1Q/2016 EDA industry revenue increased

Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue increased 4.5 percent for Q1/2016 to USD 1962 million, compared to USD 1877 million in Q1/2015., reports the Electronic System Design (ESD) Alliance (formerly EDAC) .
The four-quarters moving average, which compares the most recent four quarters to the prior four quarters, increased by 4.3 percent. “Double digit revenue increases in Japan, combined with increases in all other geographic regions, led to an overall EDA industry revenue increase in Q1," said Walden C. Rhines, board sponsor for the ESD Alliance MSS and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. “Revenue categories Semiconductor IP, IC Physical Design & Verification, PCB & MCM, and Services all reported increases this quarter.”

Companies that were tracked employed a record 34'519 professionals in Q1/2016, an increase of 7.4 percent compared to the 32,127 people employed in Q1/2015, and up 1 percent compared to Q4/2015.
