MCAE Europe 2007: Continuous growth.
Almost reaching �1.2B
euro, the European MCAE market is growing at 11% annually, and
represents one of the most attractive segments of the PLM market with
strong and solid development in the future, although it’s a
traditionally discrete domain, far from the aggressive sales and
marketing models seen within other PLM segments.

Smaller than the MCAD
market in terms of size, but growing much faster, the MCAE market is
experiencing less hype, and has been recording a steady growth since
almost 30 years. Probably engineers’ need for validation of the
software products which are supposed to be used to validate their own
manufactured products through simulation, test and experimentations is
a key reason why succeeding MCAE products are “senior”.
Most solvers have been available to the market for at least 10 or 15
years if not much more. This profile of the MCAE products profoundly
separates the market behaviour from those of MCAD and PDM.
