High demand from commercial customers to boost growth in global supercomputer market


Technavio has published a new market research report on the global supercomputer market from 2018-2022. Graphic: Business Wire.
23 Feb 2018 London - Technavio's latest market research report on the global supercomputer market provides an analysis of the most important trends expected to impact the market outlook from 2018-2022. Technavio defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

According to Technavio analysts, the global supercomputer market will grow at a CAGR of around 9% during the forecast period. The adoption of supercomputing systems by commercial customers is a major factor driving the market's growth.

Business houses, including automakers, chemical manufacturers, drug companies, aircraft manufacturers, oil companies, and energy producers, are increasingly looking to purchase such systems, thus increasing the scope of the global supercomputer market.

In this report, Technavio highlights the growing use of the Cloud as one of the key emerging trends driving the global supercomputer market:

1. Growing use of the Cloud

Supercomputing centres are increasingly using the Cloud to manage workloads. At present, parallel applications that do not require very specific architecture are being run using the Cloud. However, more sophisticated applications will likely be run on the Cloud as time progresses. In keeping with this development, Cray struck a partnership with Microsoft. The partnership allows Cray access to Microsoft's Azure customer base, with the potential to provide better growth for the company. As of 2017, Cray is offering dedicated Cray XC and CS-Storm supercomputers inside the Azure platform, as a part of the partnership, allowing customers to run their HPC and AI applications alongside their other Cloud workloads.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for embedded systems research, "The automotive, financial services, and life sciences sectors are expected to show an increased interest in using cloud services for supercomputers. Cray systems will be available for customer-specific provisioning in select Microsoft Azure data centres. Cray will contract directly with customers to provide support and maintenance. As supercomputer vendors look at alternatives to broaden their market reach, such collaborations are likely to increase in the market."

2. Global supercomputer market segmentation

This market research report segments the global supercomputer market by end-user (government entities, scientific research and academic institutions, and commercial industries) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA). Additionally, the report also provides an analysis of the market's growth based on the type of OS and processors.

In 2017, government entities led the market with a share of more than 45%. This segment receives investments from government organisations that use supercomputers for scientific research and maintaining national security. Government entities have sufficient funds available to develop or procure the fastest and biggest supercomputers.

APAC accounted for the largest installed base of supercomputers in 2017, accounting for a share of close to 46%. Chinese industries, backed by government funding, have an aggressive strategy to build their own supercomputing systems based on internally developed software and hardware components. Japanese industries, one-time market leaders, have their own plans to develop the world's first exascale supercomputer in collaboration with Fujitsu.
