The 2019 global semiconductor market was valued at $385.4 billion after experiencing a 15% decline due to a 32% drop in the memory IC market, which is expected to recover in 2021. The IC/ASIC portion of the semiconductor market is valued at about $186.6 billion. The IC/ASIC semiconductor market is expected to reach a value of $233.4 billion by 2024, growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.6% during this forecast period. In contrast, the FPGA portion of the semiconductor market is valued at about $5 billion, and is expected to reach a value of $7.5 billion by 2030, growing at a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.4% during this forecast period. While COVID-19 has had a negative impact in 2020 on a number of market segments (e.g., consumer and automotive), other market segments (e.g., data center computing, networking, storage, and communication) are experiencing positive growth required to support today’s growing work-from-home (WFH) environment.

Ensuring functional correctness is still one of the biggest challenges for both the ASIC/IC and FPGA markets. To quantify this, every two years, Mentor, A Siemens Business commissions Wilson Research Group to conduct a broad, vendor-independent study of design verification practices around the world. In this presentation, Harry Foster highlights the key findings from the 2020 Wilson Research Group Functional Verification Study, and provides his interpretation and analysis behind today’s emerging trends. The findings from this study provide invaluable insight into the state of today’s IC/ASIC and FPGA markets in terms of both design and verification trends.
