Consumer Electronics Drives EDA

DUBLIN, Ireland—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 23, 2007— Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of "Electronic Design Automation (EDA) Europe 2007" to their offering.

With a market sized at EUR 780 million, up nearly 11% from the EUR 700 million in 2005 (itself up 7% from 2004), the Electronic Design Automation market in Europe represents around one fifth of the worldwide EDA market.

This market is dominated by the so called Big Three: Cadence Design Systems, Mentor Graphics Inc and Synopsys, Inc. However, unlike its 3rd position in the worldwide ranking, Mentor Graphics is ranked 2nd in Europe in 2006, where it generates 28% of its worldwide business.

Despite most worldwide vendors' headquarters are based in the US, Europe is base for two global vendors in the Semiconductor IP arena, namely ARM the global leader and Imagination Technologies.

Who are the customers for EDA vendors in Europe? In 2006 Europe accounted for 16% of global semiconductor revenue or EUR 31 billion. Europe is home to the following four major semiconductor companies: STMicroelectronics in Geneva, Switzerland, Qimonda and Infineon in Munich, Germany, and NXP in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. NXP was formerly a division of Philips but was spun out in 2006. Qimonda, a supplier of DRAM products, was carved out of Infineon Technologies in 2006 and went public in August 2006. All four are ranked by revenue among the top 15 semiconductor companies in the world. In addition there are around 150 fabless semiconductor companies in Europe as well as hundreds of system design houses.

The end users of EDA products are increasingly involved with consumer electronics. The requirements of these CE products for mobility, low cost and high volume have had a significant impact on the direction of the EDA industry. The trends in the semiconductor industry and corresponding trends in the EDA industry are discussed.

Agilent EEsof, Ansoft, ARM, Cadence Design System, Imagination Technologies, Magma Design Automation, Mentor Graphics, Rambus, Synopsys, Synplicity, The Mathworks, and Zuken are studied in this report with their 2006 numbers in Europe for most of them. Moreover, around 40 European based EDA vendors are identified by name and country. Top studied vendors are ranked considering both their total revenue, as well as their software only revenue.

With over 50 tables and graphs, in a 56 pages document, this report provides a quantitative and qualitative picture of the market: market size, trends and vendors positions in each of the EDA product and services categories as well as in main European regions/countries: UK, Germany, France, Scandinavia and Italy.
