EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This Intersect360 Research report presents the 2018 total market model and five-year forecast for the overall High Performance Computing (HPC) market, segmented into geographic regions: North America (U.S. and Canada), EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa), Asia-Pacific, and Latin America. The forecast horizon is from 2019 through 2023, with compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) using 2018 as a base.

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 reports available in this series include the following segmentations:

  • Products and Services: servers, storage, networks, software, service, cloud, other
  • Economic sectors:industry, government, academia
  • Vertical markets:academia, national security, national research labs, national agencies, state or local governments, bio sciences, chemical engineering, consumer product manufacturing, electronics, energy, financial services, large product manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail, transportation, other
  • Regions (this report):North America, EMEA, Asia-Pacific, Latin America
  • Server class (HPC server revenue): entry-level, midrange, high-end, supercomputer
  • Cloud categories (HPC cloud revenue):raw cycles, cloud storage, application hosting (SaaS), infrastructure hosting (IaaS, PaaS), other
  • Software categories (HPC software revenue):operating environments, developer tools, middleware, storage software, transfer costs, application software, other
  • Services categories (HPC services revenue):maintenance and repair, system engineering, system integration, training, programming services, other
  • HPC server market shares(current year only, not forecast)
  • HPC storage market shares(current year only, not forecast)

Total HPC market revenue was $36.1 billion in 2018, growing 3.2% over 2017. This was the ninth consecutive year of growth for the HPC market. 2018 saw a continuation of regional trends from previous years, which we expect to continue through the forecast period. Asia-Pacific continues to have the highest growth rate of the three major regions, driven by increasing investment in China. Latin America has the highest overall growth rate in 2018 and the 2019 to 2023 forecast, albeit from a small base.
