Steady growth for workstation market – JPR releases Q4’14 WS study

Robert Dow

Worldwide, the industry shipped approximately 1.03 million workstations in Q4’14, equating to a within-cyclical-norms 1.4% sequential growth. The Q4 saw the first significant volume of many new deskside WSs built on Intel’s Haswell-E processor and Grantley platform, an event that helped bolster results. Market shares for the big three OEMs were generally stable, with the only notable exception being another uptick in Lenovo’s share. Lenovo posted its highest-ever 13.6% share in Q4’14, up from 12.0% the quarter prior. HP nudged forward to 41.0%, while Dell took a step back to 32.5%. Read more on our WS report page.
