ASIC Design Starts 2019: New Applications and AI Become Market Drivers

SKU: SC107-19

Many of the traditional end-use applications are experiencing slower design start growth rates due to maturing markets and high design costs.  The unit volumes associated with all applications remain healthy, exhibiting an 8.5% CAGR through 2023. However, removing the unit shipments attached to the new, emerging applications drops the CAGR to only 4.3% through 2023. Looking at design starts and unit shipments for new applications such as the IoT (Internet of Things), the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI), both are expected to follow a higher growth curve over the next few years.  A recent Semico Research report, ASIC Design Starts 2019: New Applications and AI Become Market Drivers (SC107-19), forecasts that new applications will reach 13.5% of total starts and 40% of unit shipments over the forecast period.

The report contains comprehensive data regarding the current and future ASIC design start landscape.  The report is 107 pages long with 63 tables and 68 charts covering the following key metrics:

  • End market applications:

              *Industrial and Automotive

  • ASIC product types analyzed by design starts with unit shipments for:

              *Analog and Mixed Signal
              *3 SoC types
              *FPGAs and PLDs

  • Design starts for the 9 ASIC product types by
       *Process Geometry – 500nm to 3nm
       *Design complexity by application category and average gate count
  • Two years of history (2017 -2018) and a 5-year forecast (2019 – 2023)
  • A comparison between 1st time SoC design starts and SoC derivative designs
  • Definitions for the three types of standard SoCs and for SoCs with AI functionality added
  • Comparison of maturing to emerging applications for design starts and unit shipments
