The primary vendors in the global bill of materials (BOM) software market are Autodesk, Arena Solutions, Aras, Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and Siemens. This market research report also presents a detailed segmentation of the market by end-user (automotive, aerospace and defense, electrical and electronics, and others) and by geography (APAC, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Global outlook of the BOM (bill of materials) software market

Technavio’s market research analysts have predicted that the global BOM (bill of materials) software market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 8% by 2020. This market research and analysis identifies the rise in cross-plant manufacturing activities to be one of the major factors spurring the prospects for growth in this market. Most products are manufactured in different locations and then assembled separately to bring down the total cost of manufacturing. This makes it difficult for a single vendor to manufacture products with different specifications and requirements in a single location and to supply them to different locations. By ensuring efficient data communication between different units, material management software helps in resolving issues related to quality, design changes, specifications, and manufacturing, and plays a critical role in cross-plant manufacturing activities.

The emergence of IoT (internet of things) has led to the development of smart connected devices. IoT considers hardware devices, embedded software, communication services, and IT services as a single unit and creates smart communication environments such as smart homes, smart shopping, and smart transportation. IoT uses connected devices like portable navigation devices, media players, and imaging devices with cellular connections that are developed by using bill management software and cPDM (collaborative product data management) solutions to establish a connected environment between devices.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The market appears fragmented and is characterized by the presence of several small, medium-sized and large vendors. Small vendors find it difficult to approach bigger companies who normally prefer large vendors while adopting bigger PLM (product lifecycle management) solutions. The high growth potential of this market is likely to invite more vendors to the material management software market space, which will, in turn, intensify the level of vendor competition during the forecast period.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • Autodesk
  • Arena Solutions
  • Aras
  • Dassault Systèmes
  • PTC
  • Siemens PLM

The other prominent vendors in the market are IQMS, Omnify Software, Open Systems, Oracle, SAP, and Silicon Expert Technologies.

Segmentation by end-user and analysis of the BOM software market

  • Automotive industry
  • Aerospace and defense industry
  • Electrical and electronics industry

During 2015, the automotive industry segment accounted for more than 24% of the total market share and dominated the BOM software market. Factors such as the increasing number of car models and the recent rise in the number of hybrid, plug-in, and electric cars will continue to fuel the demand for BOM software from this market segment in the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the BOM software market

  • APAC
  • Europe
  • North America
  • ROW

According to this market study, North America accounted for about 38% of the total market share and dominated the BOM software market during 2015. Constantly increasing investments in R&D and the growing need for safety features in automobiles will contribute to the growth of the market in this region during the forecast period.
