The global data centre CPU market’s revenue registered a 4.4% YoY decline in 2022 as macroeconomic headwinds, slowing demand and increased energy costs impacted the sales during the year, according to the latest research from Counterpoint.

In the vendor category of the global data centre CPU market, Intel remained the market leader with a 71% share, although dropped 16% YoY in 2022. The market share declined primarily due to delays in next-generation products and weakness in enterprise spending due to macroeconomic conditions.

AMD came second with about 20% market share primarily driven by increased adoption of its EPYC processor Milan. It registered a 62% YoY growth while AWS almost doubled its growth on the back of its in-house ARM-based chip Graviton, now in its third generation.

Ampere Computing started to gain more traction in 2022 with its expansion from traditional cloud providers to enterprises by having its CPU in off-the-shelf servers from OEMs.
