​Region posts highest vendor server revenue as HP maintains market share

From a regional standpoint, Asia/Pacific posted the highest vendor revenue growth at 25.4 percent.

Worldwide server shipments grew 9.2 percent from the third quarter of 2014, while vendor revenue increased 7.5 percent year over year.

“The third quarter of 2015 produced growth on a global level with mixed results by region,” says Jeffrey Hewitt, Research vice president, Gartner.

“All regions showed growth in both shipments and vendor revenue, except for Eastern Europe, Japan and Latin America, which posted revenue declines of 5.8 percent, 11.7 percent and 24.2 percent, respectively, for the period.

“Currency exchange rates are one of the main reasons for the disparity in regional server market performance.”

From a regional standpoint, Asia/Pacific grew the most in shipments, with a 23.8 percent increase - the region also posted the highest vendor revenue growth at 25.4 percent for the period.

HP continued to lead the worldwide server market based on revenue, posting just over $3.7 billion in server vendor revenue for a total market share of 27.3 percent for the third quarter of 2015.

All of the top five global vendors had revenue increases for the third quarter of 2015, except for IBM with a decline of 42.8 percent.

IBM’s decline is due primarily to its sale of its x86 server business to Lenovo and beyond that, IBM’s server revenue fell 3.1 percent for the RISC segment, but grew 15 percent for mainframes to post a 5.1 percent total growth in the third quarter for the server businesses that it retained.

In server shipments, HP remained the worldwide leader in the third quarter of 2015 with a year-over-year shipment increase of 7.7 percent.

HP's worldwide server shipment market share was 22.2 percent, virtually the same share as in the third quarter of 2014.

All of the top five vendors in server shipments worldwide produced shipment increases in the third quarter of 2015, with Lenovo recording the largest growth of 183.2 percent.

“x86 servers managed to produce an increase with growth of 9.2 percent in shipments and 9.7 percent in revenue year over year,” Hewitt adds.

“RISC/Itanium Unix server revenue declined 11.5 percent in the third quarter, while shipments grew 1.1 percent. The 'other' CPU category, which is primarily mainframes, showed an increase of 3.5 percent in terms of revenue.”
