Outlook of the global CAD market in the apparel industry

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global CAD market in the apparel industry to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. PLM software solutions, including CAD, provide virtual product designing and analysis capability. The ability of these solutions to maximize the economic benefits from the end user’s perspective will result in the strong growth of this market. The augmented need to reduce product development time is another major driver for the CAD market in the apparel industry.

The apparel industry requires high levels of customization, and this high demand for apparel customization has fueled the demand for CAD solutions across the industry. Initially, companies relied on mass production, which lead to cost reduction. This trend has changed with time and is being replaced by the mass customization concept, which is slowly traction among the companies. The capability of the CAD software to determine the cost of materials during the design stage will result in its increased adoption during the forecast period.
