The global Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Software Market was valued at USD 10.8 billion in 2023 and is predicted to reach USD 16.6 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period. The factor responsible for the growth of CAD software across the globe is the more usage of CAD software in the automotive and manufacturing industries.
Insight by Technology
Based on technology, The Global CAD Software Market is divided into two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) CAD software. 3D CAD contributed larger revenue to the global CAD software market than 2D CAD in recent times and is also expected to be the leading technology throughout the forecast period. An increase in demand for drawing efficiency and accuracy along with increasing penetration of 3D across various application areas are the major factors driving the growth of the global 3D CAD software market. Engineering 3D modelling improves data management by allowing user to organise and manage design assets and papers. It allows user to standardize detailing & drafting techniques, improving output speed & accuracy and automating workflow.
Insight by Model
The Global CAD Software Market is categorized into solid, surface, and wire-frame models based on model type. Solid model contributed the largest revenue to the global CAD market. It is also expected to register the highest growth during the forecast period due to its focus on precise designing and professional product prototyping.
Insight by Deployment
The Global CAD Software Market is Bifurcated into on-premises and cloud. The increasing demand for more flexible CAD solutions and growing implementation of cloud technology in different industries are the major growth feature of the market. The cloud deployment mode is a popular choice of businesses and individuals because it provides users with access to CAD tools and resources from anywhere only with an internet connection.
Insight by Level
The Global CAD Software Market is classified into beginner, intermediate and professional on the basis of level. Intermediate level held the largest market share in this market. The presence of intermediate level designers is high globally which plays an important role for the growth of this market. Due to budget constraints designers requires software that’s cost less but offers more productivity while handling the small sized and mid-sized projects.
Insight by Application
Automotive application has been contributing the largest revenue in the global CAD software market. Complexity is rising everywhere, putting tremendous pressure on engineering organizations to become more effective, and faster with respect to product design. As automakers across the globe are pinning their hopes on the rising demand of advanced, safe and reliable products, they are bound to introduce new variants and designs with the latest design software. CAD enables automakers to easily change and refine a design with high precision, covering all the features and dimensions of a particular product. The demand for advanced CAD software is also gaining high prominence in other application areas such as industrial machinery, aerospace, defense, and healthcare.

The demand for quality automotive products has increased in recent years. Users are significantly focusing on quality products over brand value. This has resulted in a major recall of products by many manufacturers in the market. With millions of connected cars expected to be on the road in the coming years, designers are considering advanced solutions and tools provided by CAD software to align the design and development of products with error-free manufacturing. CAD plays a major role in ensuring the utmost quality and precision while helping in manufacturing each part in the automotive industry.
Overall, the CAD software market is expected to continue expanding as industries increasingly rely on digital design tools for improved productivity, reduced time to market, and enhanced product quality. The market is likely to witness further advancements in technologies like artificial intelligence, automation, and generative design, which will shape the future of CAD software.
The high price of advanced CAD software is also a major factor negatively impacting the growth of the CAD software market. Due to high implementation and maintenance costs, advanced CAD software is not preferred by small-scale industries and designers. Apart from this, advanced CAD software requires highly configurable workstations to run effectively, thus, increasing the overall IT budget of the users.
Geographically, North America is the largest revenue contributor to the CAD software market. The rising usage of CAD in aerospace and automotive industries for prototyping products prior to production is fueling its demand. In both industries, the design process contributes a small fraction of the total production cost. However, sometimes designing time varies and can make up to 40% of the overall project cost. In this context, CAD plays a significant role to bring down this cost to a minimum, within the timeframe.
Asia-Pacific is projected to register the highest growth rate during the study timeframe, owing to the surge in the adoption of CAD software in the healthcare industry to provide better health treatment to people. In addition, the usage of CAD in the healthcare industry enables medical practitioners to design devices that make a disabled person independent from the need of healthcare workers. Also, CAD is getting widely implemented for aiding breast tissue reconstruction in cancer patients, which is augmenting the market growth.
Key players operating in the global CAD software market include Dassault Systèmes SE, Autodesk Inc., Bentley Systems Inc., PTC Inc., Trimble Inc., Gstarsoft Co. Ltd., Hexagon AB, AVEVA Group plc., 3D Systems Corporation, CNC Software Inc., IronCAD LLC, AO Nanosoft, and SolidCAM GmbH.
