- Kingston Leads All Competitors with 23 Percent Market Share
- Rankings Recently Released by Analyst Firm DRAMeXchange, a Division of TrendForce
Sunbury on Thames, UK - October 30th, 2018 – Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, today that announced DRAMeXchange, a division of TrendForce, has named Kingston as the number one supplier of SSDs in the channel for all of 2017. According to DRAMeXchange, Kingston accounted for 23 percent of the 55 million units shipped last year. DRAMeXchange is one of five research divisions of TrendForce and has conducted thorough and methodical research in both the NAND and DRAM industries since its creation in 2000.
The findings by DRAMeXchange means Kingston’s staggering output places the company well ahead of its competitors in a fast-growing industry. The results reinforce Kingston as the clear leader in SSD production, with the second-place supplier accounting for only eight percent of the total channel market. As a category, third-party (non-semiconductor) SSD makers accounted for 60 percent of the total number of SSDs shipped in 2017. Kingston’s position with SSDs is remarkably similar to its success in the DRAM market, where it has been the largest third-party memory module supplier for well over a decade.
“It’s an honour to achieve this top ranking as the Kingston difference has always been how easy we are to work with, the level of sales support we provide, and the access customers and partners have to our product experts and engineers,” said Tony Hollingsbee, SSD Business Manager for the EMEA region, Kingston. “For over 30 years, Kingston’s focus has been with our customers and channel partners worldwide. Together, the terrific relationship has helped our SSD business grow rapidly since we shipped our first drive in 2009. We share this success with them.”
