Is Subscription-Based CAD Inevitable?

Is subscription-based CAD the way of the future? Other software vendors like Adobe and Microsoft seem to believe so. Adobe’s Creative Cloud and Microsoft’s Office 365 are the featured products on their websites and they will do everything they can to get you to get you to purchase them rather than the standalone versions.
But will CAD follow the same trend? I don’t have a Magic 8 Ball, but here are some reasons why I would argue the answer is yes:
Subscription-based CAD is conducive to product development needs and the needs of the organization as a whole. For example, release only one new product a year? Subscribe to a seat of CAD rather than purchasing it outright so you can have it when you need it. Or, do you have a need to reduce product development costs while increasing design quality? Subscription-based CAD allows greater collaboration at a lower cost. You can have the flexibility to have more of your design team focused on innovation in the conceptual phase at a fraction of the cost. Are you a consultant that lives on a project-to-project basis? Get CAD when you need it.
