Worldwide Server Revenue Hits $18.6 Billion In Q1 2020

Dell Technologies widened its worldwide server market share leadership gap over Hewlett Packard Enterprise in the first quarter of 2020, according to new data by IDC.

Global server market revenue reached $18.6 billion during the first quarter, representing a decline of 6 percent compared to $19.8 billion in sales in the first quarter of 2019. Worldwide server shipments remained basically flat year over year with just under 2.6 million servers shipped during the first three months of 2020.

"Server market performance was relatively similar to the fourth quarter, albeit a bit more muted, with bright spots including the ODM Direct vendor group realizing solid demand from its core hyperscaler and cloud provider customer set, and continued strength in the non-x86 server space," said Sebastian Lagana, research manager for Infrastructure Platforms and Technologies at IDC in a statement.

In terms of server class revenue year over year, high-end server systems sales declined 9 percent to roughly $1 billion, midrange servers fell 23 percent to just under $2.6 billion and volume server revenue was down 2 percent to $15.1 billion. Research firm IDC declares a statistical tie when there is a difference of one percent or less in share of revenues or shipments among vendors. In the first quarter, IBM and Lenovo are within one percent share of each other, creating a tie for fourth place.

Here are the top five worldwide server market share leaders.
