Finite Element Analysis (FEA) Software is a tool for predicting the reaction of a developing product to real world forces. It is a computerized method of analyzing the effects of heat, vibration, fluid flow, fatigue and other physical effects on a product. The finite element analysis software rules out the possibilities of whether a product will wear out or breakdown and the chances of it working as the way it was designed. Generally, there are three group of elements which are one-dimensional (1D), two-dimensional (2D), and three-dimensional (3D) elements. Moreover, FEA is used to find the vulnerabilities in their design prototypes by means of calculations, models and simulations to predict how a product/object might behave under various physical conditions. With the recent advancements in automobile engineering as well as rising demand of automotives across the globe is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global finite element analysis software market during the forecast period. It was observed that, in the year 2021, there was ~5 % growth in the trade surplus generated by the European Union (EU) auto industry.

Global Finite Element Analysis Software Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers
