This IDC study provides historical data (2017–2021) and forecast data (2022–2026) for the worldwide server market. The forecast and historical data illustrate IT buyer consumption of server hardware segmented by product, central processing unit (CPU) type, server class, socket capability, and primary operating system (OS). For each of these categories, IDC has estimated value (end-user spending) and units.

"The server market continued to show resilience and healthy demand through the first half of the year," said Kuba Stolarski, research vice president for IDC's Computing Platforms and Cloud Infrastructure research. "As the year winds to a close, concerns about macroeconomic headwinds are putting a bit of a damper on the near-term outlook. However, order backlogs are still way above historical levels and the market is holding fast. Short of a major recession and job losses, IDC believes the outlook for 2023 is still positive."
