By August, 2005, there are more than 500 IC design houses in China. The employment also increased from 3000 in 2000 to 20,000 by the end of 2004. The sales revenue for IC design reached 5.76 billion RMB in 2003, accounting for 12.6% of the total product value of IC industry, and the sales revenue increased to 11 billion RMB in 2004, accounting for 20% of the total product value of IC industry. RIC (Research in China) estimated that by 2008, the sales revenues for IC design in China will exceed 80 billion RMB.

China semi-conductor market has enjoyed a continuous 5-year rapid growth; its growth rate has exceeded the U.S. and Japan. In the future 3 years, the amount of IC design houses will exceed 800 in China. Great changes will be seen in the design capabilities, product categories, and business operating capabilities in China's IC design sector.

In terms of entire business layout, China IC design sector has formed a relatively concentrated industry layout centering on Beijing-Tianjin Delta, Yangtze River Delta, Zhujiang River Delta and Western Area Delta. IC design sector in these areas is relatively mature and normalized in relations with the industry chain, and with a total sales revenues accounting for 80% of the whole IC design sector in China. A group of IC design houses with a turnover over 1 billion RMB have occurred. As a whole, the scale of IC design sector in China has fundamentally come into shape.

The Top ten IC design houses in China in 2004

On the aspect of IC design technology, China has achieved considerable progress. At present, the line width for the majority of mass production has reached 0.18μm, 0.25μm and 0.35μm, some even reached 0.13μm.

Nevertheless, IC design sector in China still faces serious challenges. For deficiencies in many aspects, China still relies on import. In 2004, imported IC products in China Mainland accounted for over 80% of the total.

China's deficiencies in IC design are manifested in the following:

Manufacturing techniques in general are lagging behind the U.S., South Korea, Japan and China Taiwan;                                   

SOC design and IP core design capability is far from satisfying the market demand, most products are low-end levels with low profit rate;                                           

The entire market scale of China's IC design sector is relatively small compared to developed regions in the world;

China's IC design sector is in short of qualified personnel, including technical staff, management and marketing personnel;

There are few high-end products, especially the products for high-level system manufacturers;

Most IC design houses are medium- small sized.
However, the Chinese government has always been supporting strongly the IC design industry and released a series of preferential measures to encourage the development of IC design houses, including Document No.18, Document No. 51, tax refund, discount government loan, and setting up specialized industrial base and so on. Overseas venture investment firms and far-sighted investors are also actively participating in China’s IC design development.
