Key Trends and Analysis of the Global Cryptocurrency Mining Equipment Market:
- Among product types, GPUs segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 17.95% over the forecast period. GPUs have much higher processing power as compared to regular computing machines making them the ideal choice for cryptocurrency mining. The GPUs are being extensively used on account of its capability to process multiple complex algorithms swiftly with leveraging on its RAM, which is not to be found in ASICs. Moreover, development of ASICs for digital assets other than bitcoin was not profitable enough.
- Based on mining types, cloud mining services segment dominated the global cryptocurrency mining equipment market share and it is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. Cloud mining services facilitate mining operations to be carried out with the help of a remote datacenter having shared processing power. Cloud mining enables miners to mine cryptocurrencies without having to manage mining hardware. It is provided as a service and hence some cost is incurred by the service providers. In return, the miners gets benefited with the mining facilities over cloud, through the block rewards and the transaction fees of the associated altcoin and the mining pool.
