Semiconductor memory IP is used in electronic devices to store data and due to its ability to store large amounts of data and provide quick access, this form of memory is crucial. Semiconductor memory IP contains designs for read-only memory (ROM), random-access memory (RAM), non-volatile memory (NVM), and other specialized memory types, enabling them to save time and resources on design and testing while offering a trustworthy memory solution. Semiconductor memory IP is a crucial part of a wide range of electrical devices from basic embedded systems too complicated high-performance computing systems. The market is experiencing a demand for quicker and more effective memory solutions due to the increasing complexity of semiconductors and the rise in the number of intensive memory operations.

The rising demand for electronic devices will boost the semiconductor memory IP market growth.

The increasing use of electronic devices across numerous sectors such as automotive, consumer electronics, and data centers is driving the demand for semiconductor memory IP. Dynamic random-access memory (DRAM) uses semiconductor memory IP and the increased adoption of DRAM has raised the market for semiconductor memory IP. DRAM is used in video game devices, laptops, desktops, and in applications like HDD, DVD, digital cameras, and navigation systems. According to the Technology Association of America (TechAmerica), in 2020 the US electronics technology sector generated $2.4 trillion in revenue. Semiconductor memory IP technology is widely used in smartphones. As smartphone sales increase, parallelly demand for semiconductor memory IP raises. According to the Consumer Technology Association (CTA), the projected growth rate for US smartphone sales in 2021 was 2.2%, with an expected $80.2 billion market. The global electronics industry continues to depend heavily on the smartphone market and will contribute to the rising demand for semiconductor memory IP.

The automobile industry is expected to boost the panel-level packaging market growth

 In the automotive sector, semiconductor memory IP plays a major role as it is used in a variety of electronic systems, including infotainment, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), engine control units (ECUs), and other safety-critical systems. Modern automobiles have infotainment systems with features like touchscreens, music, and video playback, and the storage and access of media files, operating system software, and other data, it depends on semiconductor memory IP. It is anticipated that as the automotive industry expands, the demand for the semiconductor memory IP market increases parallelly. According to the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA), global automobile sales grew from 78.77 billion in 2020 to 82.68 billion in 2021. The China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) estimated that approximately 26.1 million cars were produced in China overall in 2021. Additionally, in 2022, steady growth is anticipated for the vehicle industry and the nation sold almost 2.6 million cars in September 2022. According to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), over 1.5 million new vehicles were registered in the UK in 2021 which was a 28.0% increase from the previous year. This demonstrates that demand for semiconductor memory IP will increase due to the increased development of new automobile technology.

During the forecast period, the Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share

The rising use of smart devices, laptops, smart wearables, and other electronic devices in Asia Pacific has opened the door for greater adoption of semiconductor memory IP and the region is anticipated to hold the largest market share and experience the fastest growth. According to the Ministry of Trade, industry, and Energy in 2020, to support semiconductor research and development, the South Korean government allocated KRW 1.9 trillion (roughly USD 1.6 billion). The Chinese government has taken steps to increase the semiconductor memory IP market by launching the "Made in China 2025" program to raise the domestic output of semiconductor ICs from less than 20% in 2015 to 70% in 2025. In 2020, the Japanese government announced plans to invest JPY 416 billion (approximately USD 3.8 billion) in semiconductor manufacturing over the next three years. These factors all add together to the market growth of semiconductor memory IP in the Asia Pacific region.
