Increasing Development of Smart Factories to Shape Future of Global CAD Market in Industrial Machinery

Published Date : Dec 13, 2016

Albany, NY, Dec 13, 2016: The report, titled “Global CAD Market in Industrial Machinery Industry 2016–2020” provides essential insights into various critical aspects of the market including its dynamics, competitive landscape, and geographical segmentation.

As per the findings of the report, the global market for CAD in industrial machinery is poised to exhibit a CAGR of more than 7% from 2016 to 2020. The increasing adoption of computer-aided design (CAD) in the packaging industry is driving the market. Since packaging has a huge impact on the consumer’s purchasing decision, it forms a crucial part of the marketing mix. In addition, the rising demand for packaged food products is leading to the increasing use of packaging machinery items, which are designed using the CAD software. Moreover, the increasing involvement of inspection agencies in product development and the growing government initiatives to promote the development of the machine tools sector are positively influencing the growth of the global market.

However, the threat of piracy associated with the use of the software is inhibiting the growth of the market. CAD is an advanced software and requires skills to operate it. Thus, the lack of workforce with adequate technical skills is hampering the growth of the market. This factor is compounded by the high cost of training. Furthermore, the availability of open-source and free CAD software is restraining the market from realizing its full potential.
