Nasty's link is for all of AutoCAD.  Remember - AutoCAD is used for more than buildings so don't think that differential is as large as what is shown here.  AutoDESK did recognize several years ago that Revit would be its primary building documentation package - not AutoCAD.

This is a little late, but in 2009 I did some research in BIM and CAD and found some intersting things.  I have attached two articles that I found on data related to BIM and CAD.... maybe this will help.  Also, Below is some brief information that I pulled out the the research

All of the software developer of BIM applications clam that when firms implement BIM into their business practices they can expect an increase in productivity ranging from 20 to 30 percent.  In the Journal of Information Technology in Construction, Becerik-Gerber and Rice survey reported respondents seen project profitability increased by 41% as a result of using BIM while 12% had a decrease (Becerik-Gerber and Rice).  The Key findings of the McGraw Hill SmartMarket Report are “Two-thirds of BIM users see a positive return on investment (ROI) on their overall investment into BIM, 87% of expert users are experiencing a positive ROI with BIM and 93% of BIM users believe there is potential to gain more value from BIM in the future (McGraw Hill).”  In 2007, firm using BIM software accounted for 28% of the market, in 2009, this has increased to 48% (McGraw Hill).  In both of the two sited documents above we can clearly see a positive contribution by firm who use BIM application.

Hope this helps

If it was 50% in 2009, I bet it's about 75% percent or more by now.  There's been a HUGE shift in the last couple years.
