report excerpt

The workstation market experienced another solid quarter in Q4'17, shining brightly in a few respects. First, volume hit another record high of 1.30 million, reflecting YoY growth of 5.4% (and a within-the-norm sequential gain of 3.8%). Second, ASPs showed surprising strength, tipping up modestly to let revenue not only hit a record of  $2.47 billion but show a more robust 6.2% YoY growth. Third — and admittedly a less exciting observation — the growth numbers sit in a range that this analyst would think a sweet spot. It's robust compared to GDP and certainly compared to the broader PC market, but it's not overly hot to indicate an unsustainable burst like we've seen in the past. Solid but sensible growth in Q4'17 ... not a bad thing!

The mobile workstation's share of the overall market spiked to 34.5% in Q4’17. Not only is that the highest level it’s ever hit, but it interrupted three straight quarters of moderating share. Despite the progress it’s made, however, when it comes to volume the mobile workstation still pales in comparison to the deskside workstation.


  • 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.
