In 2017 the growth rate of the Chinese Mainstream PLM market is forecasted to be 12.8%.¡± Chinese industries that are heavily investing in PLM include aerospace, automotive, high-tech electronics, and mechanical machinery. The following chart illustrates the growth and size of the China PLM market for the past 2 years and projects growth through 2021.

Global PLM solution providers continue to invest in China and are expanding their partner networks and growing their customer bases. The leading international PLM solution providers including Dassault Syst¨¨mes, PTC, and Siemens PLM Software are all showing continued growth in China, but local firms are growing as well. ¡°Local Chinese solution providers are starting to gain real market share,¡± stated Peter Bilello, CIMdata¡¯s President. ¡°We had strong attendance at our sixth annual China PLM Market & Industry Forum. Chinese companies see the need to develop smart, connected products and are very interested in systems engineering. These Chinese competitors are closer to their local market and are expanding their offerings into new segments, a good sign for the vitality of the Chinese PLM market,¡± he added. ¡°We are also getting traction with our global PLM Certificate classes in China, delivered by our local partners. This shows that industrial companies are seeing the value to be gained by adopting PLM strategies and enabling technologies.¡±
