2021 Geo F1Geographic Distribution of PLM Revenues—History and Forecast


The PLM market grew to nearly $53.5 billion in 2020 (3.8% growth over 2019). For 2020, EMEA had 33% of the PLM market, with the Americas at 38.2%, and Asia-Pacific with 28.8%. The Americas region is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.4% to reach nearly $30.7 billion in 2025. EMEA and AP will have CAGRs of 8.2% and 8.9%, respectively. EMEA will grow to $26.1 billion, and AP will reach nearly $23.6 billion in 2025.

“The global PLM market grew in 2020, above our forecasts,” states Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata Vice President and research lead. “The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the whole world, including the PLM market. Software and services providers and their customers struggled in the first half of 2020, but all seemed to regain their footing in the second half. The leading PLM solution providers continue to consolidate their portfolios after years of acquisitions. Industrial companies use PLM to enable highly collaborative, distributed, flexible design and manufacturing environments to help better manage the entire product or plant lifecycle. PLM-enabling solutions helped many companies address COVID-19 dictated requirements in these unprecedented times. Another big driver of PLM growth is the push toward digital transformation and Industry 4.0, which must be powered by strong PLM strategies and enabling solutions in manufacturing companies. These trends grew even stronger during the pandemic.”
