Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues Analysis for 3rd Party IP

SKU: SC105-23

The 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) 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 IP market.

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 using 3rd Party IP. The IP market has evolved to supply the solutions SoC designers require to craft their very innovative silicon products in response to ever-changing market requirements.

Rather than looking at the 3rd Party IP market as a monolithic segment, tracking revenues by year, Semico Research Corp. has created this report to analyze the IP market by functional category and then sub-divide these categories into revenues by quarter. This quarterly data is contained in the accompanying spreadsheet (SC105-23.xls) and provides more granularity. This report provides the analysis of the data and some additional data on design starts, IP costs and SoC unit shipments. Semico has arranged the IP market in this report by the following IP types:

Memory CPU Core DSP Core
Graphics Analog Interface
Logic / Embedded Analytics Chip Enhancement Interconnect
Security Audio eFPGA

Each category consists of licensing revenues, royalty revenues and service revenues with actual revenues tracked from 1Q06 – 4Q22 and then a forecast of revenues from 1Q23 – 4Q27. 

At 120 pages long, Semico’s latest report--Licensing, Royalty and Service Revenues for 3rd Party IP—contains 22 Tables and 54 Figures in the report.  The accompanying spreadsheet contains 137 tables and 180 figures for a high level of granularity and insight on this topic.
