Computer Integrated Manufacturing (CIM) to Bolster the Demand for CAE

Computer-aided engineering (CAE) market is projected to hit a market value of US$ 13.21 Bn by 2026, with a CAGR of 10.36% across the forecast period. Majorly directed by Asia Pacific, the CAE market is driven by the growing trend of the computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM) approach. This process is a vital part of the modern manufacturing approach with integrated controlling systems to standardize the complete production process from initial design to final delivery. CAE is an inevitable part of the CIM approach, as it simplifies the analysis process that executes overall operations in a much more efficient way. While CAE demonstrated a major stimulus in several industrial sectors, it proved radical in the product designing process. The major benefit of CAE in the manufacturing process includes added product analysis flexibility enabling designers to evade costly gaffes in the production process. The use of CAE for real-time simulation and animation prompted development activities into a more profound analysis. A wide array of end-use applications of CAE ensure a sturdy surge for the market across the forecast period.

Market Synopsis

Automotive Segment Leads the Market & Accounted to Retain Its Dominant Position

The automotive segment leads the overall Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) market, accounting for close to 1/3rd of the global market value. The automotive industry steadily seeks a solution that reduces the time and cost of the development of vehicles. Subsiding time-to-market and the number of prototypes has increased the penetration of CAE methodologies in the automotive industry. One of the vital benefits of CAE has been to reduce the cost of human efforts spent on analyzing changes made to vehicle designs. Enhanced efficiency and flexibility offered by CAE in product development would ensure strong growth for the automotive segment throughout the forecast period.

Steady Growth of End-use Industries to Ensure Dominant Position of Asia Pacific Region in CAE Market throughout the Forecast Period

Presently, the Asia Pacific market accounts for more than 25% of the global Computer Aided Engineering (CAE) market value. The region is also set to exhibit the highest CAGR across the forecast period, primarily due to the steady development of end-use application industries. The region is referred to as the leading light vehicle manufacturer, with countries such as Japan, China, and Korea comprising over 37 Mn units of worldwide production, comprising around 42% of the automobile production worldwide. Furthermore, in 2017, the construction sector of Asia Pacific registered over US$ 4,800 Bn. Growing penetration of automation in the manufacturing process paves the way for the CAE approach across the region. Thus, growth in several other end-use industries certainly stimulates the CAE market across the region.
