The 3rd Party Semiconductor Intellectual Property (SIP) and the System-on-a-Chip (SoC) markets are undergoing good revenue growth as the world continues to move past the COVID-19 pandemic. Headwinds with weakness in global economies and inflation pose some overall concern, but Semico is assuming any economic downturn will not be long or severe. Augmenting these trends is the emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) functionality that is being incorporated in many SoCs and applications. In addition, a new CPU SIP architecture—the RISC-V ISA—has entered the market and is having a profound impact on how SoC designers and silicon architects are implementing their current and future designs.

A new Semico Research report, RISC-V CPU Market Analysis for SIP, SoCs, AI and Design Starts (CC330-23) forecasts that total RISC-V CPU SIP royalties will reach $230M by 2028. Additional key findings include:

  • Total SIP Licensing revenues were $3.4B in 2022.
  • Total 3rd Party SIP revenues are forecast to reach $13.2B by 2028.
  • Total RISC-V CPU SIP royalties are forecast to have a CAGR of 26.7% through 2028.
  • Total Advanced RISC-V AI SoC market revenues are projected to reach $24.2B by 2028, a CAGR of 54.2%.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
