Market Segmentation

Global Simulation Software Market by End User

The design engineer category held the major share in the global simulation software market in 2020. Design engineers are responsible for defining the product to meet target requirements, including performance and cost of products. They use simulation software design-to-cost/design-for-manufacturing (DTC/DFM) insights to achieve target product cost and ease of manufacture. High usage of these software in designing products is a major factor resulting in the domination of this category in the market.

Global Simulation Software Market by Organization Size

A large organization with revenue in the range of $1-$5 billion is the dominant category in the market. A large number of companies in this category, coupled with high research and development (R&D) investment and high information technology (IT) budget, is the major factor driving the growth of this category. However, micro and very small companies are expected to be the fastest-growing category during the forecast period, growing at a CAGR of 17.1% and 16.5%, respectively.

Global Simulation Software Market by Industry Vertical

Industrial equipment is the most dominant vertical for the adoption of simulation software, holding a 35.4% share in 2020. Many companies in the industrial equipment sector, high cost of goods sold (COGS), high IT budget, and high expenses in R&D activities are the major factors for the domination of this category in the market.

Global Simulation Software Market by Deployment

On-premise deployment of simulation software is the most dominant vertical for the adoption of simulation software, holding a 35.4% share in 2020. However, several large enterprises have moved or shown intent to move toward a cloud-based infrastructure that involves supply chain collaboration.

The current situation represents the accessibility of software being limited to senior designations and not to every employee that works in a relevant department. The ease and low cost of such a system is the major reason for the growth of this category in the market.

Global Simulation Software Market by Component

Simulation software is an important component of a computer-aided design (CAD) process. It helps product designers to optimize, evaluate, and compare product designs and prototypes by modeling events in a real-world simulated environment. This software creates a model governed by mathematical data and equations and place it in a pre-defined system.

The original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and vendors integrate simulation software with digital additive manufacturing and networking, digital twin, and communication, boosting their demand.

Global Simulation Software Market by Region

North America is the largest market of simulation software globally. A large number of companies in manufacturing and industrial sector coupled with high R&D budget, high adoption of technologies in design and development of products, significant government investment in public sectors, increasing adoption of simulation in healthcare and pharmaceutical industry is the major factor for the growth of simulation software in the region.

The U.S. is the largest market in the region, holding a significant revenue contribution in 2020. Government regulations, technological advancements, extensive investments for dedicated R&D facilities, and the presence of major companies are some of the major drivers propelling the growth of the market in the region.
