This IDC Manufacturing Insights Pivot Table presents our best estimates and forecasts for the worldwide product life-cycle management (PLM) IT opportunity. This document provides IT spending forecasts for the following subindustries: automotive, high-tech electronic components, high-tech equipment, other high tech, aerospace and defense, chemicals, metals, pulp and paper, consumer products, other discrete manufacturing, and other process manufacturing. Industry and technology definitions and methodology are also provided. Regional segmentations include Asia/Pacific, the United States, Western Europe, and the rest of the world.
Breakouts for the following PLM applications included:
- Community automatic exchange (CAx) (computer-aided design [CAD]/computer-aided manufacturing [CAM)]/computer-aided engineering [CAE])
- Collaborative product data management (cPDM)
- New product development (NPD)
- Other engineering
The overall revenue for each PLM application area includes the revenue (does not provide splits) from software (license and maintenance), IT services (IT consulting, systems integration [SI], IT outsourcing, other IT services, and system security software), and hardware (storage, printers and MFPs, smart handheld devices, other peripheral add-ons, personal computers, high-end servers, midrange servers, and volume servers).
