BIM Software Trends


Growing Number of Government Mandates for The Adoption Of BIM


BIM is one of the greatest technological innovations in the construction industry. However, due to various barriers such as cost and technological limitations, implementation is lagging in several countries, requiring strong government support for the successful deployment and development of BIM software. Authorities in most countries across the globe are promoting the use of BIM for all construction projects. Governments of various countries are coming up with initiatives and BIM implementation strategies to increase the adoption of BIM in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. BIM and its implementation are becoming mandatory for all centrally procured private and public sector projects in several countries across the world.Furthermore, the use of BIM is altering the way buildings are designed and built. BIM is currently becoming the legal standard for most countries, and others are working toward using it. Such adoption of BIM and the growing number of government mandates are propelling the use of BIM software, which is driving the growth of the BIM software market.


BIM Software Market Covid Impact


The construction and engineering sectors have already been dealing with various challenges such as lack of capital and credit avenues leading to insolvencies, multiple frauds, and a regulatory burden under the Environment Laws and the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. The COVID-19 pandemic has made this situation even worse. For example, governments have imposed partial and total lockdown. However, due to the restrictions put in place by the government, all the construction activities and most of the business activities across the country have been halted. Also, the lockdown has resulted in reverse migration and disruption of supply chains, which have caused delays and hindrances in meeting the obligations under the construction and engineering contracts. These are further expected to cause legal issues for the industry.


BIM Software Market Russia-Ukraine War Impact


Russia's invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing effects of the pandemic had a negative and unclear impact on the world economy. Many of the downside risks mentioned in April World Economic Outlook have started to manifest. The world's financial conditions have become more rigid due to higher-than-expected inflation, particularly in the United States and major European nations. With COVID-19 outbreaks and lockdowns, China's recession has been greater than expected, and the conflict in Ukraine has had further detrimental effects.


BIM Software Segment Insights


BIM Software Model Insights


The BIM software segmentation, based on software model, includes 3D, 4D, 5D, and others. In terms of BIM software model revenue, the 3D segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021. This is because the 3D representation model provides the key to supporting engineering and architecture components for decision making throughout the project life cycle. The 3D software model helps in the efficient and accurate capture of design in 3D, which accelerates its demand for building and construction projects.
BIM Software Segment Insights
March 2022, Autodesk Inc. announced Bridge, a new collaboration capability that allows construction teams to communicate important data with project stakeholders regardless of whether they are on the same team or working on the same project within the Autodesk Construction Cloud. Bridge allows teams to share certain sheets, folders, and files with collaborators without having to share the entire project's data set, giving teams autonomy over their separate data sets.


November 2020: Autodesk Inc. has announced the integration of Bridgit Bench's workforce management capabilities with Autodesk Cloud Construction. BIM 360 and Building Connected Integrations are powered by the construction cloud. This interface is expected to reduce double input and discrepancy mistakes, as well as improve resource management in the cloud and BIM 360.


BIM Software Application Insights


The BIM software segmentation, based on application, includes buildings, public infrastructure, industrial, and others. The buildings segment dominated the market in 2021. This is due to the high adoption rate across the construction industry for the construction of commercial and residential buildings. With the increased adoption of this software, even SMEs are effectively gaining interest in BIM for residential design, proper strategic planning, and preparation.
BIM Software Application Insights
April 2020: A new BIM solution will be introduced by Nemetschek AG and Spacewell in conjunction with the Integrated Workplace Management System (IWMS) program. This is anticipated to assist the project team and owner in managing and operating buildings using digital BIM data, intelligence, and visualization.


March 2020: Trimble Inc. has released a new edition of its Tekla structural engineering, building information modeling, and steel fabrication management software. It promotes better collaboration, permits information to flow freely, and aids in creating, designing, and overseeing the operational lifecycle.
