Pockets of economic uncertainty remain, but 2012 is shaping up to be a better year for CAD than 2011. In JPR’s 2012 CAD Report, we put the number of CAD users for 2011 at just over 5 million. That means over 5 million sets of CAD were bought or upgraded in 2011. In 2011 we estimated there were 19.3 million seats of CAD in active use worldwide. Revenues from CAD software will reach $7 billion in 2012.
