Worldwide Client and Server Operating Environments 2014–2018 Forecast and 2013 Vendor Shares

Worldwide Client and Server Operating Environments 2014–2018 Forecast and 2013 Vendor Shares

This IDC study forecasts operating environments shipments, installed base, and operating systems and subsystem revenue for 2014–2018. Worldwide market size is provided for 2013.

"After a tough 2012, the operating systems business bounced back in 2013, thanks to a strong performance by Microsoft and the Americas region," said Al Gillen, program VP, Servers and System Software, IDC. "This 10.1% growth rate is impressive, but this growth was made possible in part by a weak performance in 2012. While we expect the operating environments shipments and operating systems and subsystem revenue to continue on a positive growth trajectory, we do not expect to see another year of double-digit growth anytime soon."
