ODM Direct

Market Share: 26.7%

Original design manufacturers (ODMs) accounted for the largest market share for server revenue, although IDC combines all ODMs in terms of server revenue share and total shipments. ODMs design and manufacture servers that are later rebranded by other companies for sale.

The group of ODMs generated $6.3 billion in server revenue in the second quarter, representing a decline in sales of 9 percent year over year. These ODMs captured 26.7 percent share of the total server market in the second quarter, down from 28.5 percent year over year.

“While servers purchased directly from ODMs declined year over year, some past backlog recovery within the hyperscale data center community contributed to a large jump in this segment when compared to the first quarter of this year,” said IDC’s Maguranis.

When combining ODM server vendor shipments, the group shipped a total of just over 1 billion servers, representing a 2.3 percent fall year over year.
