Forecast & Analysis Report on Semiconductor Intellectual Property Market

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Semiconductor (Silicon) IP Market by Form Factor, Design Architecture, Processor Type, Application, Geography and Verification IP - Forecast & Analysis to 2013 - 2020" report to their offering.

In the semiconductors and electronics sector, a semiconductor intellectual property core also known as IP Core or IP Block is a unit of architectural layout of a specific or whole part of a semiconductor chip. IP cores, after development by third parties, in general are licensed to semiconductor chip manufacturers. Or they can be developed in-house, owned and used by a single semiconductor chip manufacturer alone. IP cores can be used as building blocks within semiconductor chips to add advanced features and characteristics by developing them as per the prescribed architectural design.

The semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) market is expanding rapidly 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. 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.

The report on the global semiconductor (Silicon) Intellectual Property (IP) market analyzes the semiconductor IP industry's value chain, giving a bird's eye-view of all the major and allied industry segments to the semiconductor IP industry. It discusses the markets of various allied industry segments such as EDA vendors, foundry players, fabless players, fab players, and IDMs. The global semiconductor Intellectual Property market is classified by various types of market segmentations and discussed in detail with market estimates and forecasts for each of the sub-segments.
