Worldwide Server Market Shares, 1Q19: Server Market Growth Tied to Configuration Richness as Shipment Volume Slows
This IDC study provides a brief overview of the worldwide server market performance during the first quarter of 2019."Demand from both enterprise buyers and hyperscale companies purchasing through ODMs was less voracious than in previous quarters; coupled with a difficult comparison period from a year ago, this impacted the pace of market growth during the first quarter," said Sebastian Lagana, research manager, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC. "This was most evident in declining unit shipments during the quarter, although year-over-year (Y/Y) average selling price (ASP) increases supported revenue growth for many vendors. As long as demand for richly configured servers supports further ASP growth, the market will offset slight declines in unit volume."
