THE IP MARKET
According to the recent report "Semiconductor IP Market" by MarketsAndMarkets.com, the global market for semiconductor
IP is expected to grow from USD 3.09 billion in 2015 to USD 7.01 billion by 2022, a CAGR of 10.55%.
The driving factors for the growth of this market include increasing demand for advanced SoCs in the consumer sector, increased funding from governments and investors, an emerging IoT ecosystem, a recovering automotive sector and the growing popularity of miniaturized devices.
The SoC IP market was the largest market segment of the industry in 2015. The major driving factors for the SoC market are the increased demand for smarter and more power-efficient electronic devices, and demand for multi-core technologies and embedded graphics.
In addition, the increasing demand for energy efficient devices has led to the development of newer SoCs which are smaller, faster and consume less power. Plus, the increased demand for multi-core technologies and embedded graphics has led to development of new and advanced SoCs.
For designers who need standard or custom SoC IP such as Memory Compilers (Single-port, Dual-port, ROM, etc.), Custom Memory (Register Files, TCAM, BCAM, etc.), General Purpose I/O, Specialty I/O, Standard Cells, Controllers and PHY, Dolphin Technology is a market leader delivering quality, high-performance, fab-verified silicon-IP at a fraction of the time and cost of in-house development.
