Outlook of the global computer-aided design (CAD) market in the electrical and electronics industry
According to Technavio’s market research analyst, the global computer-aided design (CAD) market for the electrical and electronics market will experience moderate growth and post a CAGR of over 8% by 2020. The growing demand for CAD from the semiconductor industry is a key factor responsible for the strong growth of this market during the forecast period. The semiconductor industry is one of the major contributors to the overall revenue of the CAD market. Factors such as the continuous decrease in the size of semiconductors and an increased scale of integration have compelled semiconductor manufacturing companies to use the available CAD technologies. Since these technologies help decrease the complexity and difficulties involved in the design of semiconductor chips, its demand among the end-users will increase substantially over the next few years.
The recent shift from the perpetual license model to the subscription model is a key trend that is also envisaged to aid in this market’s growth over the forecast period. It has been estimated that by the end of 2016, the global CAD market in the electrical and electronics industry will phase out the perpetual CAD licenses and shift toward periodic CAD subscription or licenses. The high ROI on subscription will encourage CAD vendors to reduce the sale of perpetual CAD licenses gradually. Another major reason for this shift is the benefits of the subscription model over the perpetual license model. The subscription model is simple and provides a better user experience for the customers.

Overview of the global GIS market in the transportation industry
Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global GIS market in the transportation industry to grow at a CAGR of around 12% between 2016 and 2020. The ability of GIS systems to gather, organize, display, and analyze information has made it a necessary tool for the transportation industry. The primary use of GIS in the transportation industry is for traffic management through real-time traffic data based on location and in the construction of new road networks based on traffic requirements. It is aided by techniques such as transport telematics and intelligent transportation systems for solving traffic issues. GIS helps traffic monitoring agencies to map factors like width and structure of the road and ongoing construction works and subsequently manage the traffic. With the growing need for road and rail construction in the transportation sector, the market for GIS will witness massive growth during the forecast period.
Vendors in the GIS market are offering customized GIS applications as per the industry requirements. They are also developing application-specific GIS solutions, which are in high demand among retailers as they are more cost-effective than the general purpose GIS solutions. For instance, TransCAD, a GIS software developed by Caliper Corporation, is designed to manage, analyze, and display displaying transportation data. The software also integrates GIS with transportation modeling to form a single platform. Also, many vendors are offering 3D GIS software in the market to improve the operational
Overview of the mass notification systems (MNS) market
Extensive carried out by the analysts at Technavio has shown that the global mass notification systems market will witness staggering growth and will post an impressive CAGR of more than 15% during the forecast period. With the majority of organizations increasingly focusing on business continuity strategies, the market for mass notification systems is anticipated to have a positive outlook in the coming years. A fire or natural disasters like tornados or earthquakes can cause serious damage to organizations, apartments, and offices resulting in a prolonged power outage, and in worst scenarios a complete shutdown of an organization. With the help of a mass notification system, employees and organizations can be informed about these calamities via text, messages, voice message, or e-mails. As the primary objective of a business continuity strategy is to minimize financial losses, there will be an augmented adoption of MNS in the coming years.
In terms of geographical regions, North America accounted for the majority of market shares and will continue to lead the market over the coming years. The growth of this market in North America is attributed to the growing demand for message prioritization and fast delivery in emergency situations. The US is the largest market for MNS in North America due to the presence of a large number of vendors. Moreover, the growing need for public safety and increasing awareness about emergency communication solutions will lead to an augmented demand for MNS systems in the US.
