This report looks at the European approach to developing both exascale computers and an indigenous, self-sufficient HPC supply chain in Europe. In recent years the EU and its Member States, along with countries including China, Japan, and the United States, have increasingly recognized the strategic importance of investing more heavily in supercomputing to accelerate scientific and industrial innovation.
Throughout the year, Hyperion Research uses our surveys to ask buyers about near-term expectations for their spending on HPC. We ask whether, in the next quarter, they expect the amount they spend to increase, decrease or stay the same. If they expect spending to go up or down in the next quarter, we ask by what percentage. The questions and resulting data are not limited to servers but also include anticipated spending on cloud usage and on desktop computers. We then use this data collected over multiple quarters, along with historical revenue patterns and other sources, to help us generate our HPC market forecasts.

By most objective measures, the United States is the leader in AI capability, both in its AI technology and its application. Whether looking at R&D spending, research capability, ecosystem support, or commercial deployment, the US is at the top or near the top of its global competition. That strength is derived largely from successes in the US private sector. In particular, computer companies in Silicon Valley and elsewhere have been at the forefront in developing new AI hardware and software technologies. A receptive user environment in areas such as web services, financial services, healthcare, and scientific research, among others, has created a virtuous dynamic between supply and demand for AI technologies and products. As a result, the depth and breadth of AI capability in the US is such that the country is well positioned to maintain its lead position in the near-term.
