2010 CAM Software Market Leaders Named by CIMdata

CIMdata announces 2010 CAM software market leaders in new NC Market Analysis report.

Ann Arbor, MI, August 05, 2011 --( CIMdata, Inc., the leading global PLM consulting and research firm announces the worldwide CAM software market leaders for 2010 in the initial release of Version 20 of the NC Market Analysis Report.

For 2010, Dassault Systèmes was the market leader on the basis of both direct supplier revenues and end-user payments for CAM software and services, and Planit Holdings was the leader in terms of industrial seats shipped. Planit Holdings was also the leader on the basis of industrial seats installed. Siemens PLM Software’s NX was the leader in industrial seats shipped by brand and CNC Software’s Mastercam was the leader in both industrial and educational seats installed by brand name. C&G Systems Inc. was named as the most rapidly-growing supplier at 91.4%, as this new company resulted from the merger of Graphic Products Japan and Computer Engineering Inc.

Mr. Alan Christman, CIMdata’s Chairman and long-time author of the study noted that, “Even though there have been a number of recent mergers and acquisitions, the CAM software market continues to be highly-fragmented and competitive. There is no single supplier or small group of suppliers that dominate the worldwide market, and this is illustrated by the number of different market leaders depending on the ranking category.” CIMdata tracks approximately 50 CAM software suppliers and the rankings in the report list 15 to 30 suppliers depending upon the category. “2010 was a rebound year for the CAM software market as the estimated overall market size for end-user payments grew by 7.6%, from $1.239 billion to $1.333 billion. CIMdata projects that the overall market will continue to grow in 2011 by 6% to $1.412 billion,” stated Mr. Stan Przybylinski, CIMdata’s Director of Research, who led the data collection effort.

Other supplier rankings contained in Version 20 of the NC Market Analysis Report include the educational market; revenue by geography and industry; revenues for verification and post-processing suppliers; the total numbers of people in the company, product development, and direct sales; and the number of resellers per company. Version 20 of the NC Market Analysis Report is available for purchase by contacting CIMdata at +1 (734) 668-9922 or by emailing
