Worldwide Server Shipment Grew 9.2 Percent in Q3: Gartner
In the third quarter of 2015, worldwide server shipments grew 9.2 percent from the third quarter of 2014, while vendor revenue increased 7.5 percent year-on-year, a statement by information technology research and advisory company Gartner said on Wednesday.

"The third quarter of 2015 produced growth on a global level with mixed results by region," Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice president at Gartner said.

"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," Hewitt added.

From the 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. The company posted just over $3.7 billion (roughly Rs. 24,664 crores) 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.

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.
