COVID-19 Impact:

COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on communities all over the world and governments & businesses are scrambling to deal with the pandemic's difficulties as quickly as possible. Construction sites, on the other hand, have been shut down in a number of nations which is why organizations across the construction sector are embracing remote working. However, engineers and designers are adopting AEC software and building information modeling (BIM) software to collaborate digitally. Contractors and engineers all across the world are re-optimizing schedules and re-planning projects utilizing augmented reality and virtual reality simulations.

Integrated digital-twin solutions are also being created for end-to-end project assistance from design to implementation. Furthermore, contractors are increasingly using internet channels to monitor their employees' well-being through applications, manage precious resources more effectively, procure building supplies, and ensure cash flow. These factors are expected to increase the global AEC market growth over the forecast period.

AEC Market: Growth Drivers

Surge in infrastructure projects is likely to offer better growth opportunities.

As the world's population grows, so does the need for new buildings, malls, and workplaces, thanks to the advent of initiatives like smart cities and high-speed roadways. As a result, important stakeholders are using AEC software to run these projects smoothly and effectively. In the Middle East and most growing Asia Pacific nations, such as India and China, the building sector has grown rapidly.

For example, in 2017, Saudi Arabia launched a slew of major projects, including the King Abdullah Economic City in Rabigh, which is expected to cost roughly USD 27 million. In contrast, the Abu Dhabi Development Authority declared a budget of USD 6.8 million for Airport Expansion and a USD 500 million project for the Presidential Palace in Al-Ras Al—Akhdar in the United Arab Emirates. These forthcoming projects are predicted to increase end-user usage of engineering software such as CAM, CAD, BIM, and AEC, boosting the AEC market growth.

AEC Market: Restraints

High initial costs likely to hamper the growth of the global market

Despite the numerous advantages and cost reductions connected with architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) software, the initial cost is substantial. For example, Autodesk's Revit software costs between USD 3,000 and USD 5,000. Aside from the cost of the program, the cost of training and services is also rather significant. As a result, the high initial cost of AEC may stifle market expansion.

AEC Market: Opportunities

Increasing trend of IoT in the construction industry is likely to project great opportunities for market expansion.

Modeling and ordering procedures can become simpler with the use of IoT in construction, and the appropriate material can be supplied straight to the building site, eliminating the time needed for ordering. Also, prefabrication can benefit from IoT technologies. Using prefabricated building components instead of traditional building methods can result in better and more cost-effective solutions, as well as reduced construction waste. On the other hand, employing prefab for major commercial construction projects might be difficult to coordinate with the entire construction lifecycle. As a result, the Internet of Things (IoT) can assist in resolving this issue.

AEC Market: Challenges.

Lack of trained professionals poses a great challenge to the market growth

The construction industry still lacks trained technical professionals in many parts of the world. Companies are facing difficulties to get trained when they are dealing with two of the most challenging, fast-paced sectors imaginable. Also, it is much more difficult when staff is compelled to use obsolete technology that reduces productivity. Plus, it's not only architects and engineers that are in short supply in the AEC business, the gap between available employment and available talent is much larger.

Architectural Engineering and Construction AEC Market: Segmentation

The global AEC market is categorized based on deployment mode, component, enterprise size, application, and region.

Based on the deployment mode, the market is bifurcated into on-premise and cloud. Based on deployment mode, the market is bifurcated into the on-premise and cloud segment. The on-premise segment held the largest market share in 2022 and is further predicted to occupy a dominant market share during the forecast period. The major reason for the growth of this segment is the growing concerns related to the security of data on various projects. Thus, the maintenance of data security in construction projects is paramount as they are very valuable for companies. Various prominent companies in the AEC sector offer functional on-premise software for their wide range of customers in the infrastructure, industrial, and residential sectors. These factors drive the growth of the on-premise segment during the forecast period.

The component segment of the market is segregated into software and service.

On the basis of enterprise size, it is categorized into large enterprises and small & medium size enterprises. Based on enterprise size, the large enterprise segment held the largest market share in 2021 and is further predicted to grow exponentially at a rapid CAGR during the forecast period. The main reason behind the growth of this segment is that large enterprises tend to spend and invest more in innovative and breakthrough technologies to significantly improve overall productivity and complete projects at a much shorter duration. Thus, an increase in the integration of virtual reality, augmented reality, and the Internet of Things (IoT) with AEC among large enterprises drive the growth of the segment during the forecast period.

As per application, it is classified into construction & architecture companies, education, and others.
