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.
Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead embedded systems research analyst at Technavio, says, “A strong characteristic defining this market is the variety of features that a smartphone comes with. Earlier, the ability of touch was what wooed customers. Today, with 20-megapixel cameras becoming standard, eight-core chips in a processor, full high-definition displays, rapid charging technologies, and many such technologies becoming standard on smartphones, no feature is "enough" to satisfy customers.”
Popularity of high graphic games
With the advent of high graphic games, consumers are increasingly seeking an enhanced visual experience. This demand is met by graphic processors, as they improve the visual quality of graphics. In addition, a majority of the consumers find the visual experience to be the differentiating factor. Factors like these have fostered the demand for GPUs to meet the requirements of consumers.
“There has always been growing demand for good graphics in PC games, which led to the endless growth of GPUs. Every AAA game designer looks for the latest graphic cards, or sometimes for presumed graphic cards of three years later on, and makes arrangements to max it out,” adds Sunil.
Growth in cloud mobile gaming
With the growing number of mobile devices, growth in the number of mobile Internet users, and the mobile internet subscription reaching 1.5 billion users in 2015, many of the game providers such as Gameloft and Rovio are exploring mobile platforms to provide cloud gaming. The availability of large screen mobile devices and their higher display resolution provides the users with an enhanced gaming experience.
In addition to smartphones, tablets have witnessed an increase in demand since 2013. They have diverse connectivity options such as 4G, 3G, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi, which makes them more attractive than laptops. More than 65% of the users use their mobile devices daily to play games, and around 67% of the amount spent on smartphones and tablets is in games.
