When viewing the EMEA market by product, the biggest decline was seen in custom rack optimized server units and revenues, which decreased 38.1% and 39.9% respectively. Although relatively unchanged YoY, standard rack optimized servers recorded the highest overall shipment numbers (294,000), while large system servers saw the highest YoY shipment increase of 21.9% to 1,706 units. In terms of vendors, with 33.9% market share HPE remained at the top of the Western European server market, while second place Dell increased market share year on year from 16.9% to 17.8% in 4Q16.

Finland, Ireland, and the Netherlands were the worst performers in the fourth quarter, with YoY revenue declines between 25% to 35% as both pressure from ODMs and slowed purchasing cycles from major service providers continue to create a turbulent market environment. With 20.5% YoY revenue growth Italy outperformed its neighbors, while Switzerland saw an increase of 30.3% in shipments due to some large investments in the high performance computing market, such as the expansion of the Swiss National Supercomputing Centre.
