It depends on what you mean by "semantic search".  You have the low end offering which just do the statistical clustering (very few new advances over the last 30 years from the AI perspective), to those in the mid-range which integrate true semantic analysis techniques at the search interface level and apply them to query processing, to more complex search architectures which integrate semantic techniques at the search index level.  The market for the first type is fairly old, the market for the second type is emerging, and the market for the third type is just beginning to be understood (and is oddly enough both old and emerging).


I also am not at SemTech (due to family illness).  But just to reassure you, that even if you were at SemTech you would still need to compare the vendor answers to the components of a full-fledge search architecture framework. 


Best regards,
