PCB Market Share - Zuken #2

Gary Smith EDA, a provider of market intelligence and advisory services for the global Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry, has updated its latest worldwide market share figures for the 2009 PCB design market, showing Zuken in second place. While this may be a surprise to some, it merely serves to document what we have known for some time.

Zuken Prompts Update

The revision of these figures by Gary Smith EDA was prompted by Zuken, following the publication and promotion of the incorrect numbers by other EDA vendors who were attempting to highlight their dominance over the market.

Zuken’s figures used in these calculations of market share had not been provided or verified by Zuken. Upon discovery, we approached Gary Smith EDA and worked with them to correct these figures. This resulted in a formal update to the subscribers of Gary Smith EDA market data.

Overall PCB Market Share

Our customers in the USA and Europe have often told us that we are the best kept secret in PCB design. Perhaps with this new recognition clearly highlighting our #2 position, that secret may finally be out of the bag! Not only do we have a solid PCB market share (ranked second for all PCB-related products), but we also have an even higher relative share in the PCB layout segment, which tracks tools used to layout printed circuit boards.

Our record of innovation within PCB design as well as wire, harness and cable design, and library and design data management, has lead us to work with many of the world’s leading companies in all industry segments on the cutting edge of innovation across industry sectors.

You’ll be hearing more over the next few weeks about the impact of this update and how it affects more than just the providers of software solutions.

    As general manager for Zuken Europe and America, and the Western representative on the global board of directors, my job is to oversee all sales, product development and general business operations within the region, based from our European HQ in Munich. This keeps me very busy travelling the world. When I do get some spare time I enjoy quality time with my family and flying radio controlled gliders.
