Market Dynamics

Driver: Advancement in multicore technology for consumer electronics sector

Consumer electronics are becoming smarter and more intelligent due to increasing research and development activities. This is due to advanced components and chips made with the help of complex IPs designed for every application. The consumer electronics sector offers tremendous growth opportunities for the semiconductor industry and the semiconductor IP market players. The semiconductor industry is highly dependent on consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, and memory products. ICs and SoCs are extensively used in these consumer electronics applications, and an increase in demand for these products is reinforcing the semiconductor market and the market.

Presently, the consumer electronics sector holds a major share of the global semiconductor IP market. With the success of multicore technology in the embedded computing sector of large form factor, mostly in computing devices such as desktops, laptops, netbooks, and notebooks, the industry is expected to have a successful transformation in small form factor devices such as smartphones, tablet PCs, and other portable electronic gadgets such as wearable electronics.

The market for multicore processors is growing rapidly owing to the advancement of personal computing for consumer electronics globally and emerging technological advancements such as octa-core processors for smartphones. These multicore processors would present opportunities for the growth of the global semiconductor IP market in the future. Today, most portable consumer electronics run on multicore (dual-core or quad-core) processors. These processors are helping companies to be competitive in the market for consumer electronics by exhibiting fast, efficient, and error-free performance

Restraint: Constant changes in technology

Technology is an ever-changing concept, especially in the semiconductor industry. In each leap, new technology would enter the market and break the equilibrium. Same applies to the IC industry where process nodes play a vital role. Change in nodes of a semiconductor chip changes design complexity, chip form factor, and IP core design architecture. Restraint in advanced SoC design is the effective implementation of these chips in advanced technologies, such as 20 nm planar and FinFET processes.

Migration to an advanced technology node increases design cost for IP vendors, while payments for licensing the IP suitable as per the new technology node may not match up to the rise in expenditure. The overall cost of SoC designs, including silicon IP and software IP, is increased by ~40%, with a shift in the node size from 32 nm to 28 nm and are expected to increase by 30% again with a shift  of 22 nm. The overall cost of SoC silicon IP design is approximately increased by 36% with the node of 28 nm.

As an impact of the abovementioned changes in process nodes of chip manufacturing on the IP industry and IP cores, rapidly changing process nodes turn out to be a restraint for the global semiconductor IP market.

Opportunity: Embedded DSP IP and programmable DSP IP segments to have tremendous growth potential in the coming future

Rapid developments in the embedded DSP IP and programmable DSP IP segments is one of the latest trends garnering focus in the semiconductor IP industry and its subsegment. The preference for the advanced embedded DSPs, sophisticated programmable DSPs, and the rising demand for them have gained a lot of attention from the major players of the DSP industry and its parent industry—the global semiconductor industry—over the past 5 years.

Embedded processing comprises embedding IP cores in a system (SoC) or on an IC board. Until now, chip size limitations kept the number of cores per DSP chip confined to 1, 2, or 4 at maximum; however, this trend has changed recently, wherein new semiconductor processes have facilitated reduction in size, thereby allowing single-chip DSPs to become multicore, with considerable input/output (I/O) and on-chip memory, while still maintaining the required die size for good yield.

Factors such as power consumption and the need for large on-chip memory have further triggered the embedded DSP market; driving the development of such multicore DSPs into SoCs. The DSP-based SoCs are flourishing with rapid demand for several end-use applications such as smartphones and tablet PCs. Overall, the embedded DSP segment is growing at a very fast pace with increasing demand for DSP SoCs, thereby rapidly boosting the demand for embedded DSP IP cores.

The current sophisticated DSP-based applications and products are expected to exhibit advanced performance and flexibility with less time-consuming development cycles, economical cost, and power consumption.

Challenge: Impact of IP thefts, counterfeits, and conflicts on the semiconductor IP market

Major problems faced by the semiconductor IP industry are IP thefts, counterfeits, and conflicts; the impact of these problems has increased over the past few years. The semiconductor IP market in APAC is a large segment of the global semiconductor IP market based on geography, with its percent revenue share growing every year. Several IP players focus on APAC for the semiconductor IP industry, and its value chain follows the same trend as its parent industry—the semiconductor industry.

A majority of IP thefts, counterfeits, and conflicts are done in APAC. It is a well-known fact that IP thefts and counterfeits incur high cost. IP thefts mainly take place in ASIC and FPGA semiconductor IP cores. Over the past few years, IP thefts have extended their reach to other critical submarkets of the semiconductor IP market.

Ramification in FPGAs to meet the advance technological requirement of low power and high output adds value to their IP designs. IP counterfeiting, particularly including the development of counterfeit components and system-level designs of IP cores, is the major economic threat to current business models followed worldwide. Static random-access memory (static RAM or SRAM) FPGAs are most vulnerable to IP theft and frequently fail to offer full functionality. However, nonvolatile flash and anti-fuse FPGAs are more secure against IP theft than ASIC technologies, which are typically aimed to substitute ASIC technologies. To fend off against IP thefts, industry experts recommend the use of nonvolatile Flash and anti-fuse FPGAs.

Another major aspect that creates a serious problem and fuels IP thefts, counterfeits, conflicts, and piracy is the shadow semiconductor supply chain. The counterfeit semiconductor chip supply chain, involving pirated semiconductor IP, is more catastrophic to the global semiconductor industry and suppliers, intermediaries, and customers.

Several efforts are being made worldwide to address this major issue. For example, the World Semiconductor Council (WSC), which currently comprises the semiconductor industries in Europe, Japan, China, Taipei, Korea, and the US, has a dedicated task force for IP theft prevention. This force is a pool of IP experts from all major geographies involved in the semiconductor manufacturing. WSC also accomplishes the execution of various national layout design laws and has laid out a multipronged approach to restrict the counterfeiting of semiconductor chips and IP designs. Fortunately, with industry players now gaining focus on incorporating the trademark of innovation on their semiconductor products, semiconductor IP has developed a shell against patent trolls.
