"The worldwide server market saw a sharp downturn in 2009, as the economic downturn pushed revenue down by double digits compared with CY08 and unit shipments dipped below the 8-million-unit record set in 2008," said Jean S. Bozman, research vice president, IDC Enterprise Platforms Group. "IDC believes that the server market will see single-digit growth and overall stabilization of demand. And yet, there will be a new "normal" whose shape has not yet been seen. Pockets of faster growth may emerge in some areas of Asia/Pacific in 2010, but most regions will see moderate improvements in revenue and unit shipments compared with 2009."
