The growing need for product innovation, productivity enhancement, as well as reduction in operational cost are the key factors driving the growth of the product lifecycle management (PLM) market. A PLM solution increases the productivity of a system substantially by providing various tools and methodologies to reduce redundancies. PLM vendors have also started offering various customized PLM solutions according to the needs of enterprises, further aiding the growth in demand. However, the PLM market faces some challenges such as low interoperability between different product versions, competitive products, data formats, and data models and databases. The global PLM market generated revenue of US$ 52.41 Bn in 2019 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period (2020-2030) to reach a market size of US$ 91.99 Bn by 2030.

The PLM considered here includes both software and service components. PLM software can be segmented into on-premise and cloud-based. Different on-premise and cloud-based PLM software types include CAD/CAM/CAE (CAx), numerical control (NC), simulation and analysis (S&A), architecture, engineering and construction (AEC), collaborative product definition management (CPDM), digital manufacturing, electronic design automation (EDA), and others. In 2019, on-premise PLM software occupied a major share of the PLM software market. This was due to the large demand for on-premise PLM solutions due to the concerns related to security and accessibility in various end-use sectors for cloud-based solutions. However, increasing security of cloud and access to increased features over cloud are driving the demand for cloud-based PLM software. Cloud-based PLM solutions are increasingly being deployed by enterprises across the globe. Cloud-based implementation models lower the cost by avoiding the need for infrastructure investments along with the increase in scalability, and accessibility to information, processes, and functions. SMEs are more likely to adopt cloud-based PLM solutions during the coming years due to its low cost.

The growth of the CAx segment is driven by the demand to lower time-to-market of products in enterprises. During the coming years, the market for both on-premise and cloud-based CAx solutions is expected to be majorly driven by the demand from SMEs as these enterprises have started investing in standalone software to have better visualization of the product as well as reduction in operational costs.

Aerospace and defense was the largest end-use segment of PLM in 2019. This segment has a significantly long product development cycle and in order to manage this, companies in this sector started adopting PLM solutions extensively. Increasing global competition, reduction in budgets related to defense and aerospace, and a rising commercial aircraft backlog would significantly drive the demand for PLM in companies in the aerospace and defense sector. Non-traditional end-use sectors such as consumer products and retail, and medical devices and pharmaceutical have also started using PLM solutions and services in order to increase their production efficiency. Thus, the growing demand from non-traditional end-use sectors is also one of the major factors that drives the growth of the PLM market globally.
