SAN JOSE, California, October 2, 2012—The EDA Consortium (EDAC) Market Statistics Service (MSS) today announced that the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue increased 10.8 percent for Q2 2012 to $1593.0 million, compared to $1438.1 million in Q2 2011. Sequential EDA revenue for Q2 2012 increased 3.2 percent compared to Q1 2012, while the four-quarters moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four quarters, increased by 12.0 percent.
“In second quarter the EDA industry returned to double-digit growth,” said Walden C. Rhines, board sponsor for the EDAC MSS and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. “Growth was driven by North America and Asia/Pacific, although all regions were positive. CAE, IC Physical Design, and Semiconductor IP all showed double-digit increases.”
Companies that were tracked employed 28,205 professionals in Q2 2012, an increase of 5.6 percent compared to the 26,721 people employed in Q2 2011, and up 1.3 percent compared to Q1 2012. The Q2 number is an all-time high, surpassing the prior high point of 28,176 reported in Q3 of 2008.
The complete MSS report, containing detailed revenue information broken out by both categories and geographic regions, is available via subscription from the EDA Consortium.

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 & 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.
