RISC-V International has more than 1,000 members across over 50 countries who are working in hardware, software, services, and various industries for a strong and healthy RISC-V ecosystem. It is projected that by 2025 there will be over 62 billion RISC-V CPU cores and the total market for RISC-V IP and software is expected to grow to over $1b by 2025.  

In 2020 alone, we saw successes with newly defined RISC-V accelerator architectures, affordable RISC-V open source small-board computers, development boards for personal computers, and an incredibly fast 64-bit RISC-V Core as the community also ratified key specifications and made advances in security. 

As we see the growth of RISC-V into industries such as AI, machine learning, blockchain, 5G, medical, and industrial, we will see the ratifications of new extensions that enable this growth.
