Global outlook of the electronic design automation (EDA) for PCB and MCM market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global EDA for printed circuit board (PCB) and multi-chip module (MCM) market to grow steadily during the next four years and post a CAGR of more than 3% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the miniaturization of electronic devices to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The constant demand for compact electronic devices from industries such as communication, automotive, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare equipment has induced semiconductor IC manufacturers to increase their R&D investments to optimize the IC performance while reducing the size. This led to the emergence of 3D semiconductor devices and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). MEMS and 3D ICs are much denser than the traditional ICs which requires finer deposition and patterning. This in turn, will induce engineers and designers to adopt EDA for PCB and MCM software tools to develop better end products.

The availability of online EDA tools will be one of the major trends that will gain traction in this market in the coming years. the high penetration of the Internet will induce EDA vendors to extend their global reach by offering their tools and software online. This would mainly help small-scale industries in designing and fabricating semiconductor chips as it reduces ownership and infrastructure costs and also helps in improving supply chain management.

Global outlook of the semiconductor IP market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict that the global semiconductor IP market will grow steadily during the next four years and will post an impressive CAGR of almost 15% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the increase in production of mobile devices to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The recent years have witnessed an exponential increase in demand for consumer electronics devices such as smartphones and tablet computers. The need to differentiate products will induce original equipment manufacturers to integrate advanced technologies and offer products with larger displays, higher resolution, swift processing speed, and better storage capacity. These advanced functionalities increase the complexity of mobile system on chip (SOCs). As a result, SOC designers will utilize semiconductor IP cores from third party providers to reduce the risk of design integration in devices, which will consecutively lead to the growth of the semiconductor IP market.

In terms of geographical regions, the Americas will be the major revenue contributor to the semiconductor IP block market throughout the next four years. The technological boom in Silicon Valley and the availability of angel investors resulted in the emergence of numerous small- and large-scale fabless companies in the US. Factors such as stable economy, favorable government policies, and the growing demand and acceptance for consumer electronics devices, will drive the growth of the market in this region.

Global outlook of the semiconductor process control equipment market

Technavio’s market research analysts predict the global semiconductor process control equipment market to grow steadily at a CAGR of about 11% by 2020. This industry research report identifies the need for miniaturized electronic devices of high precision to be one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the growth of this market in the coming years. The need for compact electronic devices from various sectors including communication, automotive, industrial manufacturing, and healthcare has compelled semiconductor IC manufacturers to increase their R&D investments and develop new ICs that are smaller and offer enhanced performance. Due to compact device sizes, semiconductor manufacturers are focusing on developing ICs that are denser and have a number of interconnects and transistors. This increases the need to ensure the elimination of defects or impurities in the mask and wafer, which in turn, will lead to a rise in demand for semiconductor process control equipment such as inspection systems.

In terms of geographical regions, APAC will be the major contributor to the market in the next four years. The increasing demand for semiconductor process control equipment that is driven by the presence of leading semiconductor foundries in countries such as Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, and China will fuel the growth of the market in this region.
