Digital Engineering is the fastest growing segment fueling growth of the building information modeling market

Building information modeling (BIM) is a digital representation of physical and functional characteristics of any built object such as buildings and civil structures. It gives architecture, engineering, and construction professionals insight into safely planning, designing, constructing, and managing buildings and infrastructure.

The global building information modeling market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9,908.7 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 16.% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:
One of the key trends in the building information modeling market is the adoption of digital engineering. Digital engineering refers to the integrated digitization of engineering activities through computing and digital technologies including building information modeling. It aims to improve productivity and quality across the project lifecycle from concept to decommissioning through digitally-enabled workflows and collaboration. Digital engineering is gaining popularity as it allows embedding intelligent connections between building information models and associative parameters which helps in automatizing key engineering tasks and optimizing designs using simulations and analyses. This improves constructability, speeds decision making, and enhances sustainability of infrastructure projects.
