Addison Snell Christopher Willard Ph.D. Worldwide HPC 2019 Total Market Model and 2020–2024 Forecast: Vertical Markets

This Intersect360 Research report presents the 2019 total market model and five-year forecast for the overall High Performance Computing (HPC) market, segmented into vertical markets across industry, government, and academia. The forecast horizon is from 2020 through 2024, with compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) using 2019 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
  • 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: 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 reached $39.0 billion in 2019, growing 8.2% over 2018. This was the tenth consecutive year of growth for the HPC market. The 8.2% growth slightly exceeded the 7.2% growth Intersect360 Research had forecasted for the year. Reversing the trend from the past six years, government spending took the lead in growth in 2019 and will continue to lead overall through the five-year forecast.
