GDDR6 Market: Introduction

  • GDDR6 is an abbreviation for Graphics Double Data Rate Type Six Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory. This is a type of synchronous random access graphics memory (SGRAM). It has a high bandwidth interface that is highly suitable for game consoles, use with graphics cards, and high performance computers.
  • Memory is essential for all computers, ranging from home PCs and laptops to smartphones. It is also one of the key components of every graphics card; from the GPU of the PC to the core used in all game consoles.
  • The GDDR6 memory is available in higher quantities. GDDR6 is available in 8GB and 16GB chips. Graphics memory requires high bandwidth rather than low latency, as graphics cards move numerous large files at once.
  • The move from GDDR5 to GDDR6 was a significant development in this area. The number of data transfers per clock cycle doubled, from 2 to 4, and individual memory chips can currently read in dual channel arrangements rather than just single channel.
  • Demand for GDDR6 is projected to increase, as next generation consoles have more memory
  • GDDR6 are utilized in various applications for artificial intelligence, network routing and switching, autonomous driving, graphics cards, crypto mining cards, virtual and augmented reality, PC gaming, etc.

Rising Demand for GDDR6 in Consumer Electronics and Automotive Industries

  • Based on end-use industry, the market can be segmented into consumer electronics, automotive, telecommunications, and others  
  • Consumer electronics and automotive segments of the global GDDR6 market are estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period due to a rise in the usage of GDDR6 for artificial intelligence, network routing and switching, autonomous driving, graphics cards, crypto mining cards, virtual and augmented reality, PC gaming, etc.
  • GDDR6 also offers several benefits for high-performance computing, to workstations, consoles and laptops, offering an exceptional combination of power, bandwidth, and density in the industry
  • Presently, several manufacturers offer voice control based on AI. The performance of these systems has improved noticeably in the last few years. Moreover, automotive vehicles are increasingly expected to perceive their environment and react appropriately, as is the case in advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Currently, AI is playing a growing role. This is also expected to drive the automotive segment of the global GDDR6 market.
  • Increasing usage of GDDR6 for 4k gaming, which requires at least 8GB graphics memory, is also propelling the GDDR6 market

Asia Pacific to Lead Global GDDR6 Market

  • In terms of region, the global GDDR6 market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and Middle East & Africa
  • Usage of gaming consoles by young people is increasing across Asia Pacific. The current generation of consoles use older GDDR5 memory; however, the latest PC graphics cards employ newer, faster GDDR6 that would mean better memory is likely to be utilized inside the gaming consoles. In short, GDDR6 is one of the key bits of technology that power gaming PC and consoles. Innovation in technologies are expected to increase the demand for GDDR6.
  • The GDDR6 market in Asia Pacific is expected to expand at a high growth rate due to the presence of major players in the region and increased competition among them. The market in North America is likely to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period because of reduced competition in the market in the region.
