Reading time ( words)

The growth at the end of 2017 continued for the worldwide server market in the first quarter of 2018 as worldwide server revenue increased 33.4% and shipments grew 17.3% year over year, according to Gartner, Inc.

"The server market was driven by increases in spending by hyperscale as well as enterprise and midsize data centers. Enterprises and midsize businesses are in the process of investing in their on-premises and colocation infrastructure to support server replacements and growth requirements even as they continue to invest in public cloud solutions," said Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice president at Gartner. "Additionally, when it came to server average selling prices (ASP) increases for the quarter, one driver was the fact that DRAM prices increased due to constrained supplies."

Regional results were mixed. North America and Asia/Pacific experienced particularly strong growth double-digit growth in revenue (34% and 47.8%, respectively). In terms of shipments, North America grew 24.3% and Asia/Pacific grew 21.9%. EMEA posted strong yearly revenue growth of 32.1% while shipments increased 2.7%. Japan experienced a decline in both shipments and revenue (-5.0% and -7.3%, respectively). Latin America experienced a decline in shipments (-1.8%), but growth in revenue (19.2%).

Dell EMC experienced 51.4 growth in the worldwide server market based on revenue in the first quarter of 2018. This growth helped widen the gap a bit between Dell EMC and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) as Dell EMC ended the quarter in the No. 1 spot with 21.5% market share, followed closely by HPE with 19.9% of the market. Inspur Electronics experienced the strongest growth in the first quarter of 2018 with 120.4% growth.

In server shipments, Dell EMC maintained the No. 1 position in the first quarter of 2018 with 18.2% market share. Despite a decline of 8.5% in server shipments, HPE secured the second spot with 13.1% of the market.

The x86 server market increased in revenue by 35.7%, and shipments were up 17.5% in the first quarter of 2018. The RISC/Itanium UNIX market continued to struggle with shipments down 52.8%, while revenue declined 46.7%.
