全球伺服器市場成長率，由於全球經濟的復甦的動向，預計2016年達到5％前後的水準。伺服器市場長期性的前景依然樂觀，不過，今後5年的市場成長率預計僅限於低水準。除了各外型尺寸的預期成長率不相同，由於經濟、政治不安，今後的市場方向性也有可能不同。預期x86為基礎的超大型伺服器、基礎設施進一步擴大，另一方面反映虛擬化、系統整合的動向，中型伺服器企業用需求也將成長。還有由於資料中心的建設工程有所進展，高密度伺服器 (高集積伺服器) 市場也認為將大幅成長。
This IDC study discusses how the server market performed in 2015 overall and by vendor on a regional basis. We expect to see mid-single-digit growth in 2016 as the worldwide economy is anticipated to improve. The long-term forecast for the worldwide server market is favorable, but overall growth rates will be low over the five-year forecast period ending in 2020. There will be different growth rates for different form factors. Areas of opportunity can be found by drilling down into targeted segments.There are some economic and political concerns that influenced vendor performance in 2015. The economic instability of several of the European countries may have tempered a bit but should not be dismissed. Unemployment is expected to remain high in some geographic areas. The dramatic drop in oil prices will hurt certain countries and help other countries. Russia is presently in a freefall with the value of the ruble, and this may affect IT expenditures in the short run. The United States may benefit with the lowering of the price of oil, but at the same time, jobs in the oil industry are being eliminated. All negative economic events in major geographic regions have a tendency to ripple throughout the whole world, which could end up hindering business investment and, as a result, slowing down IT spending growth."The volume segment was aided by a continued expansion of x86-based hyperscale server infrastructures while midrange systems were helped by enterprise investment in scalable systems for virtualization and consolidation. Datacenter buildout continues, and the main beneficiary is the density-optimized segment, where growth easily outpaced the overall server market," said Lloyd Cohen, research director, Platform Solutions at IDC.
