Graphic Processing Unit Market Introduction

Graphic processing unit market to value over USD 160 billion by 2027 end and register a CAGR of over 30% from 2020 to 2027.
Graphic processing unit is heavily used in the gaming and entertainment sector. The rising number of complex graphic games is the major factor driving the growth of the market. These heavy application games require high memory graphic cards, thus driving the growth of the market. The increasing choice of portable computing devices is also encouraging the growth of this market across the world. The growth in the adoption of virtual reality headsets is anticipated to provide immense opportunities for the in the foreseeable future.

The Asia Pacific Graphic processing unit market held a dominant market share and is predicted to continue to do so in the forecast period. The requirement for Graphic processing units is presumed to increase in the region due to the rapid growth of the gaming industry in countries including China, Japan, and India. According to the Netherlands Enterprise Agency Report, the gaming industry in Japan is the third-largest in the world and generated significant market revenue. Emerging technologies, such as AR & VR, and the rising trend of freemium games, will foster the adoption of Graphic processing units to deliver a better gaming experience. Moreover, an increase in use of AI for brining innovation sectors, such as healthcare and manufacturing, will also spur the demand for Graphic processing units. 

The Graphic processing unit market is dominated by large corporations, such as NVIDIA, AMD, and Intel, that hold a majority market share. The competition is quite intense as companies are rapidly developing next-generation advanced graphic chips to support computing-intensive applications. For instance, in 2018, Lincom Electronics geared up to produce its graphics card chip on a large-scale. The chip, Lincom GP101, can be used to connect a computer through ports including DVI & VGA and supports standards such as OpenGL ES2.0. GPU chip manufacturers are collaborating with technology companies to integrate advanced technologies into their products. For instance, in 2019, NVIDIA collaborated with IBM to develop next-generation chips for AI and machine learning applications. Mobile manufacturing companies are also developing their own Graphic processing units to be used in mobile devices. This enables them to gain more market share and provides them with a competitive advantage to compete with major GPU manufacturers. For instance, in 2017, Samsung developed its own GPU for use in its mobile devices. The in-house manufacturing of Graphic processing units enabled the company to reduce costs by eliminating the need to secure components from an outside company.
