PLM provides many benefits to organizations, such as significant reduction in time-to-market the product, production cost minimization, and product quality and reliability enhancement. The various challenges faced by product development teams in enterprises include globalization, growing demand for mass customization, and quick innovation. These challenges are leading to a growing need for PLM solutions, which provide the collaborative environment and knowledge management of a product’s lifecycle process.

Key factors driving the growth of the PLM market for consumer products and retail end-use include industrialized nations, growing industry, and MNC expansion in emerging regions, a shift from traditional end-use sectors to non-traditional end-use sectors, such as retail and consumer products and packaged goods, high return on investment (ROI), and reduction in time-to-market for products and operational costs.
