EXECUTIVE SUMMARY 

This Intersect360 Research report presents the 2016 total market model and five-year forecast for the overall High Performance Computing (HPC) market, segmented into product and services categories, including servers, storage, services, software, networks and other products. The forecast horizon is from 2017 through 2021, with compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) using 2016 as a base.
 
Other Intersect360 Research reports provide forecast segmentations by server class (entry-level, mid-range, high-end, supercomputer), geographic region, economic sector (academia, government, industry), and vertical market, as well as vendor shares for the current year for servers and for storage.
 
Intersect360 Research defines HPC as the use of servers, clusters, and supercomputers—plus associated software, tools, components, storage, and services—for scientific, engineering, or analytical tasks that are particularly intensive in computation, memory usage, or data management. Intersect360 Research separately tracks the hyperscale market, which consists of arbitrarily scalable, web-facing application infrastructure in excess of $1 million of annual spending from a given site.
 
Some of the key findings of this report include:
 
·       The total worldwide HPC market (servers, storage, software, etc.) reached $35.6 billion in 2016, up 3.5% from 2015.
·       Intersect360 Research projects HPC revenue compound annual growth rate to be 5.2% CAGR from 2016 to 2021, reaching $36.9 billion at the end of the forecast period.
·       Servers were the largest component, reaching $10.6 billion (4.0% growth over 2014), although this segment also has slower growth rate than the rest of the market. That is, while servers are the largest component of HPC spending, we forecast this share to continue to decline over the forecast period.
·       Interest in public cloud computing models for HPC applications continues to grow, but it overall remains a small portion of the market, and it will remain a minor component throughout the forecast period.
