IGEL significantly outperformed the market, which grew by 10% overall, as reported by the IDC Enterprise Client Device Tracker report for 2014. As the only major dedicated thin and zero client manufacturer, IGEL cemented its position in the top three UK hardware providers with a 10% UK market share, behind technology generalists Dell and HP. In addition, IGEL sold 14,000 licenses for its Universal Desktop Converter 2 (UDC2) software thin clients, which is used to convert old PCs, notebooks and thin clients into IGEL-like devices.
