The global graphic processing unit market was valued at USD 38.6 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 31.3% from 2023 to 2032. The market is expected to reach USD 587.8 billion by 2032. Because there is an increasing demand for specialized processors that can handle intricate mathematical computations linked to 2D and 3D graphics, the global market for graphic processing units has grown rapidly. Furthermore, the global graphic processing unit market is expanding due to the increasing use of portable computers, such as laptops.

Market Introduction:

A computer chip called a graphics processing unit, sometimes called a visual processing unit, is used to compute mathematical operations to produce images quickly. Compared to CPUs, it comprises hundreds of cores that can manage thousands of threads simultaneously. The CPU's limited cache memory and few cores limit its capacity to manage several threads simultaneously. Graphic processing units can be found in chipsets on motherboards, in plug-in cards, or on the same chip as the CPU. The GPUs in standalone cards have their RAM, but they share the CPU's main memory with the chipset. The graphic processing unit uses transistors to carry out mathematical operations related to 3D graphics. Mobile phones, tablets, laptops, wearable medical technology, and many other portable electronic devices all employ GPUs. In applications like virtual reality and augmented reality systems, supercomputers, and artificial intelligence platforms, integrated and hybrid GPUs are constantly being developed to replace specialized GPUs.

Market Dynamics:


Growing adoption of portable computing devices- The global graphic processing unit market is expanding due to consumers' increasing use of laptops and other portable computers. Furthermore, the primary driver of the market's expansion is the growing quantity of sophisticated graphic games. The industry is expanding since these demanding application games require graphic cards with a lot of RAM.


Declining sales of desktop computers- The market expansion for graphics processing units (GPUs) may be constrained by the ongoing decline in desktop computer demand. There has been a noticeable decline in PC shipments for computer makers globally, perhaps due to the pandemic-induced preference for desktops and laptops. For instance, the well-known consumer electronics giant Lenovo reported revenue of USD 15.3 billion for the fourth quarter of 2022, a 24% decrease due to the sharp reduction in PC shipments. GPU demand is further hampered by the fact that advanced graphic design tools are incompatible with them.


New technological penetration- It is predicted that the demand for GPUs will increase due to the big data technology's quick adoption to obtain actionable business insight. Many businesses and industries are embracing big data analytics and decision intelligence for opinion mining, text analysis, and retrieval due to shifting business models and rising data quantities. GPU adoption will accelerate and make business and management decision-making easier because of the increased emphasis on technological intervention for efficient business management and decision-making.
