Rising Demand for Advanced Radar Systems is Propelling the Growth of PCB Design Software Market:
The increasing adoption of advanced radar systems in automotive is accelerating the growth of the PCB Design Software Market. Advanced radar systems are being tested on
multiple fronts, with additional operational requirements in automotive. Radar
PCBs are in high demand due to the ongoing development of electric
vehicles, self-driving cars and the aerospace sector. Growing emphasis on
autonomous and EVs is boosting the demand for PCB design software due to their
increased use in the advanced driver-assistance system. In April 2022, NXP
Semiconductors launched the Premium Radar SDK, a PCB-designed software kit
to assist developers in improving the performance of their automotive radar
systems. According to a 2021 BloombergNEF study, electric vehicles account for
3% of global car sales in 2021. However, by 2025, EVs account for 10% of global
passenger vehicle sales, rising to 28% by 2030. Increasing adoption of EVs will
boost the demand for advanced radar
systems to ensure driver safety. These factors will help in expanding the
PCB Design Software market size.
Growing Demand for Visualization Tools
for Designing Electronic devices is Propelling the Growth of PCB Design
The increasing adoption of visualization
tools for designing electronic devices is accelerating the growth of the PCB Design
Software Market. They are widely used to design circuit boards in the
electronics & telecommunications industries to save time and eliminate
challenges encountered during product development. PCB diagram software reduces
overall production costs due to its high efficiency and ability to reduce
design flaws. Additionally, they provide increased storage capacity,
enhanced functionality and faster processing speed, resulting in a wide
range of applications in a variety of sectors. Furthermore, the small size of
PCB boards makes it easier to design light & compact consumer devices,
resulting in increased demand for PCBs. According to a 2020 report published by
Invest India, the global electronic devices market was expected to reach $3.1
trillion in 2021 and will continue to grow at the same rate encouraging the
