October 2, 2013 -- The 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) market has seen great innovation in the products it offers to System-on-a-Chip (SoC) designers over the last ten years. If any market segment in the semiconductor industry typifies the intense evolutionary pressures that the entire electronics market has undergone, it is the 3rd Party SIP market.
According to the new report from Semico Research, Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues For 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2013,the CAGR for this market will exceed 19% from 2013 through 2017.
"Most of these evolutionary forces are driven by the need to integrate more functionality in fewer devices at the system level and in ever-smaller footprints", says Rich Wawrzyniak, Senior Analyst. "The primary method to accomplish this today is through the use of 3rd Party SIP. The SIP market has evolved to supply the solutions SoC designers require to craft their very innovative silicon products in response to ever-changing market requirements."
Key research findings include:
- The Americas IP market will increase over the forecast period to $1,701 million by 2017.
- The CPU IP market is the largest IP category today, and accounted for 31.7% of total market revenues in 2012.
- By 2017, the Memory IP market will account for 13.6% of total market revenues.
- IP royalty revenues increase faster than IP License revenues through the forecast period.
Rather thanlooking at the 3rd Party SIP market as a monolithic whole, tracking revenues by year, Semico's new report, Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues For 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2013, analyzes the SIP market by functional category and then sub-divides these categories into revenues by quarter in the following SIP types:
- Chip Enhancement
Each category consists of licensing revenues, royalty revenues and service revenues with actual revenues tracked from 1Q06 - 4Q12 and then a forecast of revenues from 1Q13 - 4Q17. In addition, based on other research Semico has conducted to gather data in the SoC design start landscape, three charts are included for each IP category that shows the following data:
- Average Licensing Revenues Per SoC Design ($K)
- Average Royalty Revenue Per SoC ($0.00)
- Average Service Revenues Per SoC Design ($K)
The report includes a Word Document and an accompanying Excel spreadsheet containing over 241 charts and over 139 tables.
