Research and Markets announced the " Global Product Data Management Software Market 2010-2014" report. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is faster time to market of a product. The Global PDM Software market has been witnessing integrated product data management software with enterprise applications. However, the lack of knowledge and participation by supply chain partners could pose a challenge to the growth of this market. This report, which covers the Americas as well as the EMEA and APAC regions, indicates that the market is being driven by the proven ability of this software to improve quality.
According to the report, PDM software provides solutions that connect different stages of a product development cycle. The report also highlights that the high investment required is hindering the growth of this market. However, with the implementation of this software, organizations have been witnessing reduced product recall rates. This market is also marked by the emergence of web-based product management. Key vendors in this market include SAP AG, Siemens PLM Software Inc., Parametric Technology Corp., and Oracle Corp.

MSC Software Corp. announced that The Hadley Group, one of Europe's largest privately owned cold rolled steel manufacturers, has invested in Marc and Patran to simulate their patented UltraSTEEL process, as well as for press tool design, product development, and other ancillary processes. The UltraSTEEL process was first developed in 1984 and results in stronger roll formed products, thereby allowing the use of lighter sections. To enhance understanding of UltraSTEEL, The Hadley Group undertook a research project in 2009 in collaboration with the University of Wolverhampton. To support this project, the team evaluated a
number of commercial CAE software systems for advanced nonlinear simulation technology before deciding on MSC Marc and Patran.
