​Product Lifecycle Management Solution Providers Seek to Expand into New Industries

The product lifecycle management (PLM) market experienced moderate growth overall in 2016.   Some leading PLM suppliers experienced double-digit decline in revenue due to changes to licensing models.  PLM suppliers saw continued growth in traditional discrete industries like automotive and aerospace & defense, as well as in non-traditional PLM markets like life sciences, energy, power, and process; architecture, engineering, and construction; and shipbuilding.

According to this report, the market will experience average growth over the five-year forecast period.  Growth will vary across global regions, with APAC projected to maintain strong growth, followed by North America and EMEA.  

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) Market TrendsPLM business and deployment models are undergoing changes due to the cloud-based PLM solutions offered by most leading suppliers.  “PLM in the cloud” offers small-to-medium-sized PLM users more options to tailor solutions to their specific business and engineering requirements.  The rapidly growing need for product development based on systems engineering, emergence of mechatronics and product complexity, continued growth of manufacturing in emerging economies, and expanding adoption of a more holistic end-to-end PLM solution set will all contribute to the growth in the worldwide PLM market.

Product Lifecycle Management Strategic Issues

One trend that will impact multiple industries involves developing and manufacturing the next generation of smart, IoT-connected products.  While manufacturers across all industrial sectors are ramping up to meet demand for this growing smart product market, they face major challenges in developing and manufacturing new and significantly more complex products.
