the way we are going to continue to support the customer.
Thank you. Those are helpful.
Our last question comes from Krish Sankar with Cowen & Company. Please go ahead, your line is open.
Yeah, hi, thanks for taking my question. Lip Bu, I had two of them. One is you guys are definitely getting a good traction with your hyperscale customers, I'm kind of curious as your hyperscale customers build their own silicon, how is their requirements for EDA different than the traditional semiconductor customers? Do they see one way to -- one way towards IP blocks or whatever it is? Any color on that would be helpful. And then I have a follow-up.
Okay. Clearly, we are excited about the hyperscale players. They are going to be very important for our industry, because they are quietly building up. As I mentioned earlier, their workload requirement have changed and it's more about data and then so that domain specific processing development and also in the server into the data storage network, scale out going to be even more and more important for them and great partners for us and great customer and we love them. And then first of all, they are bit different on our semiconductor players, time to market is more important to them and also performance scalability is most important to them and that part, I think we worked very from the early days. We are already working on partner with them and we are also very excited about the cloud infrastructure that we also support the cloud infrastructure using some of our tool to do that and we continue to leadership on that. So I think in multiples, expect we're working with our partners in the cloud, and we're excited about the opportunity.
That's very helpful, Lip-Bu. And then a follow up to either you or John, is there a way you can size the hardware market this year. How big is it? And this is that the different segments like FPGA apps, how big are they? Any color that would be helpful.
John M. Wall
Yeah, I don't have any break down in terms of the market data that I can share with you today, but we're very, very happy with -- with how our year is going. And with the strong pipeline that we have leading into Q4.
Thanks, John. Thanks Lip-Bu
