Responsive website design is not just about aesthetic and accessibility, there is a significant online visibility benefit as well. In 2015 Google introduced Mobilegeddon, an update to it's PageRank algorithim which changed the way results are ranked on mobile devices. This followed a recognition from Google that not only were more users coming from mobile but that user experiences were not on par with desktop.
The new algorithm placed more emphasis on mobile friendly sites, effectively demoting websites which are not mobile friendly / responsive.
