HP, Dell Losing Datacentre Market Grip To China’s Lenovo
Server shipments from top-two vendors HP and Dell are declining, with their joint market share down from 49 percent in 2013 and 43.1pc in 2014 to just 38.1pc in 2015, according to new figures from Taiwan-based Digitimes.
China-based Lenovo’s share is said to have risen to 5.3 percent in 2015 after it acquired IBM’s server business, and its share will rise further to 6.5pc, Digitimes predicts.
Meanwhile, the top four Taiwan-based server makers – Inventec, Foxconn, Wistron and Quanta – continued to see their combined share of shipments from Taiwan drop to 73.8pc in 2015, down from 86.7pc in 2013 and 84.1pc in 2014, Digitimes says. But thanks to new orders from datacentre clients, their combined share is expected to rise to 74.3pc in 2016.
