ket share, while HPE re­mained the only ven­dor who grew its share to 17.8% t dur­ing Q1 2017. In non x86 server mar­ket bank­ing in­dus­try on its own con­trib­uted for 57.3% of the rev­enue, fol­lowed by man­u­fac­tur­ing and pro­fes­sional ser­vices ver­ti­cals.

VEN­DOR PLAY

Go­ing by the mar­ket trends and DQ es­ti­mates, HPE leads the over­all mar­ket with about 40% mar­ket share fol­lowed by Dell, Len­ovo, Acer and oth­ers. Ac­cord­ing to IDC, it says that in India x86 mar­ket, HPE in­creased its mar­ket share from 37.8% in Q4 2016 to 40.3% in Q1 2017 in terms of rev­enue, fol­lowed by Dell with a mar­ket share of 20.5% dur­ing Q1 2017. Though the mar­ket in­creased Y-o-Y in terms of rev­enue most of the ma­jor vendors failed to main­tain their mar­ket share, while ODMs have been suc­cess­ful in grow­ing their mar­ket share from 0.3% in Q1 2016 to 14.5% in Q1 2017 and Cisco in­creased its mar­ket share to 8.9% in Q1 2017, mainly driven by its blade rev­enue.

GLOBAL DY­NAM­ICS

If one looks at server mar­ket trends glob­ally, go­ing by Gart­ner, In the first quar­ter of 2017, world­wide server rev­enue de­clined 4.5% year over year, while ship­ments fell 4.2% from the first quar­ter of 2016.

“The first quar­ter of 2017 showed de­clines on a global level with a slight vari­a­tion in re­sults by re­gion,” said Jef­frey He­witt, re­search vice pres­i­dent at Gart­ner. “Asia/Pa­cific bucked the trend and posted growth while all other re­gions fell. “Al­though pur­chases in the hy­per-scale data cen­ter seg­ment have been in­creas­ing, the en­ter­prise and SMB seg­ments re­main con­strained as end users in these seg­ments ac­com­mo­date their in­creased ap­pli­ca­tion re­quire­ments through vir­tu­al­iza­tion and con­sider cloud al­ter­na­tives,” He­witt said.

Hewlett Packard En­ter­prise (HPE) con­tin­ued to lead in the world­wide server mar­ket based on rev­enue. The com­pany posted just more than $3 bil­lion in rev­enue for a to­tal share of 24.1% for the first quar­ter of 2017. Dell EMC main­tained the # 2 po­si­tion with 19% mar­ket share. Dell EMC was the only ven­dor in the top five to ex­pe­ri­ence growth in the first quar­ter of 2017.

OUT­LOOK

IDC an­a­lysts be­lieve that Dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion ini­tia­tives from Gov­ern­ment to­wards smart cities, skill India, e-records, ed­u­ca­tion, health­care are likely to drive the mar­ket. Also, in­creased bank­ing fo­cus to­wards high com­pute to han­dle the vo­lu­mi­nous trans­ac­tion, an­a­lyt­ics, and CRM ap­pli­ca­tions are vi­tal fac­tors lead­ing to­wards the server mar­ket growth in the com­ing quar­ters. Pro­fes­sional ser­vices in­clud­ing IT, ITeS, third party dat­a­cen­tre and pub­lic cloud ser­vice providers would con­tinue to fuel the server mar­ket growth in India.

The servers mar­ket is also mor­ph­ing to the new chal­lenges posed by the tech­nol­ogy dis­rup­tion and vendors are mak­ing con­certed ef­forts to sus­tain their place in the mar­ket.
