The Global Product Lifecycle Management Market Has Promising Growth Prospects

ARC’s recently released research on Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) finds that healthy growth is expected across multiple geographies and industries as innovative technologies, complex product needs, and digital transformation challenges are being solved by enhanced PLM solutions. Product lifecycle management serves as the backbone of manufacturing companies’ success by providing a comprehensive framework for managing the entire lifecycle of their products. Many PLM suppliers now facilitate seamless collaboration and integration across departments, from initial product design and development to manufacturing, distribution, and even post-sales support and service. North America and Europe are the largest markets. Companies from these regions tend to be leaders in industry, have a high consumer demand and a mature market model. India and China are growing as countries and look to manufacture in-house and satisfy large populations. Growth in the Middle East is coming from mega infrastructure projects.

"Despite the global challenges and economic uncertainties, companies are deploying product lifecycle management solutions to increase their operational resilience, agility, and efficiencies. Today’s solutions from PLM vendors are becoming the backbone for successful business transformation because they provide the digital foundation and enterprise product record for a product throughout its lifecycle," according to Marianne D'Aquila, Director of Research and key author of ARC's Product Lifecycle Management Market Research.
