The electronic design automation (EDA) tools market was valued at $6.32 billion in 2018, and is projected to reach $9.49 billion by 2024, registering a CAGR of 7.8%, during the forecast period (2019-2024). Electronic design automation (EDA) tools have provided the silicon industry with the ability to innovate over the past few years. EDA is responsible for developing the design tools that enable the IC design process to be achieved at a design cost that allows the ecosystem to operate at a profit.
- EDA is an integral component of semiconductor design. Therefore, the growth of the semiconductor industry positively impacts the EDA market studied. The booming automotive, IoT, and AI sectors drive the growth of the semiconductor market, which requires electronic devices with complex designs.
- Since the inception of semiconductors, Moore's Law the prediction that the number of transistors in an integrated circuit will increase two-fold every 18-24 months has held true. However, in the recent years, scientists have increasingly come to believe that fundamental physical limits may soon make it hard to place additional elements on the same small area in an economical way, which could ultimately prove that Moore's Law is faulty.
- The increasing demand for advanced electronic devices with complex designs and the need to reduce the size while improving the performance of ICs compel IC manufacturers to increase their R&D investments and adopt EDA tools. Therefore, the demand for EDA tools, compared to the other sectors, is expected to be high.
