The Design IP has become the largest category of EDA in 2016/17 (ESD Alliance, 2016 report), growing by 10% YoY in spite of the semiconductor industry affected by consolidation and exponential SoC development cost. What are the market forces that are fueling IP business growth? IP license price increases? Number of IP in an SoC? Make vs Buy trends? These forces can be linked with price, number of IP in a SoCs, technology node and/or make vs buy trends. Is injection of money from International funds creating short term growth?
