eFPGA IP CAGR to Approach 42.0% through 2022, Says Semico Research

The 3rd Party IP market is a very broad market consisting of IP functions that SoC designers rely on to craft very complex solutions for ever-increasing market requirements.  Looking at the individual market segments by IP function and by quarter reveals many interesting trends that are otherwise obscured.  One of those trends is activity around silicon solutions for Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) along with eFPGA IP.  A new Semico Research Report, Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2018, (SC105-18) forecasts that, while starting from a small base, eFPGA IP will have the highest growth rate with a CAGR of 42.0% through 2022.
"By all measures, the IP market today is not a mature market, nor is it nearing maturity. This is evident simply by looking at its dynamic nature and the level of innovation IP users are asking for and the IP vendors are delivering," said Rich Wawrzyniak, Principal Analyst for ASIC & SoC at Semico Research Corp. "In a mature market this would not be possible since lower growth levels would not allow for adequate resources to achieve the innovation this market is delivering. As the end markets evolve, so too will the IP market evolve in its own right."
Key findings of the report include:

  • By 2022, the Memory IP market will account for 13.3% of total market revenues.
  • The Chinese IP market is forecast to be $1.5 billion in 2018.
  • Revenue for the SoC IP market to approach $10 billion by 2022.
  • Licensing revenues are forecast to reach $2.7 billion in 2018.

The Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: Market Analysis and Forecast for 2018 (SC 105-2018) also tracks revenues by quarter.  Semico has created this report to analyze the SIP market by functional category and then sub-dividing these categories into revenues for Licensing, Royalties and Services. Semico has arranged the SIP market by the following SIP types:
SIP Types Profiled and Analyzed

CPU SIP Interconnect SIP
DSP SIP Security SIP
Graphics SIP Audio SIP
Memory SIP Chip Enhancement SIP
Analog SIP Logic SIP
Interface SIP       eFPGA SIP

Each category consists of licensing revenues, royalty revenues and service revenues with actual revenues tracked from 1Q06 - 4Q17 and then a forecast of revenues from 1Q18 - 4Q22. 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)

This report includes the SIP market broken down by geographical region (Americas, Europe, Japan, Asia Pacific, and China) and provides a forecast for each region for Licensing, Royalty and Service revenues.
The amount of data contained in the report includes both a Word file and an Excel spreadsheet , containing over 267 charts and 153 tables in 126 pages.
