The Engineering Software market by software covers CAD, CAM, CAE, AEC, and EDA. CAD software generates the largest revenue in the software segment. CAD software serves as the specific purpose of modifying and designing of components and products before they are manufactured. Computer-aided design is a software package that enables engineers, architects, and design professionals in preparing framework and blueprint for industry-specific products. This engineering software can be further forficate into 3D and 2D Computer Aided Designing software. The 2D CAD is used for designing and drawing of planograms and frameworks in two dimensions; on the other hand, 3D CAD enables access to the tools that assist in designing three-dimensional models and structures on computers. 

Major application segments consist of plant layout, product design & testing, drafting & 3D modeling. Remaining relatively small application segments, including 3D printing, project management, enterprise resource planning, and knowledge management, have been clubbed in ‘Others’ due to notably small market value.

However, the drafting and 3D modeling application segment are expected to appear as the fastest and most promising applications. There is a high demand for 3D modeling in multiple fields such as media and entertainment, construction activities, textbook publishing, mechanical, civil, and earth science engineering is expected to fuel market growth. 

By geography, the global engineering software market is shared between North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and the Rest of the World. North America dominated the segment of the design software market in 2019. This trend of North American dominance is expected to continue over the forecast period. Furthermore, the high adoption of cloud-based storage and working software by large enterprises, coupled with the introduction of innovative tools & applications for various tablets and smartphones, is expected to fuel regional market growth.

Globally, the Engineering Software Market is growing at a CAGR of 7.7% during the forecast period of 2020-2026. The factors stimulating this market growth are increased automation in the industries and the increasing evolution in the construction and infrastructure sector to reduce construction errors and also in the production process.
