The 2014 CAD/BIM Market Survey was an A2K Technologies initiative with the sole purpose to provide peer-driven statistics and data to leaders within the architecture, engineering, construction, infrastructure, manufacturing and government sectors.

Based on an online survey of 300 professionals throughout Australia and New Zealand, the Key Findings Report provides insights into the current state of technology, innovation, business challenges and pain points in the CAD/BIM sector.

The Report focuses on the adoption of design technology, particularly Building Information Modelling (BIM) and 3D computer-aided design (CAD).

Eighty-five percent of respondents said adopting new technology is either extremely or moderately important, while 92 percent said they already experiment with new technologies or they would like to.

Adoption of new technology stands out as an important factor for businesses to remain competitive, particularly as the market increasingly expects high quality renders, performance analysis and BIM processes to enforce standards at each stage of design, so the final stage requires less effort.

Report snapshot:

·       Almost three quarters (74%) of respondents have either implemented BIM already or will do so in the next few years, while 73% have already moved to 3D and a further 16% plan to.

·       Architecture, Engineering and Construction has the highest level of BIM adoption, at 64%.

·       Only 23% of manufacturing industry has adopted BIM, however 77% of manufacturers believe inter-departmental collaboration is extremely important.

·       New Zealand trails Australia in BIM adoption, with only 36% of organisations having implemented BIM to date, compared to 49% in Australia.

·       Only 6% of respondents said the majority or all of the technology they use is in the cloud.

·       When considering concerns with current technology, training topped the list, with 27% pronouncing this as their biggest pain point. This is unsurprising when considering that 48% rely on their peers for training, or are self-taught.

The 2014 CAD/BIM Market Survey Key Findings Report was sponsored by Autodesk, and produced by A2K Technologies, an industry-leading solutions, training, consulting and management firm specialising in design technology.
