It has not escaped everyone’s notice: the shortage of components continues to affect the hardware industry. And the graphics card market is very affected. But the future may not be as bleak as one might think. Explanations.
Office Jon Peddie Research has just unveiled a new study on the graphics card market. We learn in particular that during the past year, deliveries of graphics cards grew by 25.7% during the third quarter. This represents some 12.7 million units sold worldwide. By way of comparison 10.1 million units were sold the year behind over the same period.
A juicy graphics card market
This third quarter of 2021 is also very lucrative, since sales total $ 13.7 billion in the third quarter of 2021 alone. Be careful, however, this figure does not only include graphics cards for individuals, but also GPUs intended for servers, rendering machines, cars, etc. scale, especially with the democratization of autonomous cars.
We also learn that NVIDIA largely dominates the market with 78.2% of sales. However, AMD is slowly continuing its path and nibbling 1% more than in 2020. At the moment, there are only two major challengers in the sector, but in 2022, Intel will join the ring for also try to impose its products. We know in particular that the American manufacturer intends to be quite aggressive in terms of pricing on the entry level, and that it also keeps under the elbow something to compete with the RTX 3070 from Nvidia.
The year 2021 has been quite difficult for those wishing to get a GPU and set up a new configuration, and the trend could continue, since Intel recently declared that we should not expect an exit from the crisis before. . 2023.
