Architecture 2030 in American Cities

Announcements

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Computer-aided Design Market in India 2011-2015" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Computer-aided Design (CAD) market in India to grow at a CAGR of 13.5 percent over the period 2011-2015. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increasing investment in the Automotive industry. The CAD market in India has also been witnessing the emergence of 3D printing in CAD design. However, the emerging threat from open-source CAD software could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

TechNavio's report, the Computer-aided Design Market in India 2011-2015, has been prepared based on an in-depth analysis of the market with inputs from industry experts. The report focuses on India; it also covers the CAD market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

Crossrail and Bentley Systems launched a dedicated Information Academy to provide hands-on training to the Crossrail supply chain on the latest technology and software being used to design and build the new railway including Building Information Modeling (BIM).
