E-shots Web-exclusive: CIMdata names CAM software market leaders

In its most recent market assessment report, CIMdata Inc. (Ann Arbor, MI; www.cimdata.com) named the worldwide CAM software market leaders for 2006 and projected those expected to be market leaders in 2007. For 2006, Dassault Systèmes clinched the top spot based on CAM revenues received, followed by UGS PLM Solutions, PTC, Delcam, Planit Holdings, NDES (formerly Hitachi Zosen Systems), Tebis, Missler Software, CNC Software, and Vero International.

Alan Christman, author of the report and chairman of CIMdata, says, “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 vendor or small group of vendors that dominates the worldwide market.” CIMdata tracks approximately 50 CAM software vendors.

Dassault Systèmes and UGS PLM Solutions were the major leaders with nearly identical revenues and a combined market share of 27.3%. The remaining eight vendors in the top 10 had a combined market share of 39.3% and the remainder of the vendors below the top 10 had a combined market share of 33.4%.

Worldwide, the report cites the five most rapidly growing CAM software vendors on the basis of revenue received in 2006 as Planit Holdings, Delcam, SolidCAM, Vero International, and TekSoft. Planit Holdings, Delcam, SolidCAM, and Vero International each achieved revenue growth in excess of 30% in 2006, as compared to 2005.
