Market Study on Global Workstation Market: Rising demand for 3D Animation software and increasing demand of workstation in wide range of applications

Nov 14,2017 | Electronics, Semiconductors, and ICT

According to a recent market report published by Future Market Insights titled “Workstation Market - Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016–2026,” the global workstation market was valued at US$ 32,256.5 Mn in 2016 and is expected to register a CAGR of 9.8% from 2016 to 2026.

Workstations are increasingly being used in various applications, such as Digital Content Creation, Economic/Finance, Engineering, Scientific, Software Engineering and Other Commercial applications. Increase in the usage of workstations for Digital Content Creation due to an increase in demand for 3D animation software from media & entertainment and construction sectors is being witnessed. Moreover, rise in the usage of workstations for scientific research applications for research study of complex data is gaining traction.

Globally, the Windows workstation segment’s value share contribution to the overall market revenue is significantly higher than the contribution of the Linux and Unix workstation segments. This can be attributed to strong demand for Windows workstation for digital content creation, virtual reality content creation, oil and gas exploration and software engineering industries. The Windows workstation segment is expected to gain 150 BPS by 2026 as compared to that by 2016 end and account for 92.2% value share by 2026.

As per the analysis of all seven regions, including North America, Latin America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, APEJ, Japan and MEA, the Windows segment is projected to account for significantly high revenue share contribution to the global workstation market over the forecast period.

However, the cost of licensing & royalties for patents for workstations is considerably high, which results in longer replacement cycles of workstations in the professional market. SMEs, which are in their developing phase, go for second- hand workstations instead of buying a new model. This is a major factor hindering the overall growth of the workstations market.
