Product Strength: A Catalyst

Synopsys’ penetration into new and growing AI chip companies is a major growth driver. Further, with the growing proliferation of 5G networks and the need for enhanced security measures, demand for the company’s solutions is shooting up.

Moreover, the emerging clout of AI, 5G and ADAS chipset making is fueling demand for computational software tools. This favors Synopsys’ prospects. Given the company’s capability to cater to the growing complex design requirements of customers, we believe that it is well poised to capitalize on this opportunity.

Robust growth in software-based verification at both traditional semiconductor and emerging system companies focused on in-house designs is an upside.

Notably, per Allied Market Research, the artificial intelligence chip market is projected to reach $91.19 billion by 2025, witnessing a CAGR of 45.2% from 2019.

Moreover, per Grand View Research, the global 5G chipset market size is expected to see a CAGR of 63.4% from 2020 to 2027.

Importantly, the coronavirus crisis has compelled governments globally to impose lockdowns to contain the spread. Nevertheless, courtesy of the ongoing adoption of digital transformation, and the evolving IT and networking infrastructure, majority of the companies are asking employees to work from home.

In the wake of the present scenario, Synopsys, with its promising fundamentals, is poised to grow.
