ANN ARBOR, Michigan, August 4, 2010— Consulting and research firm CIMdata announces the availability of its annual Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Market Analysis Report. The report provides detailed information and in-depth analysis on the worldwide PLM market. 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. Additionally, the 2010 PLM Market Analysis Report presents a multi-faceted analysis of the 2009 PLM market covering Tools (e.g., CAD, simulation and analysis, etc.), collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm), and Digital Manufacturing.
2009 was a difficult year with the global economic downturn. However, Ken Amann, CIMdata Director of Research said, “While the market declined 10% during 2009, we saw definite improvement during the latter half of the year. That trend has continued into 2010. This analysis provides our perspective on PLM across a variety of industry and geographic sectors. We reviewed investments in PLM-related software and services during 2009, and forecasted PLM investments for 2010 through 2014.” The forecasts are based on data available through the first quarter of 2010. “It is important to note that the data and revenue information presented in this report are CIMdata’s estimates of the PLM revenue performance of the various suppliers.” Mr. Amann added.
The PLM Market Analysis Report comes in two modules. ‘Module 1’ presents CIMdata’s overview of the PLM market, overall market statistics, and an analysis of PLM suppliers’ performance in 2009 and CIMdata’s overall forecast for 2010 through 2014. ‘Module 2’ builds on the information presented in Module 1 by providing detailed 2009 geographic and industry revenue results and forecasts for 2010 to 2014. The PLM Market Analysis Report is sold as a stand-alone report or as part of the CIMdata PLM Community Gold membership. Further details and pricing information about the report are available at here.
