Virtual prototype market is projected to witness a CAGR of 20.32% during the forecast period to reach a total market size of US$622.734 million by 2023, increasing from US$205.224 million in 2017. Also known as Virtual modelling, Virtual Prototyping (VP) is a software-based engineering tool used in the process of product development by creating a model of the system and simulating its behaviour under controlled conditions with the help of computer software in order to approve its virtual design before making its physical prototype as well as present, analyze and test the various aspects of product life cycle.

Major applications of virtual prototyping are in industrial sectors such as aerospace, shipbuilding, transport and defense, oil & gas and automotive among others. The major benefit of virtual prototyping is that it enables engineering teams to analyze their model visually and mathematically before making a hardware prototype which saves cost, time and efforts considerably.

The need to minimize time and cost while maximizing quality in manufacturing industry where competition is intensive fuels the global virtual prototype market. Moreover, rising demand from end-user industries is also propelling the market growth. However, high investments required for building prototype solutions and inadequacy of trained professionals restrains the growth of virtual prototyping market over the forecast period. Geographically, North America and Europe are the major markets for virtual prototyping solutions due to the early adoption of sophisticated technologies in manufacturing. China and India will witness significant growth in automobile and aerospace sectors in APAC region, thus positively impacting the demand of virtual prototypes in the region.
