Growth continues for the European MCAE market, concludes market study


                   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.

The report by 01Consulting ranks the top 11 MCAE software vendors in Europe, through multiple criteria, and provides analysis and ranking per industry and per country. Needless to say, the acquisitions occurred in the past 2 years have totally redesigned the rankings in Europe, within most regions and inside most industries.

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.

The above mentioned characteristic of the MCAE market leads us to expect even more mergers, acquisitions and consolidation in the MCAE market in the coming years, as it takes too much time for bigger vendors to develop their own technologies up to cash generating products; they prefer acquiring existing proven technologies which have been validated thanks to smaller vendors.
