Yes it's necessary due to following facts:

1. There will be more mobile user who will access internet via smartphones then the desktop, tablets etc.

2. Google started giving priority to mobile friendly websites more! so, having a mobile friendly websites gives you a ranking boost.

3. AMP pages are further enhancements which google is making to make your website load faster on mobile phones.

No it's not and No Google does not give priority to it either as some claim. Not all websites need to be mobile friendly. If your customers mainly use a smart device / mobile then you should have it friendly for such. Has nothing to do with SEO, has more to do with your customers/visitors.

If your site is adapted for viewing on mobile devices then it essentially increases site ranking. Also, according to the latest surveys, 80% of users tend to buy items, read news etc on the web being on the road using their tablets, i-phones, smartphones.

yes it is important if you want to target mobile users. And if you want to rank your site on mobile search results then you must need to make your pages responsive or AMP (accelerated mobile page).

And if you only targeting your audience on desktop then you have no need to make it responsive but for a better user experience you should make your site responsive..

nowadays most people access the internet through mobile devices. For better user experience you need a mobile responsive website. If your site doesn't support for mobile users, they sure departure from your site and that makes high bounce rates. High bounce rates are a negative factor in SEO. so please make your site mobile friendly

Again not all websites require mobile and not all websites require SEO.. It fully depends upon the business and what is being offered and how.

Is Mobile responsive website is necessary for SEO?

Of course Yes!

Day by day the use of mobile phones is increasing rapidly. It is very important to have SEO friendly and mobile friendly websites because if you do not follow the Google's guidelines and rules your ranking may go down or you do not get the expected results. If a mobile user faces difficulty in using your websites on his/her mobile phones then, he will quit and it will increase your website bounce rate as well.

So, always keep in mind, follow Google guidelines and rules.

Thanks a lot for reading.

Re-read the memo from Google - it's supposed to be applicable to mobile search results.

Absolutely

Having a mobile-friendly website holds ranking power.

Not only that but when most people are using mobile devices (and the number keeps growing) why would you miss out on not making a site mobile-friendly? That would lose ranking power and valuable traffic.
