Global server shipments will grow 8.5% to reach 13.73 million units, driven by the needs to store and process enormous amounts of data in the age of 5G, IoT and AI. According to this latest Special Report on the global server industry, server shipments worldwide will grow at a CAGR of 6.5% during the period 2017-2022, with growth mainly driven by large-scale data centers and the China market.

An increasing number of enterprises are making use of cloud servers instead of building their dedicated server infrastructure to save up-front investment and operating costs. This will spur growth in server demand by cloud service providers including Amazon, Microsoft and Google, who are now making more purchases directly from Taiwan-based white-box or brand vendors, putting pressure on the traditional server brands Dell and HP, who are estimated to see only 2% to 3% shipment growth in 2017, according to this report on the global server industry.

Taiwan's server suppliers have been playing a key role in the server market. Taiwan's server industry has been transitioning from simply making motherboards to providing downstream complete server systems. Having accumulated R&D capabilities during the transition, Taiwan-based server manufacturers will keep advancing toward the development of software integration and total solutions to enhance their technological edge. Taiwan-based manufacturers' share of global server shipments will remain above 90% through 2022.

Of the major suppliers, the top-2, Inventec and Wistron (including Wiwynn) have been neck and neck in terms of shipment volume, each shipping an estimated volume of 2.6 million servers in 2017 and their shipments will both grow in 2018, with Inventec taking a narrow lead.

This Special Report on the server industry offers an analysis and shipment forecasts for 2018, as well as market outlook till 2022.
