Factory Simulation Software Revenue will Reach $4.1B

Simulation software applications have more upside growth potential across the globe. Industrial companies have already applied the software for use cases to build manufacturing systems, deploy new production lines, and evolve factory planning methodologies.

While no single manufacturing technology drives this transformation movement, simulation software now holds the potential to act as a significant catalyst for a new Industry 4.0 platforms.

Simulation Software Market Development

If simulation software can accurately predict the effects of other technologies on the core goals of manufacturers -- i.e. more production, more uptime, improved time to market, improved quality, fewer delays, more efficiencies, greater utilization of assets, all at lower costs -- then companies will deploy more technologies at scale with greater confidence.

The market for factory simulation software products will grow at a compound annual growth rate of 11 percent to reach $4.1 billion for over 172,000 users in 2030, according to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research.

Vendor revenue includes software that uses computer modeling to analyze how production might work in any given factory or situation, and implement virtual commissioning to test proposed changes and upgrades before they're put into effect.

"Today, many manufacturing enterprises have started to use simulation software, but most have not yet realized the added benefits of using simulation software as part of a larger smart manufacturing platform or to virtually test other new technologies," said Nick Finill, principal analyst at ABI Research.

Cloud-based platforms can help to provide a similar user interface for simulations from the different points of view of process engineers, operations support managers, plant engineers, and control engineers.

Companies can assign user roles so that engineers only see and modify the details and information that they need for their job or level of expertise, and engineers in different locations can work on different parts of the same model.

The new research uncovered that this customization process increases manufacturing data security, speeds up the simulation process, and makes the product easier to use.

Outlook for Automotive Simulation Apps Growth

According to the ABI assessment, the automotive industry represents the largest opportunity globally, with $1.8 billion in factory simulation software revenues forecasted for 2030.

"Automotive manufacturing leads the way for many transformative technologies and therefore has a higher demand to simulate those technologies. It also has an edge on most industries in sheer size and organizational transformation, with more holistic solution deployments due to cross-functional technology transformation teams," concludes Finill.

Big Data Analytics Market Development "As executives seek solutions to enable better, faster decisions, we're seeing relatively healthy BDA spending across all industries. Leveraging data for insights into everything from internal business operations to the customer journey is top of mind and of strategic importance," said Jessica Goepfert, vice

Why Cloud Fuels Net-New Digital Business Growth

CEOs and Line of Business (LoB) leaders seek the fastest path to meaningful digital transformation advancement. Meanwhile, investment trends in cloud computing infrastructure continue to expand the capabilities, accelerating growth across all segments within the public cloud services market. According to the latest worldwide market study by Gartner, the four key trends are cloud ubiquity, regional cloud ecosystems, sustainability or carbon-intelligent cloud, and automated programmable cloud infrastructure. "The economic, organizational and societal impact of the pandemic will continue to serve as a catalyst for digital innovation and adoption of cloud services," said Henrique Cecci, senior research director at Gartner . "This is especially true for use cases such as collaboration, remote work, and new digital services to support a hybrid workforce."

Software-Defined Infrastructure: The Platform of Choice

As more organizations adapt to a hybrid working model for their distributed workforce, enterprise CIOs and CTOs are tasked with delivering new productivity-enabling applications, while also seeking ways to effectively reduce IT cost, complexity, and risk. Traditional IT hardware infrastructure is evolving to more software-based solutions. The worldwide software-defined infrastructure (SDI) combined software market reached $12.17 billion during 2020 -- that's an increase of 5 percent over 2019, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC). The market grew faster than other core IT technologies. The three technology pillars within the SDI market are: software-defined compute (53 percent of market value), software-defined storage controller (36 percent), and software-defined networking (11 percent). "Software-defined infrastructure solutions have long been popular for companies looking to eliminate cost, complexity, and risk within their data cente
