The emergence of digitalization of the manufacturing process has led to the increased efficiency of the product development process. Before the era of digitalization, the designs of the prototype were drafted manually which led to the delay in the production time and also involved accuracy issues in the size and dimensions, since they were manually calculated. However, with the introduction of computer-aided design software packages, not only the efficiency of the designing and production process has enhanced but it also led to more creativity in the designs by various engineers and designers. The digitalization of designs has now given the designers the opportunity to explore and innovate their products in multiple end-user industries such as automotive, healthcare, electronics and electricals, among others.
The global computer-aided design market is estimated to witness growth at a CAGR of 6.35% over the period of 2018 to 2028. This growth in the market is attributed to the increasing demand from various end-use application verticals such as automotive industry, aerospace and defense industry, building and construction industry, industrial machinery industry, electronics and electricals industry, among others.

The introduction of computer-aided design software packages has added a new dimension to the manufacturing industry by increasing the overall efficiency of the manufacturing process. Computer-aided design software is primarily a software program used by designers, engineers, and architects to digitally represent the design of the product that is to be made or constructed. The computer-aided software products allow the designer to model the entire object much faster and help rectify any flaw in the design before the creation of physical prototype. At an initial phase, 2D designs were constructed through computer-aided software packages. The idea of simple 2D-computer-aided design, however, slowly developed into complex multi layered 3D structures with more precision and detailing. computer-aided software packages provide increased productivity to the designer as it improves the quality of design and communication through documentation, and aids in the creation of database for manufacturing. The software facilitates the designing of any product and helps in making changes digitally to get accurate results. Computer-aided software packages primarily involve tools that help in the geometrical representation of a design with different dimensions. The advent of computer-aided software packages has revolutionized the engineering, manufacturing, and the production industries due to the distinguished features of computer-aided software mentioned above.
The wide range of useful properties of computer-aided design software packages have led to the development of a number of applications, which are paving their way toward practical and commercial applicability. Currently, the major application areas of computer-aided design software packages include automotive industry, building and construction industry, electronics and electricals industry, pharmaceuticals and healthcare industry, aerospace and defense industry and others. Out of all these, automotive industry is the leading application vertical, where there is an extensive usage of computer-aided design software packages to design various automotive components and OEMs.
In terms of value, the global computer-aided design market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.35% during the forecast period 2018-2028. The high growth of computer-aided design software packages can be attributed to the increasing demand for designing software packages and wide acceptance in different end user industries. The use of computer-aided design software provides an economical solution for today's manufacturing needs due to its ease of usage and added functionalities over manual drafting.
Key products that contribute to the global computer-aided design market include CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, AutoCAD and AutoCAD LT, Autodesk Inventor, NX and Solid Edge, Creo, SketchUp, Geomagic, and others.
