Dataquest has been looking at the Japanese workstation market, and reckons that the 1985 market of just 1,800 worth $108m, grew to 4,500 worth $231m in 1986, and that in the five years to 1991 will grow again to 33,000 machines worth $870m for a growth rate of 50% by number, 30% by value; despite increasing competition, the demand for CAD/CAM and workstations for scientific calculation will grow, as will demand for computers running expert decision support systems; foreign manufacturers led by DEC, Sun Microsystems and Apollo Computer are expected to hold 85% market share within two to three years, but competition from Hitachi and NEC – and 10 MIPS workstations are just around the corner.
