AEC Confirmed as Highest Spender on Technical Applications Software

Largest Sector Grows Steadily to 2019

CAMBRIDGE, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2015) - Cambashi, a leading global industry analyst and market consulting firm, today announced the 2015 second quarter update to its market data resource, the Cambashi Market Observatories. These observatories provide a comprehensive, quantitative view of the technical applications software market, providing a sound basis for analyzing size, growth, movement and other trends to support planning at local, regional and global levels. Technical applications include CAD, CAE, CAM, GIS, PLM, and Visualisation software tools.

Growth steady
The Cambashi Industry Observatory for Q2 2015 forecasts the AEC industry (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) to be the largest market for technical applications software in 2015 with spending at USD 5.4 billion* worldwide. With a healthy 6.1% 4-year CAGR forecast in the observatory, this top position looks secure.

The 4-year CAGR is faster in Machinery (6.8%), High Tech (7.6%), Transportation (7.2%), and Aerospace and Defence (8.8%) but none is likely to reach AEC's dominant position.

*All figures are based on a USD constant currency based on 2011 prices.

Regional View

Taking a closer look, AEC is dominant in all regions. In 2015 the top three industries spending most worldwide on technical applications software are AEC, Machinery and Automotive and this is reflected in the regional figures for the Asia Pacific region and the Europe, Middle East and Africa region. By contrast in the Americas, while AEC remains top we see the Telecoms and Utility industry joining Machinery in the top three.
