Market Dynamics


The increasing demand of smartphones at the global level is the one of the factors for the growth of microprocessor. The factors such as change in the lifestyle of consumers, rising disposable income increases the probability of consumer spending on media, entertainment, and networking and mobile communication; leading to higher potential sales of smartphones. There is a need of smartphone with the faster operation which can be used for the gaming, entertainment and other official work. The smartphone speed is directly proportional to the microprocessors used in the smartphone. Thus, the increasing sales of smartphones will drive the microprocessors market.


Over the last few years, the adoption of smartphones and tablets has had an influence on PC demand. Microprocessor and GPU market growth has been impacted by the portability and performance offered by new generation smartphones and tablets.

When compared to processors and GPUs used in smartphones and tablets, PC processors and GPUs are frequently more expensive. Desktop PCs are experiencing the steepest decline in the PC category, as more users opt for portable devices for day-to-day tasks. Furthermore, because PCs have a lengthy lifecycle and cannot be replaced in a short period of time, there is a growth in overall demand for the PC industry.


A rise in demand for AI and deep learning-based applications, such as supercomputers as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Deep learning training and inference systems are in high demand across a wide range of industries, from automated driving to electrical products to industrial automation. Deep learning is utilized in smart devices like smart speakers and smart TVs for voice translation and automated hearing. To give results, these devices adjust to the surrounding speech and comprehend user preferences. The finance and banking industry is another industry that has seen a lot of AI-based application adoption in recent years.

For bitcoin mining, the fast-growing cryptocurrency business employs high-performance AI processors. By using NLP techniques, finance organizations deploy AI chatbots to provide self-help client services. The deployment of supercomputers is quickly increasing among research businesses, institutions, and governments around the world as the number of COVID-19 cases grows. These supercomputers use high-performance AI processors and GPU accelerators to aid in the development of COVID-19 viral vaccines and therapeutics.


A significant rise in microprocessor energy consumption in wireless networks has been identified as a major threat to environmental protection and long-term growth. The demand for worldwide data access has risen dramatically as a result of access to high-speed internet supplied by next-generation wireless networks and increased smartphone usage, driving a dramatic expansion of network infrastructures and escalating energy demand. To overcome these challenges, wireless network service providers and chip manufacturers have made green evolution a top goal.

Recent Developments

  • For instance, Intel released 11th Gen Intel® CoreTM processors with Intel® Iris® Xe graphics for thin laptops in September 2010 to provide 2.7x quicker content production, more than 20% faster office productivity, and more than 2x faster gaming and streaming.
  • Qualcomm introduced three new Snapdragon processors in January 2020: the 720G, 662, and 460. The new CPUs support dual-frequency (L1 and L5) GNSS for increased location positioning accuracy and resilience, as well as Indian Constellation navigation (NavIC). The processors support high-speed 4G connectivity and come with built-in Bluetooth 5.1 and WIFI 6 technologies, allowing for quick and seamless connectivity while conserving battery. In 2019,
  • In Dec 2019, the American IT and microprocessors business Intel Corporation acquired Habana Labs Ltd, an Israeli AI chip processor for USD 2 billion. Intel Corporation planned to broaden its artificial intelligence portfolio and boost its AI chip market with this acquisition.
