‘As long as demand for richly configured servers supports further average selling price growth, the market will offset slight declines in unit volume,’ says Sebastian Lagana, research manager, Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC.

Q1 Market Share: 23%

Global server revenue for the original design manufacturing (ODMs) group of vendors hit $4.5 billion in the first quarter 2019, down 1 percent from the $4.6 billion the group generated during the same quarter one year ago. The relatively flat sales quarter made market share for ODMs drop from 24.2 percent to 23 percent year over year.

“Demand from both enterprise buyers and hyperscale companies purchasing through ODMs was less voracious than in previous quarters; coupled with a difficult compare period from a year ago, this impacted the pace of market growth during the first quarter," said Lagana. "This was most evident in declining unit shipments during the quarter.”

The group of original design manufactures shipped a total of 651,400 server units in the first quarter, down 5.7 percent year over year. ODMs shipped approximately 40,000 less servers in first quarter 2019 compared to the same quarter one year ago.
