BIM has offered a viable solution to various stakeholders in the construction industry to effectively collaborate and contribute to the overall completion of the construction projects. Benefits such as comprehensive approach to the overall project coupled with efficient coordination have led to the growing popularity of BIM software over other traditional approaches such as AutoCAD, 3DMax and CATIA.
The use of BIM software has enabled developers to reduce design errors and schedule projects efficiently thereby, resulting in waste reduction in terms of materials, time and other resources.
Furthermore, with adverse impact on environment accompanied with limited land area in most of the developed cities across the world, it has become imperative for construction developers to make optimum utilization of available resources.
Government in numerous developed countries such as the U.S., the UK, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Singapore and Australia, among others have mandated the use of BIM for various public and private construction activities. Thereby, BIM market is expected to witness significant growth in such markets during the forecast period from 2017 to 2025.
The global BIM market is fairly consolidated with few leading providers of building information modeling offering application specific modules. Some of the leading providers of BIM across the world include Autodesk, Bentley Systems, Dassault system SA and AECOM. Other prominent players in the global BIM market were Tekla Corporation, Nemetschek SE, Trimble Navigation, Intergraph Corporation, ASSA ABLOY Group, 4M Building Solutions and CYPE Ingenieros, S.A.
