Yet Another Impressive Quarter of YoY Growth for Workstations in Q2’19

FEATURED COMPANIES

  • AMD
  • Apple
  • Dell
  • Fujitsu
  • HP
  • Lenovo
  • MORE

The workstation market saw another record quarter in Q2’19, with the industry shipping around 1.6 million units (including DHL and Others). Furthermore, the quarter saw another impressive YoY growth mark, at 18.1% dramatically outshining the performance of GDP and broader PC markets. Prices remain healthy (at least cyclically so), allowing revenue to incur similar gains (an estimated 19.6%).

The triumvirate of Dell, HP, and Lenovo managed to account for the lion’s share of units, with Lenovo, in particular, making strides of late.

Providing the most comprehensive look at the workstation market available, the Workstation Report Market Quarterly  (Q2 2019) delves into breadth and depth across all slices of the workstation and professional GPU markets, including:

  • Complete breakdown of traditional workstation market by units and revenue, and across product classes (mobile/entry/mid/high), platforms (mobile/entry/mid/high), geography and vendors
  • Workstation market forecast
  • A complete breakdown of the workstation GPU market by units and revenue, across product classes and vendors
  • Breakdown of the workstation market by vertical
  • Analysis and sizing of the impact of Apple platforms versus Windows/Linux workstations
  • Analysis and sizing of the impact of emerging workstation virtualization (in its multiple forms)
  • Analysis and sizing the impact of Intel's CPU-integrated graphics
