COVID-19 has had a severe impact on the global economy as well as all industries. To stop the plague from spreading, governments in several countries have established borders. The initial phase of the epidemic's global shutdown in many countries has had a significant influence on people's lives and quality of life. As a result, the global supply chain has been shattered. The global economy has shrunk as commodity demand has decreased considerably. Due to the outbreak, which has caused a lack of immature materials, production in all industries has been slowed. Productivity declines are caused by variables such as depreciation and supply chain disruption.

COVID-19 has led semiconductor companies to come together quickly and make both short-term and long-term changes to their business models in terms of the marketing and distribution capabilities offered for their products. Supply chain are disrupted as the virus spreads around the world inevitably brings solitary confinement, which affects product sales. The COVID-19 epidemic also accelerated the adoption of digital services in all industries. Consumer behaviour has changed considerably, and demand for semiconductor devices has migrated to ASICS, memory, and sensors.

The semiconductor IP market has declined slightly by 2020 considering the impact of automotive, industrial sales and more. Demand for automotive around the world has declined sharply by 2020 as governments around the world respond to the epidemic with closure and travel rates plummeting. Disruptions in supply chain, traffic restrictions, inconsistent or limited production capacity of players, and reduced demand from end users due to the economic downturn are major factors affecting the growth of the automotive industry.  However, with the ease of closure in countries such as China, India, the US and Germany, as well as vaccines widely distributed since December 2020, the manufacturing industry is expected to slow down in the coming months, and the semiconductor IP market is expected to recover by mid-2022.

By IP, the Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) Market are subdivided into Processor IP, Memory IP, Interface IP and Other Ips. Among this processor IP is forecasted to witness the highest market share.  The processor IP is expected to capture a large portion of the semiconductor IP market during forecasting. 5G technology enables significant increase in speed, bandwidth, and data output for automotive and mobile applications by introducing network integration and increased operational flexibility with the mmWave spectrum. Such developments have increased the complexity of infrastructure, basebands, and application processor technologies. To solve this problem, new processing IPs are needed. All of these factors are expected to further the need for IP processors during forecasting.

By Industry, the Semiconductor Intellectual Property (IP) Market are subdivided into Telecommunications & Data Center, Consumer Electronics, Automotive, Industrial, Commercial and Others. Among this consumer electronics is expected to have the largest market share in the SIP.

The consumer electronics buyer holds the largest share of the semiconductor IP market in 2020, and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The growth of the semiconductor IP market for industry consumer electronics may be due to the growing acceptance of modern chip designs (SOCs) on these devices. Also, the emerging markets for machine learning, artificial intelligence, and augmented reality and the increasing penetration of 5G phones are expected to create promising opportunities for players working in the semiconductor IP market for industry consumer electronics..

15 Conclusion

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Data Bank Validation

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploader on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
