The global graphic processing unit market is estimated to register a robust CAGR during the forecast period, between 2021 and 2028. A graphics processing unit (GPU) is a chip or electronic circuit able that aids in rendering graphics. Its role in providing smooth graphics in modern videos, game consoles, and games is spurring the demand for GPUs. GPU was introduced to the market in 1999. GPUs are classified into two categories, namely discrete and integrated. A discrete GPU is a distinct chip that is fitted on its own circuit board and is typically attached to a PCI Express slot.
GPUs use transistors to complete mathematical calculations of 3D graphics. The display of high-precision color spaces with programmable shader enhances visual quality in 3D graphics. Computer graphics and image processing are enhanced by modern GPUs. Their extremely parallel structure makes them more effective than general-purpose central processing units (CPUs) for algorithms that process large blocks of data in correspondence.
Market Trends, Drivers, Restraints, and Opportunities
- Growing requirement for specialized processors that can manage complex mathematical calculations related to 2D and 3D graphics is driving the market growth.
- Rising adoption of portable computing devices such as laptops is supporting the growth of the graphic processing unit market across the world.
- Rapid growth of mobile based gaming and declining demand for desktops is expected to restrain the growth of GPU market across the world.
- Rise in demand for animation-based games such as FIFA and Need for Speed and growth in adoption of virtual reality headsets are anticipated to provide immense opportunities for the market in coming years.
