Global Engineering Information Management Solutions, Forecast to 2023 Large-scale, process-driven industries, such as utilities, generate large amounts of engineering documentation that requires collaboration for project completion and archiving for regulatory compliance. The days of keeping schematics in filing cabinets and viewing them on drafting tables has given way to digitization and file sharing across employees and contractors on personal computers and mobile devices. With capital projects growing in size and complexity and an increasingly distributed workforce, the need for managing the accompanying engineering information is greater than ever. Growth in the engineering information management (EIM) market will come from companies transitioning to fully computer-aided design workflows and embracing software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions for their digital transformation while dealing with the economic fluctuations of the oil & gas industry. Despite facing economic uncertainty and other challenges, such as energy demand and price fluctuations, Hexagon, Aveva, and BlueCielo are well positioned to continue leading the EIM market, controlling just over 50% of the market between them as of 2017. Frost & Sullivan expects revenues for the EIM solutions market to increase from $322.5 million in 2016 to 627.5 million in 2023, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.0% over the forecast period.--BEGIN PROMO--

Research Scope

This study on the EIM solutions market covers the following:

  • Global market trend analyses, including market drivers and restraints
  • Detailed unit shipment forecasts for the total media streaming devices market
