Workstation market tempers growth in Q1’22, with more moderation likely in the offing

Posted: By Alex Herrera 06.13.22

As part of its ongoing research on the workstation market, Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has released its JPR Workstation Report Market Quarterly for Q1’22.

Q1’22 workstation market results appear to finally show the beginning of the end for the market’s period of pandemic-fueled, overly exuberant sales. With a first-quarter year-over-year (YoY) growth rate of 24%, the market still ran hotter than long-term indicators would justify. Still, that figure is the lowest since Q4’20 and solid evidence of the eventual, expected moderation in unit volume.

The mobile workstation’s YoY growth rate slowed significantly in the first quarter, while the fixed/deskbound workstation’s growth rate continued its rebound, the combination continuing to show a gradual shift in platforms. “Q1’22 marked the first quarter since Q3’19 that the fixed YoY growth rate exceeded that of mobiles,” JPR Workstation Report author Alex Herrera explains, “We’d been waiting to see a rebound in fixed workstations as the pandemic receded and workers began returning to offices. Though that return has had its fits and starts, Q1’22’s shipment mix would appear to reflect that trend.”

Providing the most comprehensive look at the workstation market available, the JPR Workstation Report Market Quarterly for Q1'22 delves into breadth and depth across all slices of the workstation and professional GPU markets, including:

  • Complete breakdown of traditional workstation market by units, revenue, platforms, key components, verticals, geography, and vendors
  • Workstation market forecast
  • Complete breakdown of workstation GPU market by units and revenue, across product classes (including integrated graphics) and vendors


In addition to four quarterly reports focused on market results, a subscription to the JPR Workstation Report includes two revisions of the JPR Workstation Report Semi-Annual, a complete reference manual on the workstation and professional graphics businesses. Anything you want to know about the markets, technologies and industry players can be found in this all-inclusive report.
