Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue: Global Engineering Applications Market in Civil Engineering & Construction 2008-2012 (http://www.reportlinker.com/p0176003/Global-Engineering-Applications-Market-in-Civil-Engineering--Construction-2008-2012.html)
Engineering software automates all the business processes and data management activities; from concept planning to execution (manufacturing, construction, or others).
Civil Engineering & Construction deals with the design, construction and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment. These include works such as bridges, roads, canals, dams, and buildings.
Engineering software offers products and solutions for the architectural, engineering & construction, manufacturing, geospatial mapping, digital media, and entertainment market. It enables customers to experience their ideas digitally, and visualize and simulate a real-world performance - early in the design process through digital prototyping. This capability offers the designers and engineers the flexibility to optimize and improve their designs, before they actually begin the manufacturing process; thus, helping save time & money, improving quality, and fostering innovation for a competitive advantage.
Over the previous decade, the Engineering software market has seen a consistent year-on-year growth; and despite the recession, investments continued during the early 2008. However, towards the end of 2008, there was a slight slowdown in the investments, as recession continued to affect the manufacturing industry. The Engineering software market is expected to grow during the first half of 2010.
The report by TechNavio Insights forecasts the market size of the global engineering applications in civil engineering & construction 2008-2012. Further, it discusses the segmentation of this market into various geographic regions. It also identifies the key market trends, drivers and challenges and profiles some of the key vendors of this market.
