Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues For 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2018

SKU: SC105-18

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.  This new Semico Research Report, Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: A Market Analysis and Forecast for 2018, (SC105-18) forecasts revenue for the SoC IP market to approach $10 Billion by 2022.
"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. The primary method to accomplish this today is through the use of 3rd Party SIP,” said Rich Wawrzyniak, Principal Analyst for ASIC & SoC at Semico Research Corp. “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. Activity around silicon solutions for Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is exhibiting great momentum currently and will certainly influence the SIP market. Semico expects this application segment to become a major driver of SiP innovation and inventiveness in the near future and is indicative of the evolutionary forces at work,” said Wawrzyniak.

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 $1045 in 2018.
  • While starting from a small base, eFPGA IP will have the highest growth rate with a CAGR of 42.0% through 2022
  • Licensing revenues are forecast to reach $2.665 Billion in 2018.

The Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party SIP: Market Analysis and Forecast for 2018 (SC105-18) 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

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.
