Global Personal Computer & Server Industry Analysis

The  PC industry (segment of the hardware & electronic equipment business) in the Americas represent almost 40% of the overall market, which is highly competitive due to large scale outfits and a diverse market environment.

With consumers and businesses becoming increasingly reliant on eBusiness, the retail industry is processing greater volumes of data, necessitating more complex IT infrastructure, with rising demand for servers in particular. Large-scale data centers have also come to light as a driving force behind the server industry.

Key Server & Personal Computer Market Segments

The world low-end servers market is expected to near 17.5 million units by 2017, according to research from Global Industry Analysts. The market is fuelled by SMB segment demand, and corporate need to update servers following the economic recession. Asia-Pacific is the leading regional market for low-end servers, set to maintain yearly growth in excess of 11% through 2017.

The world enterprise server virtualization industry is being driven by a move to cut server infrastructure costs. The market is increasingly deployed on commodity servers, though with virtualization becoming more complex, the move is not full-scale.

The world high-performance computing server industry's market growth is being fuelled by rising demand for computation systems offering real-time analysis. Cloud companies are increasingly favoring HPC, though the lack of sophisticated software may prove an obstacle to market growth.

Regional PC & Server Market Share

PC peripherals market growth is fuelled by the need to upgrade from obsolete hardware, falling prices, state participation, eBusiness activity and rising levels of disposable income. With a sizeable PC base, the need to replace obsolete peripherals will continue to drive market expansion. Government initiatives including e-governance also continue to fuel peripherals demand. Obstacles to market growth include the grey market and smart handheld devices, which see consumers cut back need for PC peripherals. Market trends include the move some industry players are making into the handheld device sector, consumer preoccupation with the aesthetic aspect of products, and LED display demand. Interest in smart handheld devices has some industry players taking up a share of the tablet PC sector. Consumers are demanding not only specs but smaller, more easily portable products with aesthetic appeal.


PC & Server Industry Leaders

Key players operating in the global PC and server market include Microsoft, Apple, Hewlett-Packard, Oracle, Acer America, Dell, IBM, Advanced Micro Device, Intel, Fujitsu and Cisco Systems.

Server & Personal Computer Market Outlook

The PC industry continues to lose market share to mobile devices and tablet PCs. Companies are faced with a tough challenge to rival more compact products that offer consumers access from any location at any time. Industry players following the market trend to move into these segments benefit from general consumer demand for mobility. Mobile Applications for tablets will be centered around enterprise, professional and consumer markets. Global Industry Analysts predict low-end server demand will be buoyed by IT assets cost efficiency following the economic recession. Other factors fuelling market growth include developed markets demand and replacements of x86 servers.
