In the electronic industry, several designers and manufacturers are using EDA tools to design and examine semiconductor devices. The adoption of EDA tools is leading to a reduction in cost, errors, and design time owing to which the industry is witnessing a growing demand for these tools from automotive, consumer electronics and aerospace, and defense sectors. Growing adoption of SoC and a high demand for smart wearable devices, such as smart thermostats, smartwatches, fitness bands, and pet wearable devices, are the key factors driving the EDA market growth.

Growth in the field of cloud computing and IoT is a major factor driving the EDA market growth. The tools are being developed by companies to expand the potential of the connected devices, fueled by innovations in the semiconductor, electronic, and software industries. Several electronic manufacturers are combining components on a single System-on-Chip (SoC), which requires highly complex chip designs, a prevalent industry trend. In addition, semiconductor manufacturers are adopting the miniaturization trend by offering its customers flexible chip mounting possibilities, reduction in semiconductor size, and integration of numerous functionalities into a single set, providing an impetus to the market growth.

A key challenge in the EDA market is the uncertainty surrounding the strength of the economic recovery in several regions. The weakness in the global economy has adversely affected the semiconductor industry growth in the last couple of years, causing several semiconductor companies to act cautiously and emphasize on reducing their costs related to R&D budgets, manufacturing, and by reducing their spending on electronic design services and products. However, with the strengthening global economy, the market outlook over the forecast timespan is inclined to experience an upward growth.

Electronic Design Automation Market, By Product

In 2016, the EDA market witnessed the applications of Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) segment, mainly in the consumer electronics market, which is predicted to continue over the forecast timespan. This is due to the rise in the adoption of consumer electronic devices such as laptops, wearable devices, tablets, and smartphones.

The development of smart devices necessitates an extensive R&D and results in an increase in the complexity of the chip design, leading to the adoption of SIP as consumer electronics manufacturers are mainly focusing on providing its customers high performance with limited chip sizes. Moreover, the rise in the number of smart devices has led to the development of innovative technologies. Technological evolutions, such as the rollout of 4G/LTE networks and IoT, are providing an impetus to the SIP market growth.
