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 Application Specific and 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 & 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.
IC design teams face a constant growing pressure to make end user products smaller
(smaller form factor), more reliable, less expensive, with advanced features and superior
performance, all in the face of decreasing product life cycles. While semiconductor
manufacturing processes have transformed significantly to allow a phenomenal increase in
the number of electronic circuits incorporated on a single chip (with the advent of
System-on-Chips), initially, design capabilities resources have not kept pace with the
developments in this technology ensuing in a widening design gap between their advancing
manufacturing potential and restrained design capabilities. In order to address this
widening design gap, several semiconductor designers and manufacturers are progressively
choosing to license silicon-proven intellectual property (IP) such as processor cores,
memory and application-specific logic blocks and many more, from third party Semiconductor
Silicon Intellectual Property (SIP) companies rather than developing those technologies
internally. The SIP industry is a relatively new market compared to the gigantic parent
Semiconductor market and has been increasing every year at a tremendous growth rate owing
to this trend of third-party SIP.
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 in the increase IP Cores penetrated into various
applications. The use of semiconductor IP in Automotive and Aerospace is expected to
increase in 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.
