EDA Consortium MSS Newsletter for Q4 2012


EDAC MSS Newsletter


Each quarter, the EDA Consortium publishes the Market Statistics Service (MSS) report containing detailed revenue data for the EDA industry. The report compiles data submitted confidentially by both public and private EDA companies into tables and charts listing the data by both EDA category and geographic region. This newsletter highlights the results for the fourth quarter of 2012. Additional details are available in the press release, or by joining EDAC and receiving the EDA Consortium MSS report.

Overall, fourth quarter 2012 EDA revenues increased 4.6% compared to the same period in 2011. Total revenue for Q4 was $1779.1 million. Figures 1 and 2, below, summarize the revenue growth for Q4 2012 compared to Q4 2011, detailed by category (figure 1) and geographic region (figure 2). The MSS report contains many additional sub-categories, allowing subscribers to perform a more detailed analysis of revenues affecting their business. A complete list of categories for 2012 is available here.

Figure 3 (below) shows the EDA revenue percentages by major category. As the chart shows, CAE remains the largest category, followed by Semiconductor IP and IC Design and Verification tools. Geographically, the Americas is the largest consumer of EDA tools, with the remainder divided amongst Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Japan, and Asia Pacific (APAC), as shown in Figure 4. The quarterly MSS report includes additional details for the Asia Pacific region.

Data is reported confidentially to an independent accounting firm, which allows both public and private companies to report revenue data by detailed category. Individual company data is not reported, and steps are taken to further protect individual data for categories with a small number of reporting companies. Contributing data is free, and contributors will receive the quarterly MSS executive summary report. The full report is available via subscription, and contains substantially more detailed information for EDA revenues by category and region, providing the information subscribers need to analyze trends in EDA.
