A study conducted by Amazon in 2012 clarifies that if their website loads 1 sec slower than usual, they will lose more than $1.6 billion of sales.

The website's speed depends upon file size, if the files are small, the faster it will load. GZIP compressional is the type of file format & software application that compresses HTTP content, this compression is known to shrink data by up to 80%. As a result, the page speed will increase.

Not just limited to page speed, GZIP is also responsible for decreasing bandwidth consumption & reduced SSL overhead.

Mostly HTML & CSS files have lots of repeated code & blank spaces; GZIP/Brotli compresses standard strings, locates similar lines within a text file, and tentatively replaces them to make the overall file size smaller.
