Global Coprocessor Market 2017-2021
A coprocessor is a set of circuits in a microprocessor chip that is designed to perform some specific function at a faster rate than a basic microprocessor circuit. A coprocessor divests specialized processing operations, thereby decreasing the burden on the basic microprocessor circuitry, allowing it to work at the optimum speed. Discrete graphics processing unit (GPU) and GPU present in the smartphones are popular coprocessors.Technavio’s analysts forecast the global coprocessor market to grow at a CAGR of 6.76% during the period 2017-2021.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global coprocessor market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated by the discrete GPUs for PCs and smartphone coprocessors.The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Coprocessor Market 2017-2021
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global coprocessor market: AMD, Apple, ARM, Imagination Technologies, NVIDIA, and Qualcomm.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is innovations in discrete GPU. NVIDIA is striving to provide a desktop-like gaming experience in laptops. At the GTC 2016 conference, the company announced the launch of the Quadro M5500 notebook video card for professional game developers. The M5500 is the first Quadro GPU that supports virtual reality (VR), enabling its computing partners to make their professional laptops VR ready.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is growing popularity of smartphones. The smartphone market has been growing rapidly over the years, and ever since the advent of the iPhone. One of the biggest decisions that customers make in their lives is deciding which smartphone to buy. Prior to the iPhone, players like Blackberry, Nokia, HTC, Siemens, O2, etc. had dominated the mobile phone market, but could never achieve the functionality and ease of use that the iPhone or its successive peers could provide. They were heavy, clunky and used keyboards for input. However, today, almost every smartphone uses touch as the primary mode of input.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is innovations in integrated GPU for computers. The growing adoption of integrated GPUs over discrete GPUs is one of the major trends witnessed in the global GPU market. Proliferation of integrated GPUs in applications such as notebooks, workstations, and desktops for enhancing the visual content has propelled its demand by the end-customers of these devices. Graphics processor vendors such as Intel and AMD provide high graphics through integrated GPUs in order to meet such demands. Thus, the increasing adoption of integrated GPUs over discrete GPUs is one of the major trends that will affect the global discrete GPU market.
