The PC Graphics Card market falls 6.2% in the first quarter of 2022

For the first time in more than two years, graphics card sales fall in the first quarter of 2022. By now we know that GPU mining is no longer profitable. The world changed completely, energy increased and Ethereum fell, stopping many people from wanting to invest in mining. At the same time, the market is not good and gamers don’t want to pay the prices suggested by the graphics card manufacturer, since a new generation is just around the corner.

With that said, Jon Peddie Research reports that the GPU market is showing signs of slowing down after several years of unprecedented demand. In the first quarter of 2022, GPU manufacturers shipped 96 million units, a 6.2% decrease from the previous quarter. Analysts believe this drop is due to lockdowns in China, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, and increasing delays in the global transportation system. However, JPR predicts a favorable annual growth rate of 6.3% through 2026.

Intel saw a more significant decline, falling 8.7 percent during the first three months, while AMD’s shipments fell 1.5 percent. In contrast, Nvidia saw a 3.2 percent increase. Additionally, demand for discrete GPUs made by AIB partners (EVGA, ASUS, GIGABYTE, ETC) increased by 1.4% over the same period, which is good news for gamers.

The overall picture of the GPU market has remained the same, with Nvidia holding a 78 percent share while AMD sits at 17 percent. Intel has a little over 4 percent, which won’t change until it starts selling its Arc series GPUs in the world.

Analysts also point out that CPU shipments saw a 10.8 percent drop in the first quarter of 2022 compared to the previous quarter and a drop of 26.2 percent compared to the same quarter last year. This negative growth suggests that consumers are not upgrading their CPUs as much, and we will soon see interesting offers to make them more attractive.
