Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) Software Market: Dynamics

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) Software Market: Key Drivers.

  • Growing need for development of infrastructure and housing is likely to boost the growth of the global construction industry, leading to huge demand for AEC software from designers and construction planners to manage building projects more efficiently. Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) implements a 3D model-based approach for construction projects that have been gaining traction across the world.
  • Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) software can adopt design aids and intelligent plugins to complete tiresome tasks (e.g.: plumbing design and HVAC). AEC software is used in projects of complexity (such as airports), that ensures accuracy throughout the whole project.
  • Architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) software provides benefits such as visualization, synchronization, collaboration of construction and design planning, and cost reduction.
  • However, high capital investment for AEC software is expected to hamper the market during the forecast period.
