As per IDC data, the

graphic cards industry, as a whole, has grown by 15-20 percent in the

previous calendar year. The rate of growth of the utility of graphic

cards has been slow, but steady. The attach rate in India is still

too low; compared to other markets worldwide. In the previous year,

we have seen a 40 percent growth YoY and the same is expected to

continue this year as well. There is definitely an upward demand for

products, as applications are asking for more and more power and are

getting more complex. Various applications need higher capacity CPUs

to run, making it mandatory for users to add a GPU to their current

setup to optimize utility. There is a clear and positive move in the

GPU industry as an increasing number of consumers are realizing the

importance of GPU for their applications. The total GPU market is

around six lakh units. NVIDIA has a clear edge with 60-70 percent

market share in consumer graphic cards and 90 percent share in

professional graphic cards.

We have constantly

endeavored to educate and create higher awareness at all levels in

order to better penetrate this industry and to ensure higher usage of

graphic cards. We regularly have workshops for channel partners as

well as other target users of graphic cards in all regions where we

have our branches. These workshops are conducted along with NVIDIA,

that contributes its technical expertise. The second decade of the

21st century is all about evolving technology wherein we will see a

complete convergence of electronics and telecom.
