Market Trends of Generative Design Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Generative Design Market according to our research experts:

Automotive To Hold Significant Share

  • The growing trend of lightweight vehicle products has generated demand for generative design technology. Volkswagen Group unveiled a vintage VW Microbus, retrofitted with several reconceptualized components produced by productive design technology. VW is promoting this vehicle to highlight technologies they believe would be significant to the future of automotive design and manufacturing, particularly concerning electric vehicle production. Autodesk partnered with VW's Innovation and Engineering Center, California (IECC), on this project to maximize its strength while minimizing its weight. The generative design was deployed to produce lighter-weight parts by reducing mass and material use while maintaining high-performance standards and engineering constraints.
  • Also, in January last year, Electric vehicle company Arcimoto Inc announced that it is working with XponentialWorks and ParaMatters to design and additively manufacture lightweight components for its Fun Utility Vehicle (FUV). For deploying ParaMatters' AI-powered generative design software, several elements are being redesigned to generate alternative parts with much of the same performance characteristics but at a lighter weight.
  • Weight reduction has become a critical concern for electric vehicle efficiency as the less an automobile weighs, the less energy is required to propel down the road. More efficient energy consumption equates to a more excellent range per charge, which is one of the most important considerations for consumers when evaluating electric vehicles.
  • According to Autodesk, General Motors used generative design earlier in the previous year in a proof-of-concept project to develop a lightweight seat bracket prototype for its future electric cars. With such demand for light parts in automobiles, the demand for generative design is anticipated to increase significantly.

Europe to Witness Significant Growth Rate

  • The European automotive sector has risen significantly in the global industry. It has achieved record sales, and as a significant employer and a source of considerable grantmaking, it is an integral part of European society.
  • With the presence of several global automotive OEMs, Europe has the broad-scale implementation of 3D printing technology for design formulation and R&D applications in the automotive industry. Top automotive leaders, such as Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volkswagen, and many others, have produced a potential space for 3D technology and printers in the European market.
  • AUDI AG, a German automaker, has implemented polymer-based 3D printing technology for its production line at the Bollinger Hofe plant in Germany. Such instances of adoption are high, owing to the enhanced capabilities of manufacturers and lessened dependency on the supply chain for critical components that may result in a breakdown. According to Sculpteo, a 3D printing company, the highest priorities for Europeans using 3D printing are stimulating product development and offering customized products and limited series.
  • Moreover, the region is witnessing growth in the sales of electric vehicles. Electric vehicle sales are rising in Europe as diesel vehicle sales continue downward. The increase in BEV registrations was most noticeable in Scandinavian countries such as Denmark, which saw a quadrupling of BEV sales, and Sweden and Finland, which saw a tripling, followed by Poland, Belgium, and Greece. Further modifications in electric vehicles, such as increasing the battery time, and reducing the vehicle's weight, would demand generative design software.
  • Apart from the automotive sector, the region is witnessing demand from the manufacturing industry. The increasing demand for additive manufacturing and 3D printing in the region is anticipated to augment the generative design market.
  • To help industrial manufacturers improve the skills of their workforce, the French government has entrusted AIF with establishing a reference system of additive manufacturing and training skills across the nation. Within this context, Cetim, in partnership with Cetim-Certec, its associated center, has already begun to develop a full training program dedicated to additive manufacturing, which covers the entire value chain.
  • Further, the significant outbreak of COVID-19 in the region, affecting more than 120,000 people in the region, according to Worldometers during the pandemic, has significantly driven the market for 3D printing in the region. With the increased in demand for 3D printing, especially in the healthcare sector for manufacturing ventilators, the need for generative design has been witnessing growth.
