Japan Server 2015–2019 Forecast and 2014 Analysis

In this study, IDC analyzes the shipment trends in the Japan server market in 2014 and forecast the market size for the next five years.

In terms of the size of the Japan server market of 2014, positive growth was observed for x86 servers and supercomputers. By contrast, RISC servers, IA-64 servers, mainframes, and business servers experienced negative growth. IDC believes that, from 2015 onward, the Japan server market will contract, with a compound annual growth rate for 2015 to 2019 below zero.

IDC Japan server research manager Kazuhiko Hayashi argues: "The Japan server market of 2014 — excluding ODM direct and large-scale HPC projects — experienced negative growth. Existing server vendors cannot take an optimistic view of the enterprise server market. IDC predicts that new demand for servers for use in the 3rd Platform will largely shift toward x86 servers. Meanwhile, the mainframe and RISC/IA-64 server markets are established based on replacement demand, and thus improvements to server performance will not lead to market expansion. If server vendors are not able to create new demand themselves, the very continuity of their business in these product categories will be at a risk. For vendors of RISC and IA-64 servers, in particular, it will be necessary to partner with other companies and to create demand by combining those partners' products and services with their own products."
