Engineering Design Software & Building Information Modeling Markets Continue Strong Growth

ARC’s new research on the Engineering Design Software and Building Information Modeling (EDS/BIM) market includes engineering design, analysis, and project management software and associated services used for the design and construction of physical plants and infrastructure. The EDS portion of the report includes power, process, and marine industries. The BIM market includes infrastructure. The market continued its strong growth in 2022 and is expected to continue to experience high market growth globally. Most of the suppliers of EDS/BIM software have converted from selling upfront perpetual licenses to subscription services. Subscription services have many benefits to the user, including converting CapEx to OpEx, nearly eliminating dependencies on IT support, no more upgrades, and reducing the first-year acquisition cost (including the servers) by about 60 percent.

"The benefits of SaaS, including reduced first year acquisition costs, have dramatically expanded the number of seats for EDS/BIM software suppliers. Continued urbanization and the adoption of smart city technologies are both driving growth in the EDS/BIM software market. In parallel to urbanization, the infrastructure’s attributes are changing to accommodate smart cities, which are designed using EDS/BIM software," according to Ralph Rio, Vice President of Enterprise Software and key author of ARC's Engineering Design Software for Plants, Infrastructure, and Building Information Modeling Market Research.
