The 2022 Architectural Visualization Rendering Survey is an update from our 2021 survey 
Responses were gathered between March 01, 2023 and July 31, 2023 via CGarchitect’s community (social media & email newsletter) and through Facebook groups and software forums associated with real-time engines and architectural visualization.  A total of 976 responses were received collectively through all channels.  
For the purposes of Margin of Error calculations and market calculations, we are assuming a total market size of 150,000 people that are involved specifically in AEC visualization/rendering. Unless otherwise noted, the results have a Margin of Error of +/- 4% with a Confidence Level of 95%.

Which 3D renderer(s) do you use for architectural visualization?


Are you currently experimenting with any additional rendering engines?


Which rendering engine(s) are you currently testing or experimenting with?


Margin of Error of +/- 5% with a Confidence Level of 95%

How likely are you to introduce a new 3D renderer into your workflow in the next 12 months?
