Global EDA in the Aerospace and Defense Sector 2015-2019

Market outlook for EDA in aerospace and defense sector

The global EDA in the aerospace and defense sector has started to grow at a faster rate due to the rising demand for semiconductor chips. Technavio’s market research analysts predict steady market growth with a CAGR of around 8% from 2015 to 2019.

CAE emerged as the largest segment in the global EDA market in 2014. It includes ESL, RTL simulation, hardware-assisted verification, analysis tool, synthesis, analog and mixed signal simulator, formal verification, design entry, logic, and formal verification.

ESL tools are expected to grow at a faster rate compared to other segments in CAE. The major reason behind this growth is the system-level approach of the tools that enables users to design, verify, and simulate simultaneously at lower costs and in less time. RTL tools enable end-users to verify logic designs using one or more RTL languages and give an abstract of the complex circuit diagram.

Reduction in design time with EDA

Aerospace and defense manufacturers have increased their adoption of EDA to reduce design time, error and cost. For instance, Bell Helicopter adopted Mentor Graphics Capital product family to streamline the wiring design process for their Bell 525 Relentless program. The company used Capital Suite, which is an advanced electrical system and wire harness design software suite. With the adoption of Capital Suite, the company was able to reduce the time taken in electrical system integration by eliminating prototypes.

The company adopted Mentor capital logic, Capital Integrator, and Autoview software, along with applications of CATIA V6 MCAD integration. With the adoption of this software, the company has improved the relentless electrical system design process of Bell 525.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global EDA in the Aerospace and Defence Sector 2015-2019
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global EDA in the Aerospace and Defence Sector: Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aldec, Agnisys, Ansys, Keysight Technologies, MunEDA, and Zuken.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The market is likely to be driven by new trends like availability of cloud-based EDA. Vendors like Cadence Design Systems and Synopsys are providing Cadence Hosting Design Solutions and Synopsys VCP as their cloud-based EDA offering. Through cloud-based EDA, high initial investment on EDA is eliminated, which will drive the demand for EDA in the market.”
According to the report, the major factor driving the growth of the global EDA market in the aerospace and defense industry is the reduction of electronics component or system design time with EDA. With intense competition among the aerospace and defense industry, vendors are looking for new technology in software application to reduce product design time. This has led to adoption of EDA, where electronics components or systems are designed at a reduced time. The adoption of EDA eliminates the creation of prototypes, which leads to reduction in product design and achieves faster time-to-market.
Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the reduction in US defense spending.
