Introduction to the Market
Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software solution provides efficient methods for manufacturing critical 2D and 3D objects with ease and better quality. It enables the calculation of tool paths based on the geometric dimension of the model, generates G code and M code, and controls feed rate, tooling, and other spindle-related operations. This software solution assists the companies toward developing products with superior quality, plush fine finish, and at minimal time. The CAM solutions are adopted by several industries such as the Automotive, Aerospace, Industrial Machinery, Electrical and Electronics, Consumer Durables, Shipbuilding, Healthcare, and Woodworking.
The Global CAM market is expected to post a CAGR of 6.97 percent during the period 20122016. The Global CAM market is driven by many growth factors; one is the need for enhanced part-production visualization. However, the increasing need for higher investment could affect the growth of the market during the forecast period.
