Autodesk is investing in emerging Design & Make technologies like AI, machine learning, and cloud to provide innovative solutions to Indian customers. One of the key ways in which it is reimagining the future is by investing in new uses of Autodesk platforms and unified data management. To further drive growth in India, Autodesk has identified sustainability as a key area of focus.  
The CAD market in India continues to show strong growth potential. Autodesk’s market share in India grew from 18% in 2022 to 22% in 2023, driven by the launch of new cloud-based products and services tailored for Indian customers. Autodesk continues to strengthen its position in India’s rapidly growing IT and CAD markets through acquisitions, investments in emerging technologies, sustainability initiatives, and new product offerings.  


Autodesk has a long history of building trust with its customers. Here are some of the ways that Autodesk is winning the trust of customers - 

Focusing on customer satisfaction - Autodesk is committed to providing its customers with the best possible experience. With its solution advisor, customers can easily build a plan to achieve their goals.
