RISC-V Cores' CAGR to Approach 160% by 2025, says Semico Research

For the most part, third party IP uses a business model that employs licensing and royalty fees. This payment arrangement has been successfully adopted by most market players and has matured with the IP market. In general, this IP model has allowed the market to be highly successful even though some IP has been constrained by the rules and regulations of closed architectures. Over the years, some users of IP have become disgruntled with the lack of design flexibility and the high licensing fees and royalties associated with closed architectures. The RISC-V Foundation was established to promote industry adoption and ecosystem collaboration of the RISC-V architecture. New research from Semico Research RISC-V Market Analysis: The New Kid on the Block (CC315-19), forecasts the compound annual growth rate for RISC-V cores between 2018 and 2025 will approach 160%.
"Open architecture IP allows users to customize and adapt cores to their own specific applications and provide the opportunity for unique differentiation," says Jim Feldhan, President, Semico Research. "RISC-V is an open architecture CPU core that is garnering industry wide attention. Semico, in conjunction with the RISC-V Foundation, specifically identified 35 markets and developed both a TAM and a SAM for each of these markets."

Key findings include:

  • The Communications segment is projected to achieve a 209% CAGR over the forecast period.
  • RISC-V will capture over 6% of the CPU core business between now and 2025.
  • The SAM for Automotive will have a CAGR of 160% over the forecast period.
  • The TAM for 5G infrastructure will reach 19 million units by 2025.
