korea (at $478 million and a 7.6 percent CAGR), and the emerging PLM economies of Brazil, China, Russia and India have great potential. CIMdata estimates the 2013 PLM revenues in Brazil were $268 million (7.2 percent CAGR), in India $541 million (9.5 percent CAGR), and in Russia $278 million (6.5 percent CAGR), and that these high growth rates will place them among the global PLM revenue leaders.”
