CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM strategic management consulting and research firm announces the release of the CIMdata 2017 Executive PLM Market Report.

It also includes perspectives on current trends in the PLM industry and how they may affect current suppliers and investments.

While the global economy has limped along since the slump in 2009, the PLM economy, as measured in our PLM market analysis, has continued to grow. In calendar year 2016, the PLM market grew to $40.6 billion overall, 5.0% growth in U.S. dollars over 2015. ¡°The PLM market, and most segments, saw solid growth in 2016,¡± according to Mr. Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata¡¯s Vice President of Research. ¡°Simulation and Analysis (S&A) continued its run of strong years, and digital manufacturing was up double digits because of organic growth and portfolio expansion. We expect the move toward smart, connected products to continue growth in S&A, software development tools, and electronic design automation (EDA).¡±
