The worldwide server market continued to grow in the fourth quarter of 2019 as revenue
increased 5.1 per cent and shipments grew 11.7 per cent year over year, according to Gartner, Inc.

In all of 2019, worldwide server shipments declined 3.1 per cent and server revenue declined 2.5 per cent compared with full-year 2018, the research firm said.

“The market returned to growth with a very strong fourth quarter result, largely driven by a return of demand from hyper scalers,” said Adrian OConnell, senior research director at Gartner, said in a statement.

“However, the outlook for the worldwide server market in 2020 is subject to great uncertainty. The impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is expected to temper forecast growth. Although demand from the hyperscale segment is expected to continue through the first half of the year, other
buying organisations’ reactions will vary,” he said.
