CIMdata Releases 2011 PLM Market Industry Analysis Report

Ann Arbor, Michigan, October 20, 2011—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM management consulting and research firm announces the release of the CIMdata 2011 PLM Market Industry Analysis Report, the fourth of five modules of the CIMdata PLM Market Analysis Report Series. The MAR Series provides detailed information and in-depth analysis on the worldwide PLM market during 2010. It contains analyses of major trends and issues, leading PLM suppliers, revenue analyses for geographical regions, industry sectors, and historical and projected data on market growth. The CIMdata PLM Market Analysis Report Series is packaged as five modules:

1.  The CIMdata 2011 Executive PLM Market Report provides an overview of CIMdata’s complete global analysis. It includes key charts on PLM market investment statistics through 2010, forecasts of investments for 2011 through 2015, and a summary of PLM suppliers’ performance in 2010.

2.  The CIMdata 2011 PLM Industry Review and Trends Report is mainly qualitative in nature, and focuses on key issues facing the global PLM ecosystem of solution providers and end user organizations. It highlights changes that occurred in 2010, what effects those changes may have in the short and medium term, and what is on the horizon in the years to come.

3.  The CIMdata 2011 PLM Market and Solution Supplier Analysis Report details measures of and forecasts for the overall PLM market and key segments, including Tools, cPDm, and Digital Manufacturing. The Tools section has additional details on sub-segments, including MCAD, NC, S&A, EDA, and AEC. It also includes CIMdata’s estimates of PLM solution supplier revenues in these segments and sub-segments for 2011 through 2015.

4.  The CIMdata 2011 PLM Market Geographic Analysis Report provides an additional view of the 2010 market results, by major geography. CIMdata’s 2010 estimates and market forecasts for PLM and the major PLM market segments are provided for the Americas, EMEA, and Asia-Pacific. In addition, the report includes estimates and forecasts for the cPDm segment within specific European and Asia-Pacific countries and regions.

5.  The CIMdata 2011 PLM Market Industry Analysis Report provides an industry segmentation view of the 2010 market results. CIMdata’s 2010 estimates and market forecasts for mainstream PLM and cPDm are provided for eight different industry sectors: aerospace and defense; automotive and other transportation; electronics/telecommunications; fabrication and assembly; process-packaged goods; process—petrochemical; utilities; and construction, infrastructure and shipbuilding.

“After a down year in 2009, the global PLM market came back strong in 2010,” according to Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Director of Research, “Growth was spread across almost all industry sectors tracked by our annual market analysis. Automotive and Aerospace and Defense, the two sectors that have invested heavily in mainstream PLM over the years grew the slowest. The highest growth rates for mainstream PLM were in industries that are ramping up their PLM investments, like Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG), Food & Beverage, and Petrochemical.  Many of the large PLM solutions suppliers are looking to these sectors for growth in the coming years, and should be able to build on this growth going forward.”

This report focuses on spending in the PLM market by industry sector, and includes mainstream PLM and collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm) estimates for each sector. It is important to note that all data and revenue information presented in this report are based on CIMdata’s estimates of the PLM market and the revenue performance of the PLM solution suppliers.

The CIMdata PLM Market Analysis Report Series is available as a five-module set or each module can be purchased separately. It is also available as part of the CIMdata PLM Community Gold Membership. Further details and pricing information about the report and Community Memberships are available at
