Worldwide Server Market Revenue Grew 7.5% Year Over Year in the Fourth Quarter of 2019, According to IDC

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 12, 2020 — According to the International Data Corporation ( IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, vendor revenue in the worldwide server market grew 7.5% year over year to $25.4 billion during the fourth quarter of 2019 (4Q19). Worldwide server shipments grew 14.0% year over year to just over 3.4 million units in 4Q19.

In terms of server class, volume server revenue was up 12.1% to $19.7 billion, while midrange server revenue declined 14.1% to $3.3 billion and high-end systems grew by 8.9% to $2.4 billion.

"While the server market recaptured growth during the fourth quarter, it was a bit of a mixed bag as robust hyperscaler demand benefited the ODM Direct vendor group, which combined with strong non-x86 server purchases to drive the broader market," said Sebastian Lagana, research manager, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC. "While the OEM x86 market was tepid, it's worth noting that 4Q18 was one of the most challenging comparison periods in history, during which many OEMs generated double-digit growth and large revenue bases."
