SAN JOSE, Calif. -- August 8, 2013—The EDA Consortium (EDAC) Market Statistics Service (MSS) today announced that the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue increased 8.1 percent for Q1 2013 to $1668.5 million, compared to $1544.2 million in Q1 2012. Sequential EDA revenue for Q1 2013 decreased 6.2 percent compared to Q4 2012, while the four-quarters moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four quarters, increased by 7.0 percent. The total revenue for the most recent 4 quarters (Q2 2012 through Q1 2013) was $6660.5 Million.
“The EDA industry continues to grow in Q1 2013,” said Walden C. Rhines, board sponsor for the EDAC MSS and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. “Services and IP were especially strong, and PCB was the strongest major product category. Geographically, the Asia Pacific region reported double digit growth, with the Americas and Europe/Middle East/Africa regions also positive.”
Companies that were tracked employed 29,360 professionals in Q1 2013, an increase of 5.41 percent compared to the 27,848 people employed in Q1 2012, but down 0.7 percent compared to Q4 2012.

About the MSS Report
The EDA Consortium Market Statistics Service reports EDA industry revenue data quarterly and is available to EDAC members. 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.
