With exponentially rising computing requirements brought in by new & innovative software technologies, the GPUs, which are specifically designed to have a greater number of parallel execution units as well as higher transistor counts to carry out highly parallel operation, would be experiencing increased demands from a number of significantly graphics-intensive software applications that depend on the GPU to be able to operate in a smooth manner.

Global GPU market | Impact of the expanding videogame industry

Since their humble inception in early 1970s, video games have evolved from extremely simple interactions that utilized simple geometric shapes to full-blown extremely immersive cinematic experiences that captivate the senses. According to nonprofit organization Consumer Reports, the first video game to take advantage of the GPU technology was ‘Quake’ in 1996. Though the game ran smoothly by just depending on the computing capabilities of the CPU, handing over the graphics rendering responsibilities to the GPU transformed the game into a graphical experience that is still fondly remembered to date.

As for modern-day video games, it is no secret that they all require an extremely powerful graphics card just to be able to get past the loading screen. This highly GPU-dependent sector would thus be majorly propelling the global GPU market in the years to come. The video game industry’s growth is such that the now-infamous 2018 video game Red Dead Redemption 2, which was developed by Rockstar Studios, recoded sales worth an unprecedented $725 million within the first three days of its release. This achievement makes it the second-biggest entertainment launch in history, behind the equally infamous Rockstar Studio-developed video game Grand Theft Auto 5, which recorded $1 billion in sales within the first three days of its launch in 2013.

The robust popularity of video games has led to GPU market players capitalizing extensively on the subsequent demand for gaming consoles. Indeed, the ESAC Report 2018 claims that around 80% of Canadians consider video games to be a mainstream entertainment. The Germany Trade & Invest Report (Issue 2016/2017) states that consoles were one of the biggest gaming platforms for the year, with a registered 15.6 million active gamers for the segment. The rising popularity of gaming will thus lead to GPU market garnering quite some returns from gaming console sales.

Global GPU market | Impact of the rapidly-developing automotive industry worldwide

Propelled by an ongoing trend under which automobile manufacturers are making their respective vehicles smarter & safer on the road, the automotive sector is expected to contribute majorly toward the growth of the global GPU market. GPU-powered computing is enabling a better level of deep learning, which is being hailed as exactly something the automotive industry needs to make vehicles smart, if not smarter than their drivers.

According to a report by Automotive World, deep learning is an element of artificial intelligence (AI) possessing the capability to fulfil the role of an essential enabler that could make completely autonomous vehicles a reality. This software, however, needs to be able to parse vast amounts of data which requires extensive computing power. Previously this had limited the technology from being adopted for practical applications, but the rise of GPU accelerated computing has allowed the industry to overcome this limitation, opening up considerable avenues of growth for the global GPU market.

Meanwhile, the computing concept of Internet of Things is also opening up new doors for vehicle manufacturers by introducing completely new layers to the conventional concept of a vehicle. The IoT-powered connected, smart vehicle could revolutionize the way people drive & stay in touch with their surroundings – all at the same time without having to distract or reorient their attention. Moreover, by facilitating a plethora of connected-car applications & infotainment services, the global automotive sector holds the potential to mold itself into a prominent IoT champion further driving the global GPU industry to new heights.

GPU industry contenders, in the years to come, are anticipated to capitalize on the untapped application avenues holding tremendous potential. According to a report by Global Market Insights, Inc., the overall GPU market valuation is projected to surpass $80 billion mark by 2024.
