Building Information Modelling Market Being Early Adopter of Latest Technologies, North America to Emerge Dominant

North America emerged as a major contributor in the market, with a dominant share of 33% in 2014. On the basis of end users, the global BIM market is led by architects.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/08/2016 -- The market for building information modelling (BIM) is expected to show steady growth in regions boasting easy access to the latest technologies and high strategic planning in the field of data management. Countries such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, France, Japan, South Korea, Brazil, the U.K., and the U.S., thus exhibit a high uptake of the BIM software. Most of these countries have started adopting BIM solutions to boost infrastructural development. While the high initial cost incurred on these solutions emerges as a major drawback, with the advent of cloud-based software, the BIM market is forecasted to witness widespread deployment.

Since on-premise software is expensive and requires frequent upgrades, their adoption among SME owners is very less. However, as per Transparency Market Research (TMR), this problem can be mitigated by opting for professional consultancy services. Therefore with functionalization of professional consultancy services for BIM, its deployment across SME construction companies will become more relevant.

In view with the aforementioned future developments, TMR projects the global BIM market to surge at a CAGR of 19.1% between 2015 and 2022. The market is expected to reach US$11.5 bn by 2022, from a valuation of US$2.7 bn in 2014.

Being Early Adopter of Latest Technologies, North America to Emerge Dominant in Global BIM Market

Regionally, North America and Asia Pacific have been exhibiting surging demand for BIM solutions. Among these regions, North America emerged dominant in the market with a share of over 33% in 2014. The impressive adoption of cloud-based engineering software will boost demand for the BIM software in North America, thus sealing its position as the dominant regional market through the forecast period. Furthermore, the robust construction industry and the region being an early adopter of the latest technologies, will fuel demand from BIM market in North America.

TMR pegs the North America BIM market at US$919.2 mn in 2014. By the end 2022, the market is expected to reach US$4.05 bn.

Growth witnessed by the market in Europe has also been commendable. The region held the second largest share in the global BIM market in 2014. The increasing adoption of BIM solutions by local government construction clients have been fuelling their demand in Europe. However, TMR forecasts the Asia Pacific market for BIM to exhibit the fastest CAGR of 21.2% during the course of the forecast period. The rapid expansion of the construction, engineering, and architecture industry across countries such as India, Japan, and China will boost prospects for BIM sales across Asia Pacific.

High Infrastructural Investment to Boost Deployment of BIM for Bridges, Roads, and Highways Construction

Based on end-users, contractors, architects, engineers, and developer constitute the key segments in the global BIM market. Of these, the architects segment emerged dominant in the market with a share of approximately 38% in 2014. TMR also expected the adoption of BIM among contractors to surge considerably in the forthcoming years. However, due to the rapidly increasing number of upcoming construction projects, the architect segments will continue to lead the market through the forecast period.

By end-use, the BIM deployment is expected to increase segments such as dam, bridges, education institutes, roads and highways, energy generation facilities, government buildings, houses and apartments, rail transit and aviation, factories and warehouses, and others. Of these, the roads and highways and rail transit and aviation segments to demonstrate highest deployment of BIM solutions. The rising investment in infrastructural development, especially across emerging nations, will boost deployment of BIM in the construction of roads, highways, and bridges.

Some of the leading players operating in the global BIM market include Pentagon Solutions Ltd., Beck Technology Ltd., Dassault Systemes SA, Tekla Corporation, Synchro Software Ltd., Bentley Systems Inc., Autodesk Inc., Nemetschek AG, AECOM, and GRAITEC.
