The global computer-aided engineering market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Computer-aided engineering (CAE) refers to the process of developing and simulating the performance of a product using software and virtual tools. It enables the developer to improve the product design and performance while resolving various engineering problems. CAE involves the replication of a product’s physical properties and performing thermal and finite element analysis, and multiple optimizations. It also supports faster product development by eliminating the need for building physical prototypes in early developmental stages. Owing to these benefits, CAE finds extensive applicability across the automotive, aerospace, plant engineering, electronics, energy and healthcare industries.
The growing integration of computer-aided drafting (CAD) with CAE, along with the increasing cloud deployment of software, represent as the key factors driving the growth of the market. The CAD technology aids in the timely calculation of stress distribution and deformations in a product without influencing the modeling process. Furthermore, user-friendly technological advancements in the CAE software have enabled developers and designers to upload their analysis on the cloud platform, which offers increased mobility and significant cost reductions. The rapid growth of the smart and wearable device industry, along with the increasing penetration rate of internet services, is also creating a positive outlook for the market. The increasing usage of smartphones, tablets and smartwatches is further favoring the widespread acceptance of CAE for medicinal, fitness, transportation, education and entertainment purposes. Moreover, advancements in the automotive sector, including the advent of driverless and semi-autonomous cars, which use the technology for collision avoidance, parking assistance systems and interactive infotainment systems, are projected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global computer-aided engineering market to grow at a CAGR of 10% during 2021-2026.
