Global printed circuit board (PCB) design software market.

Vancouver, October 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Current Market Scenario:

The global printed circuit board (PCB) design software market. The size reached $1.15 billion in 2020 and is expected to register a significantly stable revenue CAGR during the forecast period, according to the latest analysis from Emergen Research. The rise in demand for PCB design software in the consumer electronics industry is a key factor that is expected to drive market revenue growth over the forecast period.


The increasing need to save time and production costs of various electronic components and devices and equipment etc. is expected to drive the demand for PCB design software over the forecast period. PCB design software is rapidly being used for printed circuit board design in the electronics and telecommunications industries. This is mainly because it has high efficiency and the ability to minimize design errors, thus reducing the entire production cost.


The availability of open-source PCB design software is a primary factor expected to limit market growth. The increasing use of pirated software poses a threat to market growth. As a result, strict market implementations are made to limit the use of such software. While PCB design software offers benefits including ease of implementation and time savings, security concerns arise when using cloud-based deployment approaches.

Growth projections:

The global PCB design software market revenue is expected to register a CAGR of 6.9% and increase from USD 1.15 billion in 2020 to USD 1.94 billion in 2028. The increasing need to reduce PCB manufacturing costs is a major factor driving the market’s revenue growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted every sector worldwide. The PCB design software market was also hit by disruptions in the supply chain of computer systems hardware. Manpower constraints also had a significant impact on market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic is having a significant impact on the work culture of major segments, including the education sector, transportation and consumer electronics industries.

Current trends and innovations:

On-premise implementation of PCB design software is now preferred in most industries and sectors over cloud implementation. Deployment in the cloud is more productive and cost-effective. The need to access data from remote locations is driving the demand for cloud-based PCB design software, used by end users.

Geographical outlook:

The European market is expected to register high sales growth over the forecast period. The presence of major players such as Siemens AG, Altium Limited and Novarm Limited (DipTrace) in countries in the region is expected to contribute to the sales growth of the European market.
