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.

Dr. Huang disclosed digits in China. He said that Chinese mainstream PLM market in 2016 had a double-digit growth at 11.2%. Overall Chinese PLM market grew 12.1% to $1,787 million. Chinese market share grew from 4.12% in 2015 to 4.4% in 2016. In terms of segments, all sectors continued to grow last year. 3D-CAD grows smoothly. Simulation and analysis grew faster than overall tools. Digital manufacturing, NC, and CAPP grew very quickly because of strong demand. 2D-CAD sector had tiny growth last year.
