ANN ARBOR, Michigan, 11 May 2011—CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM consulting and research firm announces the availability of its 2011 China Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Market Analysis Report. This report provides detailed information and in-depth analysis of the People’s Republic of China’s (“China”) rapidly-evolving Mainstream PLM market. The report discusses the major China PLM trends and issues, purchase investments in PLM software and services, PLM adoption in various industry sectors, and market growth forecasts that pertain to this important and quickly expanding economic region. This report also provides insight into PLM market dynamics within the region and the revenue performance of the leading China-based and international PLM solution suppliers based elsewhere. This report represents a joint collaborative effort of CIMdata and China-based e-Works Manufacturing Information Technology Co., Ltd.
Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata Director of Research said, “While the global PLM market returned to growth in 2010, the Chinese PLM market came back even stronger. In 2010, the Chinese Mainstream PLM market grew 16.2%, and in 2011 the growth rate of the Chinese Mainstream PLM market is forecasted to be 16.5%.” Chinese industries that are heavily investing in PLM include aerospace, automotive, high-tech, and mechanical machinery.
Growth of the Mainstream PLM Market in China—2008 through 2015
Global PLM solution suppliers continue to invest in China and are expanding their partner networks and growing their customer bases. The leading international PLM suppliers include Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and Siemens PLM Software, and these three firms accounted for just over 51% of mainstream PLM revenues in China during 2010. This shows just how strong China-based PLM suppliers have become. “Just as in other industries, local firms are growing and developing solutions tailored to China. While at an early stage, the potential of these firms should not be underestimated,” stated Peter Bilello, CIMdata President. “The future looks bright for PLM in China. The major global PLM solution suppliers improve their execution in China over the next several years. Also, the China-based PLM solution suppliers will further enhance market growth. The China-based PLM suppliers are adding solutions and consulting capabilities that should allow them to continue their rapid expansion,” he added.
CIMdata designed this report to be a valuable source of information to support business and market planning by PLM solution suppliers that are targeting China, as well as industrial companies within China who would like to understand the PLM competitive landscape. Further details including pricing information about the report are available on CIMdata’s website for publications.
