Semiconductor (Silicon) Intellectual Property (IP) Market (2012 - 2017) Global Forecasts & Analysis By Form Factor, Design Architecture, Processor Type, Applications & Geography - Featuring In-Depth Analysis Of IP Business Models, Value Chain, Industry Segments & Key Industry Players
The Semiconductor Intellectual Property market is expanding robustly in size and prominence at a growth rate which is two times faster than the overall semiconductor market. As process technologies shrink further in the sub-nanometer level, the gap between accessible silicon and designers' ability to utilize that space keeps widening. IP is vital in ameliorating design productivity at advanced design processes. With relatively slower growth in the overall semiconductor market, expense management has gained focus, which is driving the growth of third-party IP vendors. Semiconductor Players are actively outsourcing the IP design and development activities not core to their product differentiation. Today's System-on-Chips and advanced ICs integrate a great variety of advanced functionality into a single device to offer superior performance, with ever more IP cores on a single chip. The rapidly growing consumer applications demand extensively integrated functionality and competitive features, such as optimization between performance and power consumption, all at an aggressive price point. As new players are increasingly implementing a fab-lite or fabless strategy, the fabs and manufacturing processes are consolidating. By rendering access to silicon-proven, high-quality IP during the fabrication processes, key players are able to increasingly outsource IP. The growing trend of third-party IP Vendors and increasing licensing of advanced IP blocks by several key players are bound to change the landscape of the global semiconductor IP market.
