Animation Software Market Size & Growth (2021 – 2026)

The Global Animation Software Market Size was estimated at USD 286.9 Billion in the year 2020 and is expected to reach USD 477.7 Billion by the year 2026, growing at a CAGR close to 8.5% during the forecast period 2021-2026. The growing usage of mobile internet and growth in smartphones is expected to boost the animation software market owing to the enormous opportunities generating for animated videos, movies, and others.

The increasing adoption of animation software by the various industry verticals for movies, cartoons, and games is considered to be a boosting factor for the animation software market growth over the given forecast period. Further, the increasing internet speed played a crucial role in expanding the demand for animated entertainment among different age groups. Moreover, the gaming platforms like Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, and Nintendo make use of the 3D animation software for 3D architectural visualization, editing digital gaming, and other special effects, thereby developing favorable market environments for the animation software market.

Animation Software is deployed for generating animated images by using computer graphics. This software consists of customized characters that can be used for dragging and dropping, automatic lip-syncing, libraries of animations, and predefined sets. This software is useful in Stop Motion, Flipbook Animation, 2D Animation, and 3D Animation. 

Market Drivers and Restraints


The key factors driving the growth of the global animation software market over the forecast period are the increase in the popularity of the internet and the broadcasting hours by cable TV operators and an enormous increase in adoption of animation software by various industry verticals for movie cartoons, and games. Moreover, one of the major growth opportunities for the animation software market is an increase in the usage of smartphones. The rising competition for providing animation applications that are supported by android and Mac platforms amongst the market players is driving the growth of the animation software market.


The continuous exposure to corruption and growing piracy of animated software can be the key restraining factors that hinder the growth of the global Animation Software market over the forecast period. Countries such as China, U.S., India, Russia, and many others are the piracy and License misuse hotspots. Various companies across the globe are forced to develop and device new strategies and tactics to manage their software IP owing to piracy issues. These issues may act as barriers for the players and thus results in the retardation of the global animation software market growth.
