Simulation Software Market Size To Reach $51.11 Billion By 2030

January 2024 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Simulation Software Market Growth & Trends

The global simulation software market size is estimated to reach USD 51.11 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 13.6% from 2024 to 2030, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. Simulation software is being used for training personnel. It is replacing the traditional real-time training techniques, which incurred huge investments annually for companies. The use of simulation for training purposes helps reduce training costs as companies need to make a one-time investment for software implementation. The software also helps enterprises minimize production costs by enhancing the product development process.

The need for developing prototypes and the chances of product failure are considerably reduced through the use of simulators, as the product is virtually tested for all possible glitches before the commencement of production. Furthermore, simulation-based tools help product developers reduce the time spent on R&D processes as it enables them to obtain a realistic view of a product or process under study or review. Organizations across the globe are increasingly implementing the program and analyzing tools to enhance the entire product development cycle, reduce time to production, ensure delivery of high-quality products in minimal time, and reduce the overall cost to the company with respect to R&D.

It requires a skilled workforce or personnel with the required knowledge and understanding. This is leading to several manufacturers being reluctant to adopt this technology as the need for a skilled workforce incurs additional costs. The COVID-19 pandemic had an adverse impact on the global market. The closure of national and international borders in major countries, such as China, Japan, and India, has caused severe supply chain disruptions. In addition, the temporary shutdown of manufacturing operations has led manufacturing companies to face severe budgetary issues, resulting in delayed subscription renewal payments during the pandemic’s initial phase. However, recovering economies and opening businesses are expected to help the market grow at a rapid pace over the forecast period.
