Nuremberg, Germany, Wednesday, May 22, 2013 -- (Business Wire India) 
Siemens has been recognized by leading PLM strategic management consulting and
research firm, CIMdata Inc., as the market presence leader in the collaborative
Product Definition management (cPDm) market segment for the 12th year in a row,
and in the Digital Manufacturing market segment for the eighth year in a row.
CIM-data's findings are based on in-depth data and analysis of the PLM market
and were announced late last month. 
Siemens‘ PLM software business unit addresses CIMdata's cPDm category with its
Teamcenter® portfolio, the world's most widely used digital lifecycle
management software, while its Tecnomatix® portfolio is the most widely used
software in the digi-tal manufacturing market segment.  
“According to our market research, Siemens continues to lead in Digital
Manufactur-ing with significantly more revenue than the next ranked provider.
The company also continues to set the pace in the critical cPDm market
segment,” said Peter Bilello, President of CIMdata. “Growth slowed slightly
in 2012 for cPDm, but will continue to expand at a high single digit growth rate
for years to come.”  
According to CIMdata's forecast, the cPDm market segment will experience a
five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5 percent, resulting in a
projected cPDm market size of approximately $16.2 billion by 2017, based on
total software and services investments. CIMdata's forecast for Digital
Manufacturing is estimated to maintain steady growth with a five-year CAGR of
more than seven percent. Over-all, CIMdata reports that mainstream PLM is
forecasted to grow at a five-year CAGR of over eight percent and continues to
see growth as a key enterprise investment. 
“This latest CIMdata report serves to highlight our consistent track record of
leader-ship in some of the most important areas of PLM,” said Chuck
Grindstaff, president and CEO, Siemens PLM Software. “We consider cPDm and
Digital Manufacturing two of the most critical value creators for our customers
