Global GPU as a Service (GPUaaS) Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

The global GPU as a service (GPUaaS) market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 30 Billion by the end of 2035 by growing at a CAGR of ~30% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 1 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing adoption of autonomous cars by a large number of people. It is expected that between 2019 and 2024, there will be an increase in the number of autonomous vehicles with at least Level 1 autonomy (driver assistance). Globally, there were reportedly about 30 million autonomous vehicles in 2019, and this figure is expected to rise to approximately 50 million by 2024.


The processing demands of ADAS and autonomous vehicle technologies are entirely within the capabilities of the GPU, particularly in the areas of parallel signal processing and image analysis. The GPU is tipped to become the workhorse of the autonomous vehicle, since it could provide the computing skills that would allow future automobiles to grow increasingly aware of and reactive to their surroundings so they're able to operate dependably, efficiently, and safely. Hence, owing to the growing number of road accidents, it is estimated that the demand for autonomous vehicles would increase, further boosting the market growth. However, as ADAS platforms demand higher levels of performance, larger and more potent GPUs would be needed. Therefore, manufacturers are focusing more on advancing their GPU in order to satisfy a growing need, which would also boost the market growth.

Global GPU as a Service (GPUaaS) Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Demand for Games - There are about 3 billion gamers who are active worldwide. Approximately, 4 billion gamers are projected to exist worldwide by 2024. Not only on laptops or PC, also the games are also extensively played on mobile phones. Current smartphones have cutting-edge embedded chipsets that, depending on their programming, are capable of performing a wide range of functions. The performance of the GPUs, which are a crucial component of those chipsets as mobile games push the limits of their capabilities, is becoming more and more significant. Hence, growing demand for games from all around the world is estimated to boost the growth of the market.

  • Rising Government Initiatives for Smart City Development - A total of about USD 27 billion was allotted in India for the "Smart City Mission" in 2020. By 2020, approximately 5,330 projects totaling about USD 23 billion—or approximately 85% of the total—had been submitted for bid.

  • Surge in Adoption of Cloud Based Services - About 60% of organizations in United Nations moved their workloads to the cloud in 2020 alone.

  • Growth in Adoption of GPU in Autonomous Vehicles - NVIDIA, in 2020, unveiled NVIDIA DRIVE Thor, its centralized computer of the next generation for safe and secure autonomous vehicles. The next-generation superchip includes the NVIDIA Grace CPU and NVIDIA Ada Lovelace GPU in addition to the cutting-edge AI capabilities initially seen in the NVIDIA Hopper Multi-Instance GPU architecture.

  • Increasing Sale of Gaming Laptops - In India, gaming laptop sales increased from about 39,000 in 2016 to approximately 7,00,000 in 2021. There is at least one graphics processing unit in laptops (GPU). An integrated graphics card is what it is, and it is built-in. Both an integrated and a discrete graphics card are included in gaming laptops. The dedicated graphics card is more powerful and is exclusively utilized for tasks requiring intensive graphics, such as gaming, and more. Hence, owing to the growing sales of gaming laptops the market is expected to extend further.


  • High Incurrence Cost – GPU are harder to build and of greater quality than those from earlier generations. Simply explained, one of the primary factors contributing to the high price of current GPUs is greater manufacturing expenses. Moreover, global chip shortages are another major factor for growing cost of GPUs. Another, main causes of the steadily rising GPU pricing has been the absence of competition between the middle of the 2010s and the beginning of the 2020s, particularly from AMD.
  • Lack of Awareness Regarding Technology Among People
  • Lack in Performing General Purpose Computing Tasks

Global GPU as a Service (GPUaaS) Market Segmentation

The global GPU as a Service (GPUaaS) market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by delivery mode into public cloud, private cloud, and hybrid cloud. Out of these segments, the hybrid cloud segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The use of just one strategy is insufficient for many businesses. Using both public cloud resources from a service provider and on-premises systems, hybrid cloud computing combines both in order to benefit from the security and management of each. Compared to the other industrial segments, more than 79% of IT companies and GCCs are estimated to adopt a hybrid work model. However, a large number of organizations are also planning to implement hybrid clouds over the forecast period. Hence, owing to this, the demand for GUPaaS is estimated to increase. Using the service, hybrid cloud users would be able to smoothly organize and live-migrate AI workloads across virtual servers with GPU acceleration.

The global GPU as a Service (GPUaaS) market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into gaming, automotive, real estate, and healthcare. Amongst which, the gaming segment is anticipated to have the fastest growth over the forecast period, backed by growing launch of games and a surge in the number of streamers all around the globe. Every setup used by a streamer must have a good graphics card. It guarantees a smooth HD streaming experience that can handle even the most demanding games. Although streaming is largely a CPU-intensive activity, the GPU indirectly affects the overall experience. Although the CPU is the brain of the computer, the GPU increases the CPU's efficiency by doing repetitive work and freeing up memory. The CPU organizes the information and sends it to the streaming services, while the GPU creates a better-quality game image and boosts streaming quality. Hence, the demand for GPUaaS by streamers is increasing. Moreover, owing to growing people preference, a large number of key players are advancing their technology in GPU in order to satisfy the user in gaming sector, is expected to boost the segment’s growth in the market.
