Semiconductor intellectual Property (IP) is a reusable component of the cell, chipset or a logic layout design. The intellectual property cores can be owned by a party or licensed to another party. The ongoing technological development in the semiconductor industry is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.
The ongoing technological innovation is creating the demand for automation across all the industries such as automotive, telecommunication, manufacturing and construction among others. The rising concept of connected cards and connected devices is driving the market for semiconductor industries. Furthermore, the growing demand for internet of things (IoT) is creating the need for interconnected devices which involves the development of sophisticated controller units. Semiconductor IP is an integral part of smart devices and hence is expected to witness steady demand during the forecast period. Moreover, the major players are undergoing frequent mergers and acquisition in the semiconductor segment in order to develop innovative electronic devices to sustain with the competition. Moreover, the failing price of semiconductor components is further boosting the demand of semiconductor IPs globally. In addition, the semiconductors are also being used in the healthcare industry in order assist the doctors to monitor their patients remotely. Moreover, the IPs is used as part of sensors units to perform several functions like temperature, humidity, pressure and heart rate sensing. The data collected can then be shared with the supervisors in order to understand the patient conditions.
However, the market is expected to witness a fall in the growth due to the technology shift that is expected to restraint the market during the forecast period. There is opportunity in the Asia Pacific market as the developing economies like India and China are increasing the implementation of new technologies as a part of urbanization plan. This factor is expected to the push the market for Semiconductors IPs in future.
The market can be segmented into form factor, design architecture, processor type, application and by geography. By form factor, the semiconductor IP market can be divided into integrated circuit IP and System on Chip (SoC) IP. In terms of design architecture, the market can be segregated into IP nature which includes hard IP core and soft IP core, by customization which includes customizable IP and standard IP core, and processor design which can be further sub-segmented into general processor IP and embedded processor IP. By processor type, the market can be categorized into digital signal processor IP and microprocessor core IP. The semiconductor IP find their application in several areas such as telecommunication infrastructure, computer and peripherals, security, networking, home entertainment, automotive and mobiles and tables among others.
By region, the semiconductor IP market can be segmented into five regions such as North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa and Latin America. North America is expected to witness slow growth as they are the early adapters of this technology. The demand for semiconductor IP in Europe is expected to be steady as the region is witnessing demand in the form of constant up gradation of their transportation network with the implementation of smart transportation in countries like Germany and the U.K. However, the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth due to the presence of developing regions like India which is witness robust industrialization and urbanization. Moreover, the region is the base for manufacturing for several major players due to the availability of the cheap labor.
The semiconductor IP market is witnessing strong competition from the major players. The leading players in the market include Mentor Graphics, Lattice Semiconductor, ARM Holdings, PLC, Cava, Inc., Sonics, Inc., Vivante Corporation, Renesas Electronic Corporation, Atmel Corporation and Imagination Technologies among other players.
