EDA Consortium reports 15% industry revenue growth for 2006.

SAN JOSE -- The EDA Consortium's Market Statistics Service (MSS) reported that the EDA industry revenue for Q4 of 2006 was $1,493 million, a 19% increase over Q4 2005. For the full year 2006, revenue totaled a record $5,274 million, which was 15%, more than the $4,575 million recorded in 2005. This increase reflects both the continuing growth of the industry as a whole and the growth of the MSS program, which enjoyed a net increase in the number of participating companies compared to the previous year.

"Steady growth in consumer electronics and migration to deeper sub-micron processes are fueling the demand for solutions across all segments and regions of the EDA industry," said Aart de Geus, chairman of the EDA Consortium and chairman and CEO of Synopsys Inc. "This is reflected in the revenue gains for 2006."

Total EDA and SIP (semiconductor intellectual property) product and maintenance revenue (excluding services) increased 20% over Q4 2005 and posted a record high quarter of $1,416 million revenue in Q4 2006.

Companies tracked in the MSS employed 25,390 professionals in Q4 2006, 10% more than Q4 2005.

"Worldwide revenue is double digit, fueled by nearly all regions. North American EDA revenue is especially strong, fueled both by longstanding EDA categories, and particularly by SIP," said Robert Gardner, executive director, EDA Consortium. "We are optimistic that these growth trends will continue."
