This industry research report identifies ANSYS, Autodesk, Dassault Systemes, Mentor Graphics, and Siemens as the key vendors in the global motion simulation market. This report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by end user (aerospace and defense, automotive, electrical and electronics, industrial machinery, and others) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global motion simulation market

Market research analysts at Technavio have predicted that the global motion simulation market will grow steadily during the predicted period and will post an impressive CAGR of about 11% by 2020. One of the major factors that will contribute to the growth of the motion simulation software market in the next four years is the increasing popularity of cloud-based motion simulation and analysis software. The limited availability of high-performance computing devices has made it difficult for engineers to operate their complex and computationally demanding simulation software. Cloud-based motion analysis software offers several advantages such as large space for data storage, flexibility, ease of access, and increased security. Moreover, cloud-based services do not require customers to pay for licensing, offers improved scalability, and also requires very less maintenance. Such benefits will induce more software vendors to partner with cloud service platform and hosting solution providers to provide efficient cloud-based motion simulation services to customers. 

Aerospace and defense companies are constantly on the lookout for new space launch systems for space exploration missions. To attain the highest quality and cost and time reduction, companies rely on product lifecycle management (PLM) software to develop efficient space launch systems. The recently launched Atlas V rocket was designed using engineering analysis and simulation software from Siemens’ PLM software business. Another major aerospace company, ATK Aerospace has adopted Siemens' PLM Software for designing, simulation, and analysis of their ATK Aerospace space launch system. Also, the estimated increase in the development of the space tourism industry will also lead to a rise in the use of motion flight simulators to develop space launch systems.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market is characterized by the presence of several large- and small-scale motion simulation software vendors. Motion simulation has become an important stage in product design and development. The exponential increase in its demand is expected to intensify vendor competition in the market in the coming years. Leading international vendors have also started focusing on increasing their product portfolio by acquiring smaller specialty software vendors and mid-size firms.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Autodesk
  • Dassault Systemes
  • Mentor Graphics
  • Siemens

The other prominent vendors in the market are Altair, Aspen Technology, CEI, COMSOL, ESI, Exa, MSC software, NEi Software, and NUMECA.

Segmentation by end user and analysis of the motion simulation market

  • Aerospace and defense
  • Automotive
  • Electrical and electronics
  • Industrial machinery

This market research and analysis estimates that the automotive segment accounted for almost 30% of the total market share and dominated this market during 2015. The automotive industry uses motion simulation software in various procedures such as combustion analysis, fuel spray analysis, and electromagnetic field analysis, and this trend will continue in the coming years as well. Additionally, the growing focus towards the development of electric vehicles and automated driving systems will also aid in the growth of the market in this industry segment.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the motion simulation market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

According to this market study, the Americas will account for about 37% of the total share of the global motion simulation market by 2020 and will dominate this market throughout the forecast period. The emergence of new technology products such as 3D printers, health and fitness devices, and smart watches will induce OEMs to adopt and implement motion simulation technologies for designing new products. Moreover, the US is continuously increasing its R&D investment in the military sector, which will contribute to the growth of the motion simulation software market in the aerospace and defense industry in this region.
