This market study recognizes vendors such as Siemens, Dassault Systèmes, PTC, and SAP as the leading players in the global cPDM market. This report presents market segmentations based on end-user (electrical and electronics, industrial machinery, automotive, aerospace and defense industry, and others) and geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Outlook of the collaborative product definition management (cPDM) market

The market research analysts at Technavio predict that the global collaborative product definition management (cPDM) market will grow steadily and post a CAGR of around 10% by 2020. The increase in demand for product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions used for communication, coordination, and collaboration with different business units will be one of the significant factors contributing to the growth of the market. Product outlining will be an important component of the overall manufacturing process and solutions such as cPDM as they enable effective collaboration among various departments that plan, design, manufacture, and support a product throughout its lifecycle. Additionally, it also ensures the availability of updated product information to all units. Also, collaboration techniques conferred by PLM solutions will add to the ease of designing a product, help manage material costs, lower inventory costs, and boost product quality.

A recent trend observed in the global cPDM market is the capability of cPDM to support CAD Files. Several cPDM vendors have incorporated the ability to support different types of CAD files, such as .dwg, .dft, .3dxml, .psm, and database files, which will enable the effective integration of various design records into signal product structures. Furthermore, this ability will aid in the integration of two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) documents for visualization of the product assembly, which will further help in the evolution of the market space.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

In this market, there appears to be intense competition among the existing vendors and new entrants. The sellers will opt for mergers and acquisitions, distribute resources to market products that are distinct, clear, and unique value proposition, and in technological innovations.
