Hyperion Research reports HPC server market beats forecast for full-year 2018


8 Apr 2019 St. Paul - Worldwide factory revenue for the high-performance computing (HPC) technical server market jumped for the full-year 2018 by 15.6% over the exceptionally strong 2017 calendar year period, from $11.9 billion to $13.7 billion. The 2018 result was 6.2% higher than Hyperion Research's forecast $12.9 billion figure for the year.

For the fourth quarter of 2018, the market grew by 10.1% to reach $3.7 billion, up from $3.5 billion in the same period of 2017, according to the newly released Hyperion Research Worldwide High-Performance Technical Server QView.

Hyperion Research forecasts that revenue for HPC server systems will grow at a 7.8% CAGR to reach $20.0 billion in 2023.

  • Leading the charge in year-over-year fourth-quarter growth was the Supercomputers segment for HPC systems sold for $500,000 and up. Revenue in this segment climbed 31.0% to $1.6 billion, compared with $1.2 billion in the prior-year fourth quarter, and accounted for 41.9% of fourth-quarter 2018 HPC server revenue.
  • The Divisional segment for systems sold for $250,000 to $499,000 grew by 12.9%, from $587 million in the 2017 fourth quarter to $662 million in the 2018 fourth quarter, accounting for 17.8% of fourth-quarter 2018 revenue.
  • The Departmental segment for systems sold for $100,000 to $249,000 declined by 6.4% in the 2018 fourth quarter to $1.0 billion from the strong 2017 fourth-quarter total of $1.1 billion. The 2018 figure represented 27.0% of fourth-quarter HPC server revenue.
  • Similarly, the Workgroup segment for HPC systems sold for under $100,000 dipped 18.7%, from $607 million in the 2017 quarter to $493 million in fourth-quarter 2018, representing 13.3% of fourth-quarter 2018 HPC server revenue.

"Fourth-quarter and calendar-year 2018 HPC server revenue grew even faster than we forecast, helped by a robust U.S. and global economy", stated Earl Joseph, CEO of Hyperion Research. "We predict continued healthy growth through 2023, with some banner years for the Supercomputers segment as pre-exascale and exascale supercomputers are deployed across the world."

According to Steve Conway, Hyperion Research senior vice president of research, "Fourth-quarter revenue also benefited from HPC's crucial role at the forefront of AI research and from the growing adoption of HPC servers by enterprise data centers to accelerate business operations".

Vendor Highlights for Fourth-Quarter 2018

  • Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Dell EMC remained the global market leaders by capturing, respectively, 34.9% and 22.7% of worldwide HPC server system revenue.
  • Lenovo was the third-place finisher with a 6.8% share.
  • The largest year-over-year fourth-quarter market share gainers were Penguin Computing (58.0%), Fujitsu (32.9%), Sugon (28.0%) and Dell EMC (27.0%).

The Hyperion Research High-Performance Technical Server QView presents the HPC market from various perspectives, including competitive segment, vendor, cluster versus non-cluster, geography, and operating system. It also contains detailed revenue and shipment information by HPC models.
