SAN JOSE, USA: The EDA Consortium (EDAC) Market Statistics Service (MSS) today announced that the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry revenue for Q2 2009 is $1,125.5 million, a 5.6 percent sequential decline from Q1.
On a Q2/Q2 basis, EDA industry revenue declined 15.8 percent to $1,125.5 million, compared to $1,335.9 million in Q2 2008. The four-quarter moving average declined 13.9 percent.
“This recession started with the most precipitous drop in electronics industry history. Nevertheless, the normal pattern of preserving most R&D spending has been maintained by most electronics companies,” said Wally Rhines, EDAC chair and chairman and CEO of Mentor Graphics. “As the electronics industry recovers, and its R&D spending increases to come in line with its growing revenue, the EDA industry would be expected to recover as well.”
Companies that were tracked employed 26,298 professionals in Q2 2009, down 6.1 percent from the 28,004 employed in Q2 2008, and down 1.0 percent from the 26,561 employed in Q1 2009.
