1.Increasing shift to subscription model
In 2016, Autodesk will stop providing perpetual CAD licenses and focus more on subscriptions as they are expected to provide higher revenues for end-users.
2.Rising shift toward 4D models
CAD vendors are developing 4D CAD solutions that will enable increased operational performance. This improves the project execution strategy, leading to better execution and sequencing of construction schedules with granular level information.
3.Increasing adoption of synchronous technology
The synchronous technology provides proper control and immediate feedback of the model designed, thereby making the work easier for suppliers, engineers, and designers.
4.Rising use of 3D printer in CAD
The global 3D printer market was valued at USD 1.19 billion in 2014 and will reach USD 6.95 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of over 42%. 3D printers find an increased adoption across the manufacturing industry.
