Published on

635 CAD users & decision makers across a range of company sizes and industries worldwide took part in this annual online survey conducted in Nov, 2014.

Data comparison is with the previous survey conducted in Dec, 2013 survey.

15 Topics and their perceived importance, actual and future usage related to CAD were captured, enabling us to identify key trends in the CAD sector now and over the next five years.

The survey was managed from Business Advantage Group offices in London and San Francisco, drawing respondents from our in-house data repository of over 500,000 CAD/CAM users and decision makers and other data sources.

Forecast: Future predicted growth potential is limited, due to majority already using 3D modelling. Sectors: Generally high current usage across industry sectors, and similarly high usage across regions and countries. Co. Size: Small companies (1-50 employees) are less likely to be current users (although 7 in 10 still use). KEYFACTS 15
  15. 15. Sector: The AEC sector is predicted to close the gap on the Manufacturing sector for usage of 3D modelling. Forecast: Whilst currently Manufacturing companies are more likely to use 3D modelling, growth of 3D modelling in the AEC sector is predicted to be up to 4 times higher than Manufacturing, over the next year and 3-5 years. KEYFACTS 3D Modelling by Key Sectors 2015 IMPORTANCE MEAN SCORE: OVERALL 8.5, MANUFACTURING 9.1, AEC 8.0 Base: Importance score is based on all aware of this particular CAD Trend in 2015 (n=557) Base: Usage score is based on everybody (2014: All-409, Manuf-97, AEC-157, 2015: All-635, Manuf-211, AEC-192) 64% 77% 81% 83% 70% 81% 83% 84% 66% 72% 78% 82% Use now in-house (2014) Use now in-house (2015) Use now, and plan to use in-house within 1 year Use now, and plan to use in-house within 3-5 years Total Manufacturing AEC Predicted 1 yr. inc.

  17. 17. Observations: The Manufacturing sector will continue to dominate in usage of Product Data Management. Forecast: Although AEC usage of PDM is predicted to almost double in the next 3-5 years compared to 2015, this is from a low base level, and will still fall significantly behind usage in the Manufacturing sector, which is predicted to grow by almost a third in the next 3-5 years.

  45. 45. Note on Analysis  This study has been conducted in consecutive years. To ensure comparability and so that any changes in the results are true and not a result of different sample profiles, the 2015 CAD Trends data was adjusted by geographic region to be internationally representative and weighted by industry sector within the CAD market  CAD Trend results were reviewed by individual sector and consolidated across all sectors. For the consolidated results, sectors within each tier were weighted equally:  Tier 1: AEC and Manufacturing  Tier 2: Process & Plant and Other  Tier 3: Education, Government and Utilities 46 YEAR-ON-YEAR SURVEY SAMPLE
  46. 46. Technical Survey Information  In looking at future usage, we have made the assumption that current usage will continue, therefore future usage is an incremental addition to current usage  All differences mentioned within the report are statistically significant at the 95% confidence level  Weighting factors applied as follows:  Tier 1: AEC and Manufacturing – 34% weight  Tier 2: Process & Plant and Other – 10% weight  Tier 3: Education, Government and Utilities – 4% weight  All bases shown in the report are un weighted – demonstrating the actual sample size, not its weighted equivalent 47
