By Business Wire News


Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recentglobal architecture, engineering and construction market (AEC) report for 2016-2020. This research report also lists nine other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global AEC market is characterized by the presence of well-diversified international and regional vendors. The regional vendors provide AEC solutions with limited operational capabilities and at comparatively lower prices than international players. However, as international players are increasing their foothold in the market, regional vendors are finding it difficult to compete with them, especially with regard to quality features of AEC solutions.

According to Amrita Choudhury, a lead analyst at Technavio for enterprise application research, “The competition in the market will become intense with an increase in product extensions, technological innovations, and M&A. During the forecast period, international players will grow inorganically by acquiring regional players.”
