AutoCAD and LT sales crashed during the recession, as have sales of Pro/E. SolidWorks is down, through not as much. Inventor, we don’t know about, since Autodesk keeps those sales a secret, but an analyst tells me he figures Inventor is has suffered more than SolidWorks. 

Small privately-held CAD vendors boast of maintaining or increasing sales, no doubt helped by prices that are 5x to 40x lower.
