This IDC study presents an overview of IDC's forecast for the technical computing server market for 2013-2018 (2014-2018 data is forecast). 2010, 2011, and 2012 were strong recovery years for the HPC technical computing market, with 10%, 8%, and 8% year-over-year growth rates, respectively. According to the data collected in IDC's Worldwide High-Performance Technical Server QView, factory revenue for the HPC technical server market declined 7.2% to $10.3 billion for the full year 2013, down from a record $11.1 billion in 2012. IDC had predicted the decline from the prior year when several extremely large supercomputer sales propelled the high-end supercomputer segment of the market to new heights.

According to Earl Joseph, IDC HPC program vice president, "We are now forecasting a 7.4% CAGR for the HPC market from 2013 to 2018, and we expect the HPC server market to exceed $14.7 billion by 2018."
