Increase in 5G investments

5G, the next generation of communication technology, is gaining immense popularity across the world. There have been numerous investments in 5G globally in recent times, which is creating high demand for 5G network infrastructure. This is accelerating the development of electronic components and modules including 5G mmWave antenna modules, 5G base stations, and several 5G RF products. To capitalize on the growing investments in 5G, SoC vendors are introducing products that support 5G to enter a wide range of application segments. Thus, an increase in the investments in 5G will propel the adoption of SoCs during the forecast period.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “The SoCs market is witnessing an increase in the number of strategic partnerships and acquisitions among SoC manufacturers and other stakeholders including telecommunication network service providers, smartphone manufacturers, and semiconductor IP providers. Such partnerships will allow vendors to expand their product portfolio, improve their geographic presence, and expand their sales and distribution networks.”

Dependency of SoC vendors on IP core providers

Semiconductor manufacturers mostly rely on IP providers for the development of high-performance SoCs. However, integrating acquired semiconductor IP blocks from third-party vendors into SoCs is challenging. The complexity of IP integration and the IP design increases the number of IP blocks used, which doubles the total cost of acquiring IPs and increases the production time cycle. This will pose a high challenge to SoC designers when it comes to integrating an acquired IP core on a design IP base. However, companies are adopting exhaustive measures to tackle these challenges, which will positively impact market growth during the forecast period.
