Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/15/2017 -- Global Semiconductor Intellectual Property Market: Snapshot
The global semiconductor intellectual property market has numerous small and large players, currently. In order to tap into the rising demand for less expensive and highly reliable end-products with way more sophisticated features, many new players are foraying into the market. Meanwhile, well-entrenched players are scouting for suitable opportunities to acquire other IP companies to bolster their positions in the market.
An advantage of semiconductor intellectual property is that it enables manufacturers to design chips faster making use of existing blocks. Semiconductor intellectual property cores improve quality of devices and up efficiency of final product. Rising demand for reduced design and manufacturing costs, across the world have resulted in the growth of the semiconductor intellectual property market.
Serving to have a negative impact of the global semiconductor intellectual property market, on the flipside, is the detection of infringement of patented technologies. As a result, most companies in the market have changed their long-term licensing contracts to medium-term and short-term ones.
As per Transparency Market Research, the global market for semiconductor intellectual property will likely register a CAGR of 10.7% during the period between 2017 and 2025 to attain a value of US$9.1 bn by the end of 2025.

Use in Netlist and Synthesizable Cores Makes Soft IP Leading Segment
By type, the two key segments of the global market for semiconductor intellectual property are soft IP and hard IP. In 2016, the segment of soft IP accounted for a greater market share of 51.7%. The segment enjoys greater market share on account of the rising use of soft IP core such as netlist and synthesizable cores in a range of applications to improve the hardware quality.
The soft IP core segment is predicted to rise at a 13.1% CAGR from 2017 to 2025, owing to its ability to carry out testing in the virtual environment and optimize hardware components.
Based on application, the global market for semiconductor intellectual property can be classified into automotive, healthcare, telecommunications, consumer electronics, etc. Of these, the automotive segment is expected to clock maximum CAGR of 11.2% during the forecast period. This is linked to the rising demand of hard IP cores and soft IP cores in the automotive segment. In terms of market share, on the other hand, the consumer electronics segment led the way with a share of 10.9% in 2016.
