MSS Report self description
The EDA Consortium Market Statistics Service reports EDA industry revenue data quarterly and is available by annual subscription. 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 and 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.

Whither EDA in 2011?
January 6th, 2011 by Graham Bell
Dan Nenni, blogger, hosted the EDA Consortium CEO Annual CEO Forecast and Industry Vision Panel last night at the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose. Aart de Geus from Synopsys and Charlie Huang (filling in for Lip-Bu Tan) from Cadence and Ravi Subramanian from Berkeley talked about various trends, drivers and impacts. It was Wally Rhines from Mentor that named two possible growth numbers for 2011. One was based on a calculation what the financial analysts say for the coming year and came in at 8%.
The second figure was based on a favorite formula that says the previous year's R&D spend is strongly correlated to the following year's EDA growth. This formula delivered an exuberant 14%.
I like these numbers and I think we can expect hiring to pick up. As one exec over at a leading company mentioned to me, even marketing managers are finding jobs.
What do you think? Do you see 8% or 14%, and will hiring pick-up?

SIA Reports November 2010 Chip Sales
On January 3, 2011 The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) reported that worldwide semiconductor sales in November (the last month for which data are available) were $26.0 billion, a decrease of 0.9% from the prior month when sales were $26.2 billion. Sales increased by 14.4% from November 2009 when sales were $22.7 billion. Year-to date sales through November were $271.8 billion, up 34.0% from the like period of 2009 when sales were $202.8 billion. All monthly sales numbers represent a three-month moving average.
"Despite continuing macroeconomic uncertainty, the worldwide semiconductor industry is slated to close the year at record sales levels with year-over-year growth rates not experienced in nearly a decade," said SIA President Brian Toohey. "The application of advanced technologies continues to further the proliferation of semiconductor content into a wider range of end products including media tablets, smart phones, e-Readers, and automobiles, resulting in impressive semiconductor sales in 2010," Toohey noted. "We expect continued moderation in sales growth, in line with our November* forecast," Toohey concluded.
*The following was the SIA November 4, 2010 forecast:
The Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) released its annual forecast of global semiconductor sales for 2010 through 2012, projecting record sales of $300.5 billion in 2010, an increase of 32.8%. The forecast calls for sales to grow by 6.0% in 2011, to $318.7 billion, followed by an increase of 3.4% to $329.7 billion in 2012. The projected compound annual growth rate is estimated to be 13.4% for the period 2009 through 2012.
