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

The Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling (EDS/BIM) market focuses on engineering design, analysis, and project management software and associated services used in projects for design and construction of physical plants and infrastructure.  With digital twins and related capabilities, the engineering design software now has an increasingly important role throughout the entire lifecycle of plant assets.  Digital twins have an integral part in the optimal design and construction of plants.  Asset owners are now seeing the additional value that digital twins can yield beyond the project phase and into the operate and maintain portion of the asset lifecycle.

Subscription Services in the Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling

The suppliers of Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling software have for the most part converted from selling up-front perpetual licenses to subscription services with many benefits to the user.  While there was a dampening of revenue during the transition, the Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling market rapidly added new users in 2019 to achieve significant market growth. 

Market Size Forecast for Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information ModelingThe forecast has a decline for 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recovery in 2021 during which the pandemic is expected to have fully subsided.  Afterwards, the market is expected to return to high market growth globally.  The Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling report provides a detailed forecast and explanation for these dynamic economic conditions with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Engineering Design Software Market Growth Driver

The middle class continues to expand worldwide with reduced poverty.  The associated improved living standards combined with general population growth continues to drive increased demand for consumer and industrial products.  To meet this demand, increased production capacity is required with plant upgrades and new plants that drive growth in the EDS market. 

Building Information Modeling Market Growth Driver

The combination of population growth and migration from rural to suburban and urban areas puts pressure on improving existing or building new infrastructure which drives growth in the BIM market.  The pandemic may shift population growth from cities to the outlying suburban areas.  Either way, investments in infrastructure will be required.  In developed regions, many infrastructure assets need renewal, added capacity, or replacement.  The related 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 a growing economy and for improvements in the standard of living.
