The Workstation Market Finds Its Groove in Q3'12, Reports Jon Peddie Research
TIBURON, Calif. - (BUSINESS WIRE) - The clouds appear to be clearing. Workstation vendors had to be relieved by third quarter market results, as the industry found some sorely-needed footing, yielding some positive - and very welcome - gains. Jon Peddie Research has announced the release of the JPR Workstation Report market quarterly for Q3'12, part of the firm's industry-leading workstation research service.
Going back to fourth quarter of 2011, the workstation market had hit some roadblocks, suffering three consecutive down quarters. But that string was mercifully broken in the third quarter of this year. Alex Herrera, JPR Senior Analyst and JPR Workstation Report author, reports that workstation vendors shipped about 932 thousand branded workstations, representing an increase of 5.5% over Q2'12. Especially considering that third quarter shipments often take a dip after Q2, that otherwise modest 5.5% figure is a sight for sore OEMs' eyes.
