According to, The Semiconductor IP Market Is Encouraged to Reach USD 11 billion by 2032, Revenue to Index 6.7% CAGR Over the Next 10 Years (between 2023 and 2032).

New York, March 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global semiconductor IP market was valued at around USD 6 million in 2022 and is estimated to be worth approximately USD 11 billion in 2032, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% between 2023 and 2032. Semiconductor intellectual properties are essential elements within electronic systems like logic cells and chip layouts which can easily be reused by their original creators. Many semiconductor intellectual properties are created with the intention of licensing them out to multiple organizations so they can serve as building blocks in various chip designs for semiconductors and electronics products.

Today's integrated circuit (IC), designs incorporate more system functionality into single chips (System on Chip). Pre-designed IP blocks and cores are increasingly important in these SoC designs. Because most SoC designs use a standard microprocessor, a lot of system functionality is standardized and can be reused across different designs.

Market Drivers

Semiconductor IP blocks are compatible with the system–on–chip (SoCs), and application-specific integrated Circuits (ASICs). Monolithic 3D IC technology is an example. Due to scale-up and smaller die sizes, it is expected to lower wafer cost. Multiple layers can be combined as well as heterogeneous integrated.

Due to the increased demand for smart and power-efficient devices, the demand for SoCs has also been increasing. This will further drive semiconductor IP market growth. Consumer electronics can include televisions and cameras, camcorders and notebooks as well as audio/video equipment, smartphones, tablets, and computers. It also includes gaming consoles with accessories, home appliances, and wearable electronics. In developing countries such as India and China, the demand for consumer electronics is rising. This is due to increasing disposable incomes, the rising middle class, as well as progressive government reforms.

Chips such As System on Chip (SoCs), are used in consumer electronics such as TVs, MP3 players, and mobile phones. Combining SoCs can be done with semiconductor IP blocks. Instead of designing each circuit individually, companies can use semiconductor IP blocks to increase their revenue and save time. This will open up many opportunities for the key players in global semiconductor IP markets.

The design and development of semiconductor IPs are constantly being streamlined. There are many ways to bypass the limitations of traditional semiconductor technologies, including graphene transistors and self-organizing molecular devices, carbon nanotubes, and quantum computing. This allows for a rise in the demand for semiconductor IP.

Market Restraints

This market is dynamic and the functionality of chips can change quickly. These fluctuations could limit the market's growth. This problem can be avoided if the semiconductor IP market focuses more on the regular upgrading of the equipment.

When integrating acquired semiconductor IP blocks of third-party vendors onto SoCs, design engineers face a difficult task. The risk of IP integration increases with increasing complexity in IP design. This increases the cost of semiconductor IP as well as the time it takes to produce.

Market Opportunities

The automotive industry as well as telecommunications and data center companies rely on complex and sophisticated electronic systems. These companies are in increasing demand for semiconductor IP. Therefore, the development of chip manufacturing is necessary. Small gadgets with high performance and functional benefits, which are also used in the automotive industry, are becoming more popular. This will be a good opportunity for participants in the semiconductor IP market.
