1. The development of global EDA technology has entered the fourth stage

EDA software came into being with the rapid development of CAD software industry, which further made up for the needs of chip design. In 1984, DAC held the first sales exhibition with the theme of electronic design automation, and EDA began to really take off in the 1980s and gradually began to commercialize.

With the continuous development of large-scale integrated circuit technology, computer technology and electronic system design technology, the content of EDA technology is rising at an alarming rate. greatly improved. The development process of EDA technology can be summarized into three stages:

  

2. In 2019, the market size of the global EDA software industry exceeded US$10 billion

With the continuous development of large-scale integrated circuit, computer and electronic system design technology, the role of EDA technology is increasing at an alarming rate. According to the data of the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance, the global EDA software market in 2018 was about 9.7 billion US dollars; in the first quarter of 2019, the global EDA revenue reached 2.6 billion US dollars, a year-on-year increase of 16.3%. The global EDA market size exceeds 10 billion US dollars, reaching 10.5 billion US dollars.

  

3. North America is the most mature region for EDA development in the world

From a segment perspective, EDA has a characteristic that sales growth in tools and services typically lags behind chip sales growth. All areas tracked by the ESD Alliance, including Computer Aided Engineering, IC Physical Layer Design and Verification, PCB and Multichip Modules, and Semiconductor IP. At present, the IP core (SIP) transaction is the largest part of the EDA industry transaction scale, accounting for 33.61% of the market share; followed by CAE, accounting for 32.26%, there are many Fabless startups that need design tools and SIP.

  

From the perspective of regional development, North America is the most mature region for EDA development, accounting for 42.7% of the market share; followed by the Asia-Pacific region, whose demand has risen rapidly in recent years, accounting for 34.6% of the market share; EMEA and Japan respectively occupy 13.3% and 9.4% market share.

  

Note: APAC means Asia Pacific and EMEA means Europe, Middle East and Africa.

4. Analysis of the development trend of the global EDA software industry

EDA tools have provided an increasingly important development support for the integrated circuit industry in the context of a marked slowdown in the advancement of semiconductor manufacturing process technology. EDA design tools enable the IC design process to be implemented at the cost of design, enabling the ecosystem to operate profitably. In the future, the global EDA software industry will show the following trends:
