Surging adoption of business information modeling to boost AEC industry demand in Canada

The Canadian Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) segment held around 40% market share in 2019. Rising usage of 3D rendering software by architects to overcome design faults for cost effectiveness in manufacturing and construction phases will drive the industry growth. 3D rendered images are used to deliver immersive real-life experiences to prospective buyers associated with the finished product. This assists the buyer to make informed decisions on the basis of necessary information.

Canadian engineers and construction-related professionals are anticipated to adopt 3D rendering software to improve visualization & simulation to attract customers or investors. For instance, Lumion offers sophisticated 3D rendering software specifically developed for architects.

Increasing demand for gaming and digital entertainment to spur the demand in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific 3D rendering market held a significant portion with more than 25% revenue share in 2019. The industry is characterized by the increasing uptake of rendering solutions to improve game experience for professional & casual gamers. Moreover, the growing market penetration of animation tools in China and Japan to support special effects in digital media has accentuated the market growth.

China’s gaming industry witnessed approximately 11% Y-o-Y growth increase in revenue, accounting for USD 16.9 billion in the first half of 2019. This is another major factor contributing to the expanding market presence in the region.

Strong emphasis on organic growth strategies to gain a competitive edge

The global 3D rendering market is characterized by intensified rivalry among major players and is fueled by the emphasis on expansion of global footprint and strengthening partner networks. Key players are also focusing on in-organic growth strategies to gain market share and strengthen their position in the industry.

For instance, in April 2019, Adobe released the latest version of its 2D and 3D compositing tool dimension software to provide cloud 3D rendering feature. This feature helped the company to provide innovative cloud rendering solution that offloads the rendering process from on-premise machine to cloud.

The emergence of several SMEs in the industry, such as Easy Render, Pixologic, and OTOY, has pushed established players to continuously launch new products with added functionalities to maintain the share and profitability. Some of the companies, such as Easy Render, have monetized on the increasing number of freelancers by developing a global network of rendering professionals.

Some of the key players operating in the market are Adobe Inc., Act-3D B.V. (Lumion), Autodesk Inc., Blender, BluEntCAD, Chaos Software, Christie Digital Systems USA, Inc., Coral Corporation, Dassault Systems SE, Easy Render, Foundry Visionmongers Ltd, Keyshot, MAP Systems, Maxon Computer, Next Limit Technologies, NVIDIA Corporation, Pixologic Inc., SideFX (Houdini), Tesla Outsourcing Services, Trimble Inc., Unity Technologies, V Render, and Xpress Rendering.
