Market Overview


Global Electrical and Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) Market is expected to expand at 8.5% CAGR over the forecast period (2020-2026). ECAD is a simulation software used in design and creation of electronic and electric circuits. The schematics can be used as a reference for the actual layout as well as adherence to laws and ease of use. The use of the software for minimizing human errors and accelerating the planning stages of construction can drive market demand.


COVID-19 Analysis


The COVID-19 pandemic has become a golden opportunity for ECAD software developers as semiconductor design manufacturers and electrical circuit design makers are taking advantage of work from home. The access to hi-speed internet and cloud-based ECAD tools has been in line with guidelines issued by governments for movement restrictions and manages to have negligible impact on productivity. This is exemplified by U.S. based Royal Circuit Solutions utilizing the software for ramping up production on the ventilator designs of Medtronic. In addition, the COVID-19 guidelines for contaminating cleanrooms daily and provision of unenclosed printed circuit boards (PCBs) for protection against electrical charges can bode well for the market.
