COVD-19 impact on IP Core Market

COVID19 has led semiconductor companies to mobilize quickly and make both short-term and long-term adjustments in their business models as far as the sales and distribution capabilities of their product offerings are concerned. Global supply chains were disrupted as the virus spread across the globe bringing uncertainly over quarantine duration, affecting product sales. The pandemic also accelerated the adoption of digital services across all industries. Demand for semiconductor products has shifted to ASICS, memory, and sensors, while consumer behaviour has changed rapidly. The semiconductor IP market slightly declined in 2022 considering the impact on automotive, industrial commercial and other verticals. The global demand for automobiles dropped sharply in 2022 as governments worldwide responded to the pandemic with lockdowns and the travel rate decreased significantly. 

Disruptions in the supply chain, travel restrictions, inconsistent or limited production capabilities of players, and reduced demand from end users due to economic downturns are the major factors that have affected the growth of the automotive and industrial verticals. However, the stay-at-home policies and remote working have fueled the adoption of portable IT devices, including laptops and tablets. Moreover, health wearables, such as smart bands and smartwatches, witnessed a steep rise in demand as people became cautious about their physical health.

Thus, the market for consumer electronics witnessed a low impact of COVID19. Likewise, the impact of COVID19 was considerably low on the telecommunications & data center vertical owing to the rising implementation of 5G. However, with ease in lockdown in countries such as China, India, the US, and Germany, and vaccines being rolled out by numerous countries since December 2022, the manufacturing sector is expected to pick up the pace gradually in the coming months, and the semiconductor IP market is expected to recover by mid-2022
