report excerpt

Robust economy and demand combine to drive strong workstation growth in Q1’18

Buoyed by both consistent demand from its professional customer base and thriving macro-economic conditions, the workstation market posted solid growth in the first quarter of 2018. Year-over-year, the quarter saw 9.0% gains in unit volume and an even healthier (estimated) 13% increase in revenue, thanks to modestly higher ASPs. Sequentially, the quarter’s volume dipped 7.1%, but that's less of a decline than Q1's typical, historical slide (or at least comparable).

A continued string of bullish results provide more evidence of the different characteristics of the workstation market leading to the contrast in the broader PC-based marketplace. Where mainstream PC buyers are increasingly reaching “good enough” levels of computing with current PCs or alternative devices, lengthening replacement cycles, buyers of workstations continue to value generation-to-generation incremental improvements in features and improvements, with expectations of increasing productivity. 

Among top-tier vendors, Dell and HP ticked up slightly to 41.6% and 39.6%, respectively, with Lenovo taking a step back from 17.6% to 16.6%. 


  • The Workstation report series consists of four quarterly market bulletins covering both workstations and professional graphics each around 40 to 50 pages and timed to highlight the previous quarter’s (and year’s) results in the workstation and professional graphics hardware markets. Each quarterly comes with a companion XLS file, with a comprehensive array of tables and figures that go into more detail than the basic text of the bulletin. The market quarterlies are released around eight weeks after the close of the previous quarter.
  • The service also includes two semi-annual revisions of the JPR Workstation Report, 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.
