The electronic design automation software market was valued at US$8.974 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.86% to reach US$16.26 billion by 2028.

The electronic design automation (EDA) software market is expected to grow considerably during the forecast period. It refers to the software for defining, designing, implementing, verifying, and manufacturing semiconductor devices and electronics. This software finds multiple use cases, such as designing integrated circuits and printed circuit boards. The electronic design automation software market is heavily connected with the semiconductor business. The electronic design automation software market can be classified in the following ways: by product, deployment, application, end-user, and geographic region. The major drivers for the growth of this market include increased demand from several booming industries such as aerospace and electronics and technological advancements.

Market Drivers:

  • Advancements in technology.
The rapid advancements in modern technologies greatly impact the electronic design automation software market size due to continuous research and development efforts by private manufacturers and public institutions. The increased adoption of FinFET architectural technology for processor designing has significantly impacted the electronic design automation software market. Other technological innovations, such as IoT, artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, etc., are also helping push the demand for electronic design automation software by opening up alternative avenues for their usage in technology and electronics-based industries.
  • Demand in the electronics industry.
There is a noticeable growth in the electronics industry due to research and development efforts. For instance, the electronics industry in India is expected to grow by over 600% by 2025, according to a report published by National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency in 2021. Many daily-use electronic products like smart televisions and smartphones are growing in demand globally, and their manufacturing involves using semiconductors to control and manage the flow of electric current. Therefore, as the demand for consumer electronics grows, the need for semiconductors will grow proportionately, increasing the electronic design automation software market size too.

Rising trend of miniaturization

There has been an increasing trend of miniaturization in electronic devices. This expands the scope for applications of electronic design automation in multiple industries, such as consumer electronics, healthcare, automotive, etc. Miniaturized semiconductor components are utilized in healthcare in several devices, such as blood pressure machines, pacemakers, glucose monitors, and various surgical devices. Similarly, the trend of smartphones and wearable electronics such as smartwatches and fitness trackers has also helped increase the electronic design automation software industry value by providing more scope for the usage of this software to continually improve on miniaturization to allow for the inclusion of other features in products.


Technological changes and semiconductor shortages.

A significant challenge this industry faces is the constant technological changes characterizing the semiconductor industry. Changes in semiconductor technologies affect the overall design architectures, which can lead to integration challenges. Thus, there is a need to develop electronic design automation software solutions that can evolve with the changes in the market. Additionally, shortages of semiconductor chips in the global market can also restrain the growth of this industry, as the demand for electronic design automation is closely derived from the need for semiconductor chips.

Technical complexities.

Another additional barrier to the industry's growth is the increasing complexity of microcontrollers and microprocessors and the costs associated with the non-recurring engineering of large-scale integration designs. These complexities are expected to restrict the development of the electronic design automation software market.

Solutions Offered:

  • Cadence Design Systems offers its Cadence Verification service, which includes the complete flow of verification designed to deliver a higher throughput to customers in terms of verification. The verification software is designed to provide maximized productivity and increased verification throughput, allowing for the detection and diagnostics of bugs.
  • Zuken’s CR-8000 suite of advanced PCB design software covers all stages of the PCB engineering lifecycle, from architectural planning to physical implementation and manufacturing. It is complemented by data management capabilities too. The core products in this range span from design force applications, such as those used for advanced packaging and simulation & analysis, to design gateways and data management applications.

The geographic segmentation of the EDA software market.

The electronic design automation software market can be segmented into the following geographic regions: North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, and Asia-Pacific. The growth of this market is expected to be driven by matured markets in developed regions.

North American region forecast.

The North American region is expected to constitute a significant share of the electronic design automation software industry, and similar trends are expected to be followed in the forecast period. This market share is owed to the increased adoption of electronic design automation tools such as processors, design circuit boards, etc., by major industries such as automotive and electronics in this region.

A major driver of market growth for electronic design automation software in this region is the presence of large semiconductor and circuit manufacturers, such as Cadence, Synopsys, Xilinx, etc., in the United States. These global leaders are responsible for most research and development that results in technological advancements in the field, thus, boosting the demand for electronic design automation software.

Forecast for the Rest of the World.

It is anticipated that Asia-Pacific and European markets will experience moderate growth too. The electronic device automation software market is expected to grow steadily in the Asia-Pacific region due to large semiconductor manufacturers such as Samsung and a growing electronics industry in countries such as China, India, South Korea, etc.

Market Developments:

  • In May 2023, Cadence Design Systems announced the acquisition of Britain-based Pulsic, an analog electronic design automation tool manufacturer. The company adds to its portfolio the industry experience of Pulsic in handling complex analog layouts and memory chip designing.
  • In May 2023, Synopsys, a global leader in electronic design automation and semiconductor IP, announced the acquisition of Silicon Frontline Technology into its Synopsys EDA group. The acquisition is expected to provide solutions to the company’s performance and reliability troubles in the design process for integrated circuits, as well as strengthen its electrical layout verification unit. The acquirer is believed to gain from the expert technologies of Silicon Frontline to boost its system analysis solutions.
  • In November 2022, Siemens Digital Industries Software announced the acquisition of Avery Design Systems, Inc. The acquisition will strengthen Siemens’s Xcelerator portfolio of electronic design automation integrated circuit verification offerings. It is believed to help the company retain its leading market share in the verification segment with the addition of Avery Design’s verification protocol and compliance test offerings, as well as research and development efforts.
