Renewable energy

TechNavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Computer-aided Manufacturing Market: Dassault Systemes S.A., Siemens PLM Software Inc., Delcam, and PTC.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Enterprise Computing team said: ”CAM solutions have many more applications other than those in the Engineering industry. CAM solutions are also being used by industries such as Woodworking, Jewelry, and Healthcare. The application of CAM in the Woodworking industry is to develop furniture and complex wood-related artwork with precision. The Jewelry industry has started adopting CAM solutions to develop complex designer jewelry with ease and flexibility. With the increase in globalization, there is an increase in competition among CAM solution vendors to attain as much market share as they can. This has driven several vendors to develop application-specific CAM solutions. Thus, vendors are developing solutions specific to applications such as footwear design, ceramic manufacture, for plastics and tires, and in dental applications.”
According to the report, the increase in globalization has resulted in intense competition in many industries to develop precision-machined products. Part accuracy is one of the key focus areas of the product development lifecycle. Given this scenario, CAM software solutions are widely adopted for enhanced part production visualization. CAM solutions generate accurate and consistent cutting tool paths for state-of-the-art manufacturability. Thus, CAM software solutions allow organizations to develop better quality products with optimal accuracy, thereby increasing their competitiveness in the international markets.
Further, the report states that the rapid technological advancements have resulted in the availability of a number of open-source and pirated CAM solutions, which have begun to compete with commercial and licensed CAM solutions. These open-source and pirated software products can be downloaded and run on all platforms.Thus, the increasing availability of open-source and pirated CAM software solutions will pose a threat to commercial CAM solution vendors during the forecast period.
The report also includes a discussion of the other vendors operating in this market. The other vendors in the market are Planit, Tebis, Cimatron , OPEN MIND , Missler Software , and CNC Software, DP Technology Corp., Graphic Products Inc., Sescoi Inc., C and G Systems Corp., and Makino Milling Machine Co. Ltd.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors. For further information on this report, please visit
