"The EDA industry realized record revenues for the fourth quarter 2014 and the calendar year. This was the 16th consecutive quarter showing positive growth in the EDA industry," said Walden C. Rhines, board sponsor for the EDAC MSS and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. "Revenues increased in all of the product categories, with double digit increases in PCB & MCM. Geographically, the Asia-Pacific region continued to report double digit growth, with significant growth in the Americas."
Companies that were tracked employed 29,880 professionals in Q4 2013, an increase of 1 percent compared to the 29,578 people employed in Q4 2012, but down 0.3 percent compared to Q3 2013.
The complete MSS report, containing detailed revenue information broken out by both categories and geographic regions, is available via subscription from the EDA Consortium.

About the MSS Report
The EDA Consortium Market Statistics Service reports EDA industry revenue data quarterly and is available to EDAC members. Both public and private companies contribute data to the report. Each quarterly report is published approximately three months after quarter close. MSS report data is segmented as follows: revenue type (product licenses and maintenance, services, and SIP), application (CAE, PCB/MCM Layout, and IC Physical Design & Verification), and region (the Americas, Europe Middle East and Africa, Japan, and Asia Pacific), with many subcategories of detail provided. The report also tracks total employment of the reporting companies.
