April 9, 2012 -- According to a new market research report "Semiconductor (Silicon) Intellectual Property (IP) Market (2012 - 2017) Global Forecasts & Analysis," published by MarketsandMarkets, the global semiconductor IP market by revenue is estimated to grow from $2.5 billion in 2012 to $5.70 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 14.47%.
The global Semiconductor IP market's value chain has grown to encompass a vast network of players involved in various segments. There have been tremendous changes in the landscape of the semiconductor IP industry's ecosystem with several developments in all the segments such as IP core developers, IP licensing vendors, open source IP vendors, IP aggregators and IP customers such as fabless, fab and foundry and IDM players.
The semiconductor IP market is growing in both the integrated circuit IP and system-on-chip IP sub-sectors, but the revenues from the SOC IP segment are expected to grow faster at an estimated CAGR of 19.16% from 2012 to 2017. The programmable (FPGA and PLD) IP segments in both ICs and SOCs are the fastest growing segments, next to the primary revenue contributor; the SOC processor IP segment which is estimated to grow at a phenomenal CAGR of 21.16%. All the IP segments such as application specific, programmable, digital, analog and mixed-signal, memory IP markets and so on, have much faster growth rates in the SOC segment, than their respective markets in the IC segment.
The semiconductor IP market is expanding robustly in size and prominence at a grow rate which is two times faster than the overall semiconductor market. Large-scale adoption of IP cores in the latest ranges of end-user applications of computer, ICT and consumer electronics sectors have lead to an increase in IP cores penetrating into various applications. The use of semiconductor IP in automotive and aerospace is expected to increase in the future. The percentage share of semiconductor IP market revenue in the global semiconductor market revenue is between 0.7% (2011) to 0.99% (2017). Note that the scope of this report only covers the silicon IP segment of the semiconductor IP market and does not include verification IP and software IP.
