Graphic add-in boards (AIB) are used in desktop computers, and other scientific instruments to augment graphics, memory and communication capabilities. These devices generate output image with good picture quality. Graphic Board Market use discreet graphic chips and high speed memory that improves its performance for producing good quality image and this is expected to increase the market share in the age of 2 dimension (2D) and 3 dimension (3D) images. These devices have been directly sold to customers and are installed in servers, workstations and factories.
Video cards are often referred to as graphic AIB and graphic AIB market possesses consolidated market structure. This kind of market structure helps existing firms to have larger capital base and this induces these large firms to invest on graphic AIB market. Growing market share of electronics goods and huge investment attract television manufacturers to come up with innovative televisions with improved visual image quality. These televisions offer wide formats, and improved screen resolution which is appropriate for different types of game. These features are expected to broaden the market scope for gaming monitors and is also likely to drive the global market for graphic AIB. Moreover, larger number of personal computer manufacturers produce and sell graphic AIB as inbuilt system. Many graphic AIB producers sell motherboards also. This kind of horizontal and vertical integration helps to expand the market for graphic AIB as well.
Smartphones, tablets and laptops are increasingly replacing the market for personal computers. Hence, gaming service in smartphones, tablets and laptops are in growing demand and this is expected to reduce demand for gaming service in monitor based devices such as personal computers. Hence, this is expected to reduce demand for graphic AIB which are mostly use in desktop computers.
Graphic AIB is in growing demand as this has been extensively used as an important component in personal computer. The extent of market gradually increases as graphic AIB are used in supercomputers, simulators and remote workstations as well. Supercomputers and remote workstations are used in scientific and technical applications such as defense, aerospace, and research and development among others. As large number of countries increase their investment on scientific research, the market for graphic AIB is likely to expand exponentially during the forecast period.
Graphic AIB market is segmented on the basis of end users and the segments are desktop computers, notebook, workstations, servers and others. The market for graphic AIB is likely to witness steep growth rate for desktop computers. Different types of gaming service with 3D image is in growing demand and this is likely to boost the market as well. Moreover, accelerating demand for desktop computers is expected to trigger the growth opportunity of this market. Workstations and others that includes scientific instruments are expected to hold significant market share for graphic AIB market. Increasing application of graphic AIB in workstations and scientific instruments are projected to expand the market as well.
The market for graphic AIB is segmented on the basis of regions as well and the regional segments are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (MEA) and Latin America. North America holds the largest market share in global graphic AIB market. Due to increasing investment in scientific research, defense and aerospace, North America is likely to pose highest demand for graphic AIB market. Asia Pacific is likely to be the fastest growing region in this market as there is increasing share of consumer electronics and rising investment in scientific research and development. Europe is also not lagged behind in this market.
Some of the key market players of this market are s3 Group, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Nvidia company, and Matrox company among others.
