Industry observers all probably expected a solid bounce in the workstation market eventually, but the questions were just when and how big it would be. Q4 not only showed a more moderated decline YoY than the -15.8% and -23.2% in Q2 and Q3, as expected but surprised to the upside. Ultimately, the quarter not only matched 2019 volume levels but was even able to nudge out the mostly pre-pandemic Q4’19 by 0.7%.
As to why Q4 overperformed, the reasons as in Q2 and Q3 stemmed again from the differences in performances of different platforms and geographies as the pandemic progressed, and to some degree suppliers.
