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

Publish Date

The Engineering Design Tools for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling market research study delivers current market analysis plus a five year market and technology forecast. The study is available in multiple editions including worldwide and all regions.

Engineering Design Tools Help Companies Control Project Costs

There is a concerted effort by the industries involved in CAPEX projects to focus on efficiency, cost containment, and collaborative information access across the design/build/operate/maintain lifecycle. Many of the suppliers covered in this market study are offering solutions that address these issues.  Beyond the project phase and into the OPEX domain of the design/build/operate/maintain lifecycle, asset owners are now seeing the additional value that design tools can yield.

For the Infrastructure/Building Information Modeling (BIM) portion of the design tools market, the current level of market activity is a result of the ongoing demand for the creation of infrastructure in the developing regions of the world, as well as the need to update and improve existing infrastructure of industrialized countries. 

Emerging technologies are having a considerable impact on both plant design and infrastructure.  Technologies like virtual reality systems capture the physical world and create 3D models using advanced photometry, laser scanning point cloud, and photon LIDAR systems. This is basically the fusion of perception and reality to augment perception with digital reality.  Advanced geospatial technology allows users to accurately map any part of the physical landscape on a global basis.  Building new generations of smart cities will depend heavily on these technologies.

Engineering Design Tools Strategic Issues

Engineering Design Tools Market ForecastThe plant and infrastructure domains have different market dynamics.  Users need to know the capabilities and strategies of suppliers for their particular market.  Additionally, both EPCs and owner-operators need to be aware of the market and relevant technologies. This study answers key questions, such as: 

  • How can suppliers increase their value proposition?
  • Where are the best opportunities for growth?
  • What are the key drivers for market growth and constraints?
  • What new trends and technologies are driving engineering design tool solutions and market growth?
