Usage of CAD Software Rising in Indian Manufacturing and Construction Sectors

The government’s Make in India initiative aims to make the country a global center of manufacturing.

The government’s Make in India initiative aims to make the country a global center of manufacturing. This is not only leading to the construction of manufacturing plants but also innovations in the technologies being used in various stages of the process, right from designing and raw material and component procurement planning to the actual manufacturing and testing. One of the technologies that are rapidly taking over the Indian manufacturing sector is computer-aided designing (CAD).

Being a replacement for those huge paper charts, CAD greatly reduces the time spent in designing complicated products and their components and even production equipment. Moreover, with CAD, before the design is put to production, it can be simulated to look for defects and evaluate its performance in the real world, which further reduces the redesigning and modification time. As a result of such advantages, the Indian CAD software market, which valued $445.6 million in 2019, will reach $696.9 million by 2025, at an 8.2% CAGR between 2020 and 2025.

Moreover, with the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) tools with CAD, specifically machine learning (ML), manufacturing companies are exploring possible designs and ascertaining their feasibility as per their requirement. Moreover, as the product and machines have become more complex than before, it is becoming difficult to produce them via conventional methods. Therefore, additive manufacturing, more-commonly known as 3D printing, is penetrating the industrial sector. As a result, to see which designs will perform better, industrialists are increasingly integrating CAD with AI.

Apart from the expanding manufacturing sector, P&S Intelligence credits the growing construction activities for the increasing usage of CAD software in the country. “Around 2027, India is projected to overtake China as the world’s most populous country…”, says the United Nations (UN). To support the burgeoning number of people, the construction of houses, commercial settings, and factories in the country is in full swing. This can be gauged from the estimates of Invest India that suggest that India will be the third-largest construction market in the world by 2025.

With the need to commission the projects in short time, especially in the face of the long delays the construction sector of India is infamous for, real estate companies are using CAD software to create architectural plans, look for flaws, and conduct advanced analysis. In addition, CAD allows engineers, architects, and operation supervisors to easily understand complicated designs, thereby improving inter-team communication and efficiency. Moreover, with the focus now shifting on sustainable living, the Smart City initiative has been launched in the country, which will call for advanced designing and construction technologies.

The expanding construction and manufacturing industries are therefore driving the Indian CAD software market, especially in Maharashtra, where the adoption of this software is expected to shoot up in the years to come. In recent years, the state government has announced a slew of plans for the construction of infrastructure and boosting its manufacturing output. One of the most-ambitious projects in this regard is the Delhi–Mumbai industrial corridor, under which Maharashtra will get numerous industrial and special economic zones, a greenfield expressway, smart cities, international airport and seaport, and a portion of the Western Dedicated Freight corridor.

Now, since the manufacturing and construction sectors are highly competitive, with companies needing to strongly guard their designs and other secrets, they have traditionally deployed CAD software on their premises. However, with the increasing awareness about cloud computing, CAD software is being increasingly hosted on third-party servers. One of the key steps in achieving profitability is operational expenditure reduction, where the cloud plays a big role by reducing the requirement for expensive on-site IT components, thus allowing for storage capacity scalability and employee mobility.

Hence, with a boom in construction and manufacturing activities, the usage of CAD software in India will continue to grow.
