The PLM market grew to $60.6 billion overall in 2021 (11.9% growth over 2020). The Americas region was 38.1% of the global PLM market in 2021 and is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 10.3% to $37.6 billion in 2026. EMEA (33.3% of the global market) and AP (28.6%) will have CAGRs of 9.6% and 10.4%, respectively. EMEA will grow to nearly $32 billion, and AP will reach $28.4 billion in 2026.

“The global PLM market grew in 2021, above our forecasts,” states Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata Vice President and research lead. “The COVID-19 pandemic impacted the whole world, including the PLM market. Both 2020 and 2021 saw the market return with strong growth. The leading PLM solution providers continue consolidating 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. An increased emphasis on the digital thread will also spur investment in both software and services to help bring together many disparate data sources to support products through their lifecycles.”
