Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling

The Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling (EDS/BIM) global market research study focuses on engineering design, analysis, and project management software and associated services used in the creation and construction of physical plants and infrastructure projects. The study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. It is available in multiple editions including worldwide, all regions, and most major countries.

End Users Face Project and Data Management Challenges

Many independent contractors and businesses are involved in the creation or upgrade of plants and infrastructure.  Poor access to project information and engineering documentation remains a chronic problem – particularly for most large construction projects.  Siloed groups cause poor business processes, missing or outdated engineering information, and inefficiencies. 

Recently, some CapEx projects for both plant design and infrastructure have become large, complex, lengthy, expensive, and high risk, needing extensive government permits and being scrutinized by non-government organizations (NGOs).  This has driven a concerted effort to focus on efficiency, cost containment, and collaboration across the design and build portion of the asset’s lifecycle. 

Engineering Design Software Market Growth Driver

engineering design softwareWith digital twins, engineering design software now has an increasingly important role throughout the entire lifecycle of plant assets.  Project digital twins support collaboration and management of engineering information during the design and construction of plants, and the operate and maintain portion of the asset lifecycle.

The need to control a variety of risks continues to be a significant element of project planning, which drives earlier and broader adoption of engineering design software.  Often, the execution of massive projects requires the forming of joint ventures or partnerships of engineering, construction, and owner organizations.  The joining of disparate stakeholders necessitates the usage of the latest generation of EDS to avoid version incompatibilities and for efficient project execution.

Building Information Modeling Market Growth Driver

Like plants, infrastructure projects are also adopting project digital twins for collaboration and management of engineering information across the lifecycle of the asset.  For the infrastructure/BIM portion of the design software market, the current high level of market growth is a result of two types of need.

  • In developed regions, many infrastructure assets need renewal, added capacity, or replacement.  Infrastructure engineering activity is driven by the need to maintain, rebuild, or replace existing assets.
  • In developing regions, new infrastructure is needed to satisfy the needs of the growing economy and for improvements in the standard of living.

Advanced geospatial technology allows users to accurately map any part of the physical landscape.  Building new generations of smart cities will depend heavily on these technologies.
