The workstation market in Q4’18 sets another record on bullish results

The market is thriving, setting yet another quarterly record in Q4’18. As noted last quarter, the primary driving forces behind the continued robust performance are clear. Capex budgets are robust, while demand for higher performance, which buyers expect to translate directly to higher productivity, has no foreseeable end. Year-over-year, the quarter saw 14.3% gains in unit volume year-over-year (6.3% sequentially), on the heels of the previous quarters’ 11.4% and 14.9%. 

It’s worth standing back a bit to gain perspective of the magnitude of the workstation market’s recent expansion. In only three years’ time, unit volume has grown 45%, an impressive figure considering that the market is a relatively mature one and taking into account the stagnant-to-contracting trend occurring in the broader PC market over the same time. 

The triumvirate of Dell, HP, and Lenovo managed to account for the lion’s share of units, with Lenovo, in particular, making strides of late.
