The independent research company CIMdata Inc. published Version 14 of its “NC Software and Related Services Market Assessment” in June. This market report provides information about the worldwide market for numerical control software products and services. SolidCAM was named in this year’s report as the most rapidly growing CAM vendor in the world in 2004. The company experienced growth of 51.1% last year.
“We’re pleased that CIMdata is projecting SolidCAM to be the fastest-growing CAM software vendor again in 2005,” says SolidCAM chief executive officer Emil Somekh. “Our estimated growth rate is 41%.”
SolidCAM has been experiencing steady significant growth since the start of 2003, when the company achieved Certified Gold Partner status as the seamlessly integrated CAM engine for SolidWorks.
The SolidCAM+SolidWorks bundle is giving SolidCAM resellers a powerful competitive tool in the global CAD/CAM market. SolidCAM’s expansion continues worldwide. For example in the Asia-Pacific region, SolidCAM now has resellers in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia.
