DUBLIN, October 19, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Electronic Design Automation for PCB and MCM Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The report forecasts the global electronic design automation (EDA) for PCB and MCM market to grow at a CAGR of 3.27% during the period 2016-2020.
The availability of multiple functions on a single platform is an emerging trend in the semiconductor market. The rapid technological advances in electronic devices such as smartphones, notebooks, laptops, and ultrabooks have increased the use of these devices as multifunctional terminals that offer a range of new applications on a single platform.
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be high investments in R&D. R&D is an integral part of the semiconductor market. In 2015, the highest R&D investment in the semiconductor industry amounted to $56.4 billion. The year-over year growth in the spending was just 0.5% compared to the industry standard of 13% per year since 2010. The growth rate achieved in 2015 was the lowest since the downturn of 2009 and was below the CAGR of 4% during 2005-2015.
Further, the report states that design automation is the development of design methods best suited to address the challenges posed by emerging technologies. Design methods were initially based on standard cells and synchronous timing. The future, however, offers a bleak picture for EDA software tool developers. The advent of nanoscale designs has coupled EDA developers with significant complexity challenges. They need to develop design methods that can continue to scale in the face of the growing miniaturization of semiconductor devices. EDA vendors need to take care of the following attributes that are critical for their success. Maintaining all the attributes at the same time possesses a huge challenge for the vendors.
- Cadence Design Systems
