Government, Professional Services Among Forerunners For Server Market In India: IDC

According to IDC’s Server Tracker for Q1 2013, various vendors including HP, IBM, Fujitsu and HCL have a strong push and presence in the Indian server marketplace. This strong presence, as reflected by the findings of the tracker, is due to strong server unit shipments and the revenue generated through channel and direct sales across India.

Janmaijai Dhyani, Server Market Analyst commented, "The overall Server Market in India witnessed a growth of 10 percent year on year, with x86 being a key contributor of growth in terms of units in the market. In contrast, the Non-x86 market saw a decline of 35 percent. Large number of deals continuingly being driven by various government projects and large corporate investments have contributed to the growth of this sector.”

Despite the decline in the overall Non-x86 market, HP saw growth in their Non-x86 server market year on year. This was primarily because server refresh contracts that were being kept on hold last year, were seen through. IDC observed this pattern in various key verticals including Banking, Manufacturing and Communications and Media.

In India, IBM continued to lead the x86 market in Q1 2013 with revenue share of 31.1 percent, followed by HP with a share of 29.2 percent and Dell with a share of 18.2 percent.

Dhyani added, “Some large HPC deals were key contributors to IBM’s growth in Q1, 2013."

According to Mr. Venu Reddy, Research Director, "Special projects in the Government space continue to be a key staple in the server market space, this momentum in the special projects in Government and BFSI verticals have resulted in sequential growth in Q1 2013. However, the run-rate demand from enterprises will stay affected by macro-economic pressures, which remains weak."

IDC's server tracker gives visibility to sales by major vendors, by installation and by vertical, across all city/regions. Apart from tracking unit shipments tracked through channel, the tracker also provides insights into price bands, horizontal sentiment and insights collected through primary research conducted across the country every quarter.
