Nvidia is poised to overtake Apple as the world's second-most valuable company, fueled by its dominance in the AI sector, according to a report by Reuters#mce_temp_url#

Nvidia Set to Overtake Apple

The increasing demand for AI applications like OpenAI's ChatGPT, which relies on Nvidia's high-end chips, has driven the company's market value to nearly $2.68 trillion, almost tripling in the past year.

Meanwhile, Apple, which had long been the top company on Wall Street in terms of market value, recently lost its No. 1 position with Microsoft. Apple's market value has dipped to $2.92 trillion due to declining iPhone demand and stiff competition in China.

Observers note that while Apple has long been a leader in growth and innovation, its pace has slowed, suggesting a flattening innovation curve and slower future growth.

Nvidia's impact on the U.S. stock market has significantly influenced the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq. The company's performance has been a major factor in boosting U.S. stocks to record highs, contributing to more than a third of the S&P 500's gains this year.
