This IDC study discusses how we expect to see single-digit growth in the workstation market in 2017. The long-term forecast for the worldwide workstation market is favorable, but overall growth rates will be low over the five-year forecast period ending in 2021. There will be different growth rates for different form factors. IDC expects the growth rate for mobile workstations to be greater than that for desktop workstations. In addition, IDC expects the average selling price to remain higher for mobile workstations than that for desktop workstations. Areas of opportunity can be found by drilling down into targeted attributes including mobile screen size and the type of Intel processor being used. Vendors should also look at areas of opportunity in applications. While engineering applications control over 60% of the workstation market, they can still increase. At the same time, with the performance of workstations increasing, more can be accomplished on a workstation in the digital content creation (DCC) area.There are some economic and political concerns mentioned in the beginning of this document. 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 drop in oil prices will hurt certain countries and help others. Russia is experiencing currency issues 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. Built into the present forecast is an economic slowdown that will impact China in 2018 and roll over into other geographic markets in 2019."IDC sees continued single-digit growth over the five-year forecast period. Mobile workstations will grow at a faster rate than desktop workstations, but desktop workstations will continue to hold their ground, although growing at a slower rate. With increased mobile workstation performance, work can now be done in the field in real time as opposed to back in the office on a tower workstation. This results in increased worker performance and lowers overall project costs," said Lloyd Cohen, research director, Computing Platforms, at IDC. "The market outlook for workstations remains favorable; the challenge for vendors is to educate the IT manager of the benefits of a workstation over a PC without increasing the IT budget."
