It is predicted that by 2025, the number of risc-v chips will increase to 62.4 billion, with a compound growth rate of 146% from 2018 to 2025. Compared with other instruction sets, risc-v can be freely used for any purpose, allowing anyone to design, manufacture and sell risc-v chips and software.
In order to quantify the total available market (TAM) of CPU IP core and estimate the service available market (SAM) of risc-v IP core, semico research, a Market Research Institute, recently launched a study.
The research results show that the number of risc-v chips is expected to increase to 62.4 billion by 2025, with a compound growth rate of 146% from 2018 to 2025. These chips will be mainly used in the industrial market, PC, consumer electronics and communication market.
Semico research and risc-v Foundation jointly identified 34 market segments, studied Tam and Sam of each market, and finally predicted 2025 data. The report focuses on four semiconductor devices with high-value opportunities to use risc-v cores:
High performance multi-core SOC
Value multi-core SOC
Field programmable gate array
Semico research says interest in risc-v products in all major end applications is growing and important ongoing development is ongoing. In addition, risc-v equipment also has a wide range of high-performance. Risc-v's flexible open source strategy provides a competitive advantage, which will change the pattern of CPU IP market.
