Intel’s (NASDAQ: INTC) total revenue has grown from $62.8 billion in 2017 to $71.9 billion in 2019, largely driven by a $4.4 billion growth in data center revenue, and is expected to rise further to $75.8 billion by 2021. Total revenue is expected to rise by around $3.9 billion over the next 2 years, driven by even growth across all segments.
We expect total revenue to rise to $75.8 billion by 2021, on the back of stronger demand for IoT (Internet of Things) systems, and Intel’s new 10nm chips.
The $3.9 billion growth in total revenue is expected to be driven by roughly equal growth in all segments, with Internet of Things expected to see the highest percentage growth (~25%).

Takeaway:

  • Intel’s Client Computing division, which sells processors and platform products, is expected to contribute $37.9 billion to total revenue in 2020, making up 51% of Intel’s $74.2 billion revenue estimate.
  • The Client Computing division, is more than 1.5x larger than the Data Center division, which is expected to bring in $24 billion in 2020, making up 32% of the total revenue estimate.
  • Intel’s Data Center division will bring in an additional $5.3 billion, which is 41% of the $13 billion in total revenue that the company is expected to add between 2017 and 2021.
  • This strong expected revenue growth has been key to Intel’s ~45% price appreciation over the past year, further helped by growing margins and a steady drop in shares outstanding.
