According to a report released recently by IDC, HP has continued to show its strength as a market leader by capturing 27% of the worldwide workstation market for units shipped in the third quarter of 2003. While recording substantial gains in both the US and Western Europe, Christoph Schell general manager, for the personal systems group, HP Middle East, believes the company’s performance in the gulf region has also shown good signs of growth, through the release of specific models. “In the Middle East, we continue to capture market share in the workstations space,” says Schell. “HP recognised the most growth within the Intel Pentium 4 and Xeon based personal workstation segment [this year] by offering customers products, such as the HP Workstation xw4100, that provide innovative design capabilities at an affordable price.” HP has increased units shipped across its entire workstation line over 2003, including the midrange HP Workstation xw6000 and high-performance HP Workstation xw8000, which provide customers an expandable, dual-processor system with enhanced visualisation performance. In the United States HP’s personal workstation segment, grew twice the rate of the overall market sequentially by increasing17.5%. HP recognised year-over-year growth in the same market with an increase of 24%, leading all other workstation vendors ranked by IDC. In Western Europe, HP continues to be the number one workstation provider with sequential growth of 24%.
