Market Watch (Q2'2022)
Market Watch is the JPR market report on GPU quarterly shipments
Jon Peddie & Robert Dow
JPR’s quarterly report Market Watch gives market share (in units) of all suppliers of graphics chips, integrated, embedded, and discrete worldwide. Historical data is included from Q1’04. Market Watch is supplied in electronic form and includes a written summary of the quarter and an in-depth spreadsheet.
Market Watch is a valuable resource for understanding the PC market providing insight into the capabilities of PCs in use today and coming in the near future.
The latest version of Market Watch is our Q2'2022 Report.
Q2’22 saw a significant decline in GPU and PC shipments quarter to quarter, and the worst may not be over
PC GPU market shipments decreased by -12.7% sequentially and decreased by -32% year to year.
Jon Peddie Research reports the growth of the global PC-based graphics processor unit (GPU) market reached 84 million units in Q2'22 and PC CPU shipments decreased by -34% year over year. Overall, GPUs will have a compound annual growth rate of 3.8% during 2022–2026 and reach an installed base of 3,103 million units at the end of the forecast period. Over the next five years, the penetration of discrete GPUs (dGPUs) in the PC will grow to reach a level of 30%.
AMD’s overall market share percentage from last quarter increased by 1.1%, Intel’s market share increased by 2.0%, and Nvidia’s market share decreased by -3.15%, as indicated in the following chart.
|Quarterly shipments and market share percentages, as well as year-to-year results.|
Overall GPU unit shipments decreased by -14.9% from last quarter. AMD’s shipments decreased by -7.6%, Intel’s shipments decreased by -9.8%, and Nvidia’s shipments decreased by -25.7%.
- The GPU’s overall attach rate (which includes integrated and discrete GPUs, desktop, notebook, and workstation) to PCs for the quarter was 121%, down -7.9% from last quarter.
- The overall PC CPU market decreased by -7.0% quarter to quarter and decreased -33.7% year to year.
- Desktop graphics add-in boards (AIBs that use discrete GPUs) decreased by -22.6% from the last quarter.
- This quarter saw 0.0% change in tablet shipments from last quarter.
The second quarter is typically down compared to the previous quarter, and this quarter was down -12.7% from last quarter, which is below the 10-year average of -10.5%.
GPUs have been a leading indicator of the market because a GPU goes into a system before the suppliers ship the PC. Most of the semiconductor vendors are guiding down for the next quarter an average of -2.81%. Last quarter they guided 1.98%, which was too high.
Jon Peddie, president of JPR, noted, “This quarter had overall negative results for the GPU vendors, compared to the last quarter. Global events such as the continued war in Ukraine, Russia’s manipulation of gas supplies to Western Europe, and the subsequent nervousness those events create have put a dampener on Europe’s economy; the UK is in recession with high inflation.”
The US was able to get some significant legislation passed, such as student loan relief, a stronger climate control bill with big provisions for alternative energy sources, and the long-sought CHIPs bill. All of that stimulus and infrastructure investment will position the US in a much stronger position for the flowing decade and longer.
“Forecasting has never been more challenging, and as a result, our forecast and others’ will get revised frequently as new data appears,” Peddie said.
