Availability of open-source PCB design software is a primary factor expected to restrain market growth. Increasing use of pirated software is a threat to market growth. As a result, strict market implementations are made to restrict the usage of such software. Though PCB design software provide benefits, including ease of deployment and time saving, security problems appear if cloud-based deployment approaches are utilized.

Growth Projections:

Global PCB design software market revenue is expected to register a CAGR of 6.9% and increase from USD 1.15 Billion in 2020 to USD 1.94 Billion in 2028. Increasing need to reduce PCB production costs is a major factor driving market revenue growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

The COVID-19 pandemic severely impacted every industry globally. The PCB design software market was also affected by disruptions in the supply chain of hardware for computer systems. Limitation in terms of workforce also affected market growth to a significant extent. COVID-19 pandemic has a significant impact on the work culture of major segments including education sector, and transportation and consumer electronics industries among others.
