growth-returns-to-semiconductor-and-eda-tools-m&a-markets-–-for-now

2019 was a great time for merger and acquisition business in the semiconductor and electronic design automation tools industries. But what will the future hold?

There was an uptick in M&A activity for the semiconductor space in the first eight months of 2019. This was a welcome change after the market slowing in 2017 and 2018. The combined value of 20-plus M&A agreement announcements reached over $28 billion for the purchase of chip companies, business units, product lines, intellectual property (IP), and wafer fabs between January and the end of August – according to the Fall 2019 IC Insight’s McClean Report. This amount does not include transactions between semiconductor capital equipment suppliers, material producers, chip packaging and testing companies, and electronic design automation (EDA) software firms.

The activity in the first eight months of 2019 have surpassed the $25.9 billion total for all of 2018.
