PLANO, Texas, April 7, 2009 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, today announced that in the recently released market analysis, leading PLM industry consulting and research firm CIMdata, Inc. recognized Siemens PLM Software as a PLM leader and as the vendor with the top market presence in the collaborative Product Definition management (cPDm) and Digital Manufacturing market segment, which, according to CIMdata, are important sub-segments within the PLM industry.
This in-depth data and analysis of the PLM market was released in March 2009 and builds on information presented by CIMdata in their 2008 PLM Market Analysis Report released last year. Based on market estimates, the CIMdata analysis ranked Siemens PLM Software number one in terms of market presence for both cPDm and Digital Manufacturing among the PLM Mindshare Leaders in 2008. The market presence achievement also signals the health and growth of the Siemens PLM Software Partner Program. 2008 was also the fourth year in a row they have been the cPDm market presence leaders.
“With its Teamcenter® and Tecnomatix® software solutions, Siemens PLM Software continues to be the market presence revenue leader in these important segments,” said Ed Miller, president of CIMdata. “Siemens PLM Software’s Teamcenter solution remains the cornerstone of their PLM and cPDm strength and their Tecnomatix solution is continuing to demonstrate solid growth as manufacturers use this solution to find efficiencies on the shop floor, helping them save time and money.”
According to CIMdata, cPDm is forecast to continue being the fastest-growing segment of the PLM market with an 8.6 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to exceed $12 billion in 2013 – leading both the Tools and Digital Manufacturing segments in growth. CIMdata estimates that the Comprehensive PLM market as a whole will grow at a CAGR of 6.3 percent to approximately $35 billion by 2013.
“For the seventh year in a row, our cPDm presence far outpaced that of the nearest PLM vendor,” said Dave Shirk, executive vice president, Global Marketing, Siemens PLM Software. “Our Teamcenter launch later this year will only add to the excitement around our cPDm innovation. Our partners’ success is an indicator of the success of our open business strategy and ability to form strategic, beneficial partnerships with multiple major systems integrators and software vendors.
“Our industry-leading Tecnomatix software continues to provide the flexibility and productivity our customers need in order to compete and has proven to be a very strong segment in the PLM market overall. We remain committed to helping our customers ‘build the product right’ in order to win in today’s environment.”
