“North America to hold the largest regional market share in 2019.”

North America is the largest revenue contributor in 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 the industries, the design process contributes small fraction to 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 minimum, within the timeframe.

Some of the major players 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.
