ESD industry revenue increased by 14.4% year-on-year to $3.468 billion in Q4 2021, according to the ESD Alliance.

Electronic system design (ESD) industry revenue increased by 14.4% from $3.03 billion in the fourth quarter of 2020 (Q4 2020) to $3.468 billion in Q4 2021, according to the ESD Alliance’s Electronic Design Market Data (EDMD) report. The four-quarter moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four, rose by 15.8%. The ESD Alliance is a SEMI Technology Community.

The companies tracked in the EDMD report employed 51,236 people globally in Q4 2021, a 5.7% increase over the Q4 2020 headcount of 48,478 and up 0.1% compared to Q3 2021.

“The industry continued to report double-digit year-over-year revenue growth for Q4 2021 and ended 2021 with $13.2 billion total market revenue,” said Walden C. Rhines, Executive Sponsor of the SEMI Electronic Design Market Data report. “Product categories Computer-Aided Engineering, Printed Circuit Board and Multi-Chip Module,  Semiconductor Intellectual Property, and Services recorded double-digit growth for the quarter. Geographically, the Americas; Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and Asia Pacific (APAC) all reported revenue growth.”
