Electronic System Design Industry Posts $4 Billion in Revenue in Q2, 2023, Reports Electronic System Design Alliance

MILPITAS, Calif. —  Electronic System Design (ESD) industry revenue increased 5.3% to $3,962.7 million in the second quarter of 2023 from $3,763.6 million in the second quarter of 2022, the ESD Alliance, a SEMI Technology Community, announced today in its latest Electronic Design Market Data (EDMD) report. The four-quarter moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four, rose 9.5%.

Logo“Growth in total electronic design automation (EDA) revenue in Q2 23 was limited by weak semiconductor IP revenue,” said Walden C. Rhines, Executive Sponsor of the SEMI Electronic Design Market Data report. “However, total license and maintenance revenue, which includes all design tools, was strong at 16.1% overall with double-digit growth in all regions except Japan.”

The companies tracked in the EDMD report employed 59,160 people globally in Q2 2023, an 11.8% jump over the Q2 2022 headcount of 52,918 and up 2.5% compared to Q1 2023.

The quarterly EDMD report contains detailed revenue information with the following category and geographic breakdowns.
