Market Drivers

1.  Rapid growth of the consumer electronics industry in both developed and emerging economies is expected to drive growth of the global PCB design software market during the forecast period

Consumer electronics include smartphones, tablets, laptops, television, refrigerators, washing machine, etc. Over the years, the consumer electronics industry has witnessed significant growth across both developed and emerging economies. Moreover, according to the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), the Indian appliance and consumer electronics (ACE) market is expected to be valued at US$ 21.18 billion by 2025, increasing from US$ 10.93 billion in 2019. This, in turn, has increased the adoption of advanced PCB design software across the globe.

2.  Increasing need to reduce time and remove the challenges emerging during the product development is expected to propel the global PCB design software market during the forecast period

Engineers are required to consider various factors including error tolerance, input signals, and design input while designing printed circuit boards (PCBs). With PCB design software, an engineer can mimic circuit design and get valuable insights into real-time issues related to applying the circuit. Furthermore, PCB design software reduces complications of design, identifies and correct errors early, allows engineers to implement new ideas, and save time as well as cost. Thus, the demand for such software solutions has increased.

Market Opportunity

1.  Icreasing demand for smartphones and tablets can present lucrative growth opportunities

Advanced portable mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets have witnessed massive demand in the recent past. With rising penetration of the internet at competitive prices, the adoption of smartphones and tablets has increased significantly. According to the Pew Research Center, in 2019, around 81% of people in the U.S. had smartphones, increasing from 68% in 2015. According to the same source, tablet users in the U.S. increased from 34% in 2013 to 52% in 2019. This, in turn, has increased the demand for PCB design software solutions across the consumer electronics industry.

2.  Growing demand for electric cars can provide major business opportunities

As the demand for electric cars continues to grow against fossil-fueled cars, the adoption of advanced printed circuit boards also increases. PCBs are used in the automotive industry are required to be highly reliable with long-life service. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in 2019, electric car sales reached 2.1 million globally, registering a growth rate of 2.6%. According to the Edison Electric Institute (EEI), as of March 2019, there were around 1.18 million electric vehicles on U.S. roads, with EV sales increasing by 81% in 2018 as compared to 2017.
