Due to its chip technology, Nvidia is the far-and-way leader in the artificial intelligence sector. Throughout the last year, the tech sector has seen a massive increase in AI interest.

As of May 2024, NVIDIA has a market cap of $2.335T, which ranks it third amongst all companies worldwide in terms of market cap.

“The next industrial revolution has begun — companies and countries are partnering with NVIDIA to shift the trillion-dollar traditional data centers to accelerated computing and build a new type of data center — AI factories — to produce a new commodity: artificial intelligence,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “AI will bring significant productivity gains to nearly every industry and help companies be more cost- and energy-efficient while expanding revenue opportunities.”
