ARM market share slipping

ARM and Imagination, the former UK IP vendors now owned by Japan and China, are both losing market share, reports IPnest.

While half the top ten vendors grew by double digit figures in an IP market that grew 11.7% last year, ARM grew by 7.8% and Imagination declined by nearly 7%.

ARM’s license revenue declined by 6.8% y-o-y although royalty revenue grew  17.8%.

ARM’s market share declined from 47.8% in 2016 to 46.2% in 2017,

It has been suggested that RISC-V is impacting  ARM though it could just be a change in accountancy practices after the Softbank takeover.
