Worldwide Server Market Revenue Declined 6.0% Year Over Year in the First Quarter of 2020, According to IDC

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — June 9, 2020 — According to the International Data Corporation ( IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Server Tracker, vendor revenue in the worldwide server market declined 6.0% year over year to $18.6 billion during the first quarter of 2020 (1Q20). Worldwide server shipments declined 0.2% year over year to just under 2.6 million units in 1Q20.

In terms of server class, volume server revenue was down 2.1% to $15.1 billion, while midrange server revenue declined 23.0% to just under $2.6 billion, and high-end systems declined by 9.1% to just under $1.0 billion.

"Server market performance was relatively similar to the fourth quarter, albeit a bit more muted, with bright spots including the ODM Direct vendor group realizing solid demand from its core hyperscaler and cloud provider customer set, and continued strength in the non-x86 server space," said Sebastian Lagana, research manager, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC. "That said, the OEM market faced stiff headwinds due to a combination of slowing enterprise demand for x86 servers and supply chain constraints, both driven largely by macroeconomic impacts."

The number one position in the worldwide server market in 1Q20 belonged to Dell Technologies with a revenue share of 18.7%. HPE/New H3C Group took the second position at 15.5%, followed by Inspur/Inspur Power Systems at 7.1%.
