Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2015

SKU: SC102-15

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. A new report from Semico Research, "Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: Market Analysis and Forecast for 2015," forecasts the worldwide IP Market to approach 8 billion by 2019.
"The number of SIP blocks used in SoCs at all geometries continues to increase and is a main driver of market growth, " says Richard Wawrzyniak, Sr. Market Analyst for ASIC & SoC at Semico. "Another driver is the continued increase in the number of SoCs shipping into the market so you see 3rd Party SIP market revenues driven along two axies: larger numbers of SIP blocks on increasing numbers of SoCs. All this against the backdrop of the need for higher device performance at ever lower power consumption.  This is a powerful combination that will continue to drive SIP market revenues higher for the foreseeable future."
Key findings of the report include:

  • The Americas IP market was $897.2M in 2014
  • The CPU IP market will account for 33.4% of total IP revenues by 2019.
  • The IP market  in China is forecast to reach $1,308.4 million by 2019.  
  • The Security IP market will account for 6.9% of total IP revenues by 2019.

Semico Research tracks revenues by quarter, and 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

  • Interconnect SIP
  • Security SIP
  • Graphics SIP
  • Audio SIP
  • Memory SIP
  • Chip Enhancement SIP
  • Analog SIP
  • Logic SIP
  • Interface SIP

Each category consists of licensing revenues, royalty revenues and service revenues with actual revenues tracked from 1Q06 - 4Q14 and then a forecast of revenues from 1Q15 - 4Q19. 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 is so extensive that a single word document will not contain it all. Instead, a Word file and an Excel spreadsheet are combined together for delivery to customers, containing over 241 charts and 139 tables. The Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: Market Analysis and Forecast for 2015, SC102-15 is available for immediate delivery.
