PLANO, Texas, July 3, 2013 - Siemens has again been recognized as the leading PLM software provider in China by CIMdata Inc., a leading independent global PLM management consulting and research firm. The firm placed Siemens PLM Software at the top of their list based on 2012 overall revenue, including total revenue, channel revenue and service revenue. Siemens was also named the market leader in two key PLM sub-segments, multi-discipline 3D computer-aided design (3D CAD) and digital manufacturing, for the third straight year, and they earned the leading PLM software provider position for China’s automotive and industrial equipment sectors for the second year in a row.
In its 2013 China PLM Market Report, CIMdata reports on the significant growth of China’s PLM market. According to CIMdata President, Peter Bilello, “In 2012, the mainstream PLM market in China grew 16.9 percent, and is forecasted to grow about 16 percent in 2013.”
The same report indicates that the automotive and industrial equipment markets, along with aerospace and defense (A&D), are three of the fastest growing markets in China. “Automotive was the largest market sector for PLM in China and demand is still high for creative designs and innovative new energy vehicles in the automotive sector,” said Bilello.
According to CIMdata‘s research, Siemens PLM Software continues to lead the Chinese market in the digital manufacturing and multi-discipline CAD segments. Siemens PLM Software addresses these two markets respectively with its Tecnomatix® portfolio, the world’s leading digital manufacturing solution, and its NX™ software, the leading integrated solution for computer-aided design, manufacturing and engineering (CAD/CAM/CAE).
“China is an increasingly competitive market and to again be named a leader in several segments and sectors tells us that we are focused on the right things for our customers,” said Leo Liang, Managing Director of Greater China, Siemens PLM Software. “This ranking is important for our company because it demonstrates the strength of our HD-PLM vision and our long-term commitment of helping our customers to make smarter decisions and build better products.”
