Global Semiconductor Memory IP Market 2017-2021

Global Semiconductor Memory IP Market 2017-2021

About Semiconductor Memory IP

Semiconductor IPs are an integral part of electronic design automation (EDA). They help design engineers and developers create SoCs. The growing complexity of semiconductor chip design increases the importance of semiconductor IPs. Generally, IP rights remain with the company that owns the chip design and licenses it to other firms. These chip design components are referred to as IP core or building blocks.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global semiconductor memory IP market to grow at a CAGR of 11.27% during the period 2017-2021.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global semiconductor memory IP Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global semiconductor memory IP market: ARM, Rambus, Cadence Design Systems, and Synopsys.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Mentor Graphics, eSilicon, Dolphin Integration, and Kilopass.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is emergence of IoT. IoT can be defined as a network of physical objects or things embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity. IoT involves M2M communication, enabling devices to exchange and act upon information by eliminating human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction. According to networking equivalent, Metcalfe's Law, formulated by Robert Metcalfe, the value of a telecommunication network is proportional to the square of the number of devices connected to it.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing demand for mobile devices. Consumer electronic devices such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets have witnessed significant growth in the last decade. The growth in the semiconductor industry is proportional to the growth in the consumer electronics industry. Mobile computing devices include smartphones, tablets, and wearables.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is high investments due to increased complexity of IP core design. The design complexity and developmental costs of semiconductor memory IPs are increasing. This is because semiconductor memory IP vendors need to invest additional time and money to develop complex algorithms to meet the growing needs of customers. Huge R&D investments by semiconductor memory IP vendors are resulting in a high price per license and increased royalty charges.
