Searching for a tech market that’s growing fast? Then look into gaming.

Looking for gaming hardware that can give your customers a competitive edge? Then check out the Intel NUC family.

You probably know that Intel NUCs are ideal for business applications such as conferencing and digital signage. But did you know these small compute devices are also perfect for high-performance gaming?

Gaming hardware: a fast-growing market

For tech providers, being able to offer a new hardware option for gaming is a big deal. Because gaming hardware is a big business. And it’s quickly getting even bigger.

Over the next 3 years, global sales of videogame hardware —  mobile devices, consoles and PCs — will increase on average by 8% a year, predicts market watcher Technavio.

By 2025, Technavio adds, all that compound growth will bring gaming hardware sales to nearly $75.5 billion worldwide. That’s a lot of “Pokemon: Brilliant Diamond.”

What’s behind the gaming market’s fast growth? Well, gamers are always looking for a competitive edge. And one big edge is hardware.
