Peter, in his keynote speech State of PLM: Today’s Market and Leading Trends disclosed that in the year of 2016 overall PLM market was up 5.2% to $40.7 billion. cPDm sector grew 6.4% at $14.1 billion with services grew slower than software. Tools sector grew 4.5% at $25.9 billion with AEC pulled growth rate down. Digital manufacturing sector was up 10.3% at $698 million, a higher growth than usual.

Peter also talked about some hotspots and issues of digital enterprise, digital twin, and digital transformation. He pointed out that the digital tools used to enable the product lifecycle were the beginnings of this digitalization wave. The emergence of the product innovation platform has the potential to not only enable the end-to-end digitalization required to be successful, but to thrive.

Stan in detail analyzed the performance of global PLM market in 2016 and presented the statistics from different dimensions. He pointed out that although affected by market changes global PLM market still had a decent growth. Therewere many IT trends converging that change business models affect results. Major PLM vendors were trying to differentiate and there are 95 acquisitions in 2016. Simulation and analysis sector and system engineering sector had continued growth last year.
