The Finite Element Analysis (FEA) market in Australia is to reach US$11.78 million by 2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is increasing need among vendors to manufacture high-quality products. The FEA market in Australia has also been witnessing exploring potential of FEA software for new end-users. However, increased outsourcing could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The vendors in the FEA market in Australia are exploring the potential of FEA software to new end-users. Currently, industries such as Mining Equipment, Industrial Machinery, Infrastructure and Construction Equipment, and Automotive are some of the major end-users in the FEA market in Australia. It is expected that during the forecast period the market vendors will increase their focus on new potential end-users such as Healthcare and Consumer Durables industries. The FEA vendors in Australia are expected to increase their revenue during the period 2012-2016 because of the expected increase in the demand for FEA software from these end-users during the same period.

The most important trend is the increasing need among vendors to manufacture high-quality products.
