The EDA Consortium’s Market Statistics Service (MSS) recently released data about the electronic design automation (EDA) industry. Revenue for Q4 of 2006 was $1,493 million, which is a 19% increase over Q4 2005. For the full year 2006, revenue totaled a record $5,274 million, which was 15% more than the $4,575 million recorded in 2005. The increase reflects both the continuing growth of the industry as a whole and the growth of the MSS program, which enjoyed a net increase in the number of participating companies compared to the previous year.
