Overview of the global CFD market in the automotive industry

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global CFD market in the automotive industry to grow at a CAGR of almost 10% by 2021. At present, the automotive manufacturers are undergoing high pressure to minimize the product development cycle. CFD is primarily used in the designing stage of the product development cycle, specifically in the simulation and optimization processes. The designing stage is crucial in the product development lifecycle as it reduces the time and cost of production of automotive products and components. Such advanced characteristics have promptly increased the dependence of several industries on the software to reduce product development cycle time. The effective use of PLM software such as CAD, CFD, and CAM helps minimize product recalls by refining the product design, which will subsequently increase the application of CFD software in the automotive industry.

The automotive industry is witnessing the growing shift towards the adoption of electric vehicles. Several vehicle manufacturers are increasing their investments in the research activities to manufacture fuel-efficient vehicles. They are complying with the set standards and are focusing towards manufacturing cost-effective vehicles. Companies such as General Motors and Ford have increased the

Overview of the global output management software market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global output management software market to grow at a CAGR of close to 3% between 2017 and 2021. The growing requirement to minimize the operational costs in IT departments is a major driving force in the growth of the output management software market. The output management software aids in enhancing the flexibility of the IT department and helping the team to take timely decisions. The IT department can implement decisions speedily, which results in reduced costs and better end-user efficiency. The output management software also makes it convenient to extend the network of the printer with the expansion of the workplaces. The software eliminates the need for additional printing devices and offers services such as pull printing, mobile printing, and auditing functions. It also helps to manage printers from one central location and helps to dispense printing options in the system landscape.

One of the latest trends in the output management software market is the outsourcing of services to the Asian countries. Companies are opting to outsource their output management activities, including the printing process and document management, to Asia. This helps them to focus more on their, such as R&D and product development, rather than spending time and resource on print-related activities. A significant part of outsourcing occurs in operational print activities, such as printing of materials that include memos, brochures, stationary, and manuals. With several printing activities being outsourced, companies can achieve faster time to market, which is the major advantage of outsourcing.

Overview of the global digital manufacturing (DM) market in the electrical and electronics industry

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global digital manufacturing (DM) market in the electrical and electronics industry to grow at a CAGR of around 7% during the forecast period. In the electrical and electronics industry, DM is primarily used during the manufacturing planning, simulation, quality check, and NC programming. The adoption of DM in the electrical and electronics sector helps to smoothen the flow of product and plant information during change processes without losing consistency in product designing. It helps in viewing machining and tooling information and 3D information of the product at the same time. Moreover, the simulation properties in DM assists in the validation of robotics and automation programs and accelerates the factory manufacturing process. With the growing requirement for improved traceability in the manufacturing activities, the DM market will witness massive growth in the coming years.

One of the major trends in the DM market is the growing focus on mobile applications such as manufacturing 360 and Tecnomatix 360. PLM manufacturers, such as PTC, have applications such as Windchill mobile; however, they do not have DM-specific applications like Siemens. These types of applications augment the mobility and ease of use of DM software across diverse locations. It is anticipated that most of the major players in the PLM industry will offer DM-specific mobile applications during the forecast period.

Overview of the global child care management software market

Market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global child care management software market will grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 10% by 2021. This market research analysis identifies the increasing demand for the optimization of child care center processes as one of the primary growth factors for the daycare management software market. Child care management software helps child care professionals in various processes such as admissions and scheduling, billing and payments, reporting, which results in achieving improved productivity and organizational processes. Additionally, the software can also manage information including immunization tracking, activity planning, valuation analysis, overheads, and inventory management and generates reports on the administrative performance of the child care center that can be used for process improvement plans. This will help child care centers reduce costs and improve their overall productivity and efficiency, inducing more centers to adopt day care software to improve the growth of their child care center.

One of the major trends that will gain traction in this child care software market is the emergence of child care video streaming. The adoption of child care video streaming will enable parents view their child’s activities at any time, compelling child care professionals to provide the best care. This will induce parents prefer daycare centers that provide such facilities, consequently driving more daycare centers to deploy this technology.

Outlook of the global mass transit security market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global mass transit security market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 9% by 2021. One of the major drivers responsible for this growth is the increasing need for public safety. A constant rise in the crime rate and an ever-increasing number of criminal attacks has raised awareness of security among local and federal governments. For instance, in August 2015, a heavily armed man attacked commuters on a train in France. Such terror attacks are increasing worldwide, and corrective methods are being taken especially in mass transit locations such as bus stops, railway stations, airports, and marine ports. Since catastrophic attacks can lead to irreparable losses, transit security systems are helpful in monitoring and scanning people and their luggage. Also law enforcement agents are expected to take precautionary measures to avoid such incidences.

The rising number of terrorist attacks has led to an increase in the demand for chip-embedded passports, also known as e-passports. With the rising number of cross-border travelers, the need for a better passport authentication method has become a priority for authorities across the globe. E-passports are embedded with smart chips that generate a unique code for the identification of the user. These codes are difficult to decode or forge, making e-passports more reliable than traditional paper booklets. The adoption of e-passports is rapidly increasing in European countries such as Finland, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Poland, Greece, and Macedonia.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The mass transit security systems market is highly fragmented due to the presence of many small and large vendors. As the market is gaining traction and is expected to grow over the forecast period, many new players are entering the market. To
