The global electronic design automation tools (EDA) market was valued at USD 10.5 billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach USD 19.1 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 9.48% during the forecast period 2021-2027.
EDA, electronic design automation, also known as electronic-computer aided electronic design. It is a software tool for designing electronic systems such as integrated circuits and printed circuit boards and also delivers a superior level of scalability in circuit boards. Adopting this technology reduces costs, effective design time, and reduces errors. This allows the industry to witness the growing demand for these tools in the automotive, consumer electronics, and defense sectors and further strengthens the growth of the global market for EDA tools.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused minor disruptions to the entire market due to the limited hardware supply and logistics challenges in the first quarter of the pandemic. The COVID19 pandemic has increased the demand for automation in various industries and there is a need to continue work with the help of minimum labor. Therefore, the increase in automation is expected to create demand for semiconductors and electronic products, which will bring new growth opportunities to the market in the next few years.
Insight by Type
On the basis of type, the EDA tools market is bifurcated into on-premise solutions and cloud-based solutions. Between these two market segments, on-premise solutions are expected to grow faster during the forecast period. On-premises solutions are considered to be a flexible, safe, and reliable choice that can help business enterprises effectively manage funds, time, and resources into their core business strategies. The emerging cloud-based solutions will spur the demand for the EDA tools market. The increase in complexity of SoC designs emphasized the need to add new features and compute power to designs which can be done by cloud-based solutions as it offers scalability functionality.
Insight by Product Type
On the basis of product type the global EDA tools market is segmented into printed circuit board (PCB) and multi-chip module (MCM), computer-aided engineering (CAE), semiconductor intellectual property (SIP), IC physical design & verification, and services. Semiconductor intellectual property is expected to generate the highest revenue as it is considered a reusable functional unit that develops various building blocks in chip manufacturing through multi-vendor licensing. Furthermore, the extensive growth of the semiconductor IP segment is contributing to the growth of the global EDA tools market.
The integrated circuit (IC) physical design & verification segment is anticipated to exhibit a significant growth rate during the forecast period, owing to the increase in complexity of IC designs and surge in demand for great accuracy and precision of semiconductor devices. Additionally, end-users are increasingly adopting EDA IC design and verification tools to automate the design and routing of circuits in integrated circuits or application-specific integrated circuits (ASIC).
Insight by Application
The EDA tools market on the basis of application is categorized into consumer electronics, aerospace & defense, medical, industrial, automotive, telecommunications, and others. Among all these market segments, the telecommunications segment is expected to generate the highest revenue during the estimated period. EDA tools are being widely used by many companies in the industry to provide effective and efficient high-quality communication systems. In addition, it is observed that the rise in usage of mobile devices in emerging and advanced economies is promoting the use of EDA by various enterprises, thereby strengthening the growth of the global EDA tool market.
The increasing popularity of cloud computing, finfet architecture, and the IoT are the key factors related to the growth of the global EDA tool market. In addition, technology has reduced the cost and has resulted in making fewer errors. Moreover, increasing demand for miniaturized electronic products and semiconductor memory devices, increasing adoption of FPGAs (Field Programmable Gate Arrays) in data centers, the rising development in SoC technology, is also boosting the growth of the electronic design automation (EDA) tools market globally. Nevertheless, due to the increasing usage of cloud technology, designs have become more accessible and readily available. Effective data implementation is another feature that makes it economical and enables the EDA tool market to grow globally.
The uncertain economic conditions in the global economy due to the COVID-19 pandemic is the only challenge faced by the EDA tools market during the forecast period. The weak economy has negatively affected the growth of the industry, causing major companies to cut R&D costs and thus reduce electronic design expenses, which is a major factor hampering the growth of the global market for EDA tools.
Global industry players are capitalizing on market growth by developing innovative solutions in the global EDA tool market. EDA technology providers provide users with various solutions, such as advanced technologies that provide better accessibility and viewing experience, enabling users to manage quality and cost-efficiency in their business operations and to further promote products globally.
Geographically, the adoption of EDA tools in industries such as aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, and defense will set to increase the demand for the EDA tools market in North America as using this technology, will improve the flexibility, profitability, and smooth running of their organizations, Furthermore, due to the increasing adoption of cloud services and EDA technology in the manufacturing sector, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to have the fastest growth during the forecast period.
