SAN JOSE, Calif., Jul 18, 2011 -- The EDA Consortium (EDAC) Market Statistics Service (MSS) today announced that the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue increased 16 percent for Q1 2011 to $1446.4 million, compared to $1247.0 million in Q1 2010. Sequential EDA revenue for Q1 2011 decreased 4.1 percent compared to Q4 2010, while the four-quarters moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four quarters, increased by 14.2 percent.
"First quarter 2011 results represent a significant increase in all product categories compared to Q1 2010, with CAE, PCB & MCM, IC Physical Design & Verification, and SIP all showing double digit increases," said Wally Rhines, EDAC chair and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. "Geographically, all regions realized increased revenue in Q1 2011 compared to Q1 2010, with the Americas, Japan, and Asia/Pacific regions posting double digit increases."
Companies that were tracked employed 26,457 professionals in Q1 2011, a decrease of 1.2 percent compared to the 26,767 people employed in Q4 2010, but up 1.4 percent compared to Q1 2010.

About the MSS Report
The EDA Consortium Market Statistics Service reports EDA industry revenue data quarterly and is available by annual subscription. Both public and private companies contribute data to the report. Each quarterly report is published approximately three months after quarter close. MSS report data is segmented as follows: revenue type (product licenses and maintenance, services, and SIP), application (CAE, PCB/MCM Layout, and IC Physical Design and Verification), and region (the Americas, Europe Middle East and Africa, Japan, and Asia Pacific), with many subcategories of detail provided. The report also tracks total employment of the reporting companies.
