MILPITAS, Calif. January 23, 2023 — Electronic System Design (ESD) industry revenue increased 8.9% from $3,458.2 million in Q3 2021 to $3,767.4 million in Q3 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 13.4%.   

Logo“The electronic design automation (EDA) industry posted overall gains in Q3 2022, with double-digit increases in all product categories except Semiconductor IP,” said Walden C. Rhines, Executive Sponsor of the SEMI Electronic Design Market Data report. “All geographic regions except Japan recorded growth in the quarter, with Asia Pacific reporting a double-digit increase.”

The companies tracked in the EDMD report employed 55,369 people globally in Q3 2022, an 8.2% increase over the Q3 2021 headcount of 51,182 and up 1.8% compared to Q2 2022.
