According to TrendForce’s full-year channel channel solid-state drive report for 2020, Kingston Digital (Inc.) has become the largest supplier.According to TrendForce data, Kingston will account for 27% of the 111.5 million units shipped in 2020.
With the emergence of the COVID-19 epidemic in 2020, TrendForce reported that the annual shipments of channel solid-state drives fell by 15% year-on-year, and severe delays in manufacturing and logistics led to a sudden drop in orders.
However, the survey results show that through Kingston’s global sourcing component strategy, the company is far ahead of its competitors in consideration of the global pandemic and imminent chip shortages. The result has strengthened Kingston’s position as the clear leader in the production of solid-state drives, as the second-ranked supplier only accounts for 8% of the entire channel market. As a category, third-party suppliers (non-semiconductor) SSD manufacturers accounted for 35% of total shipments in 2020.
Kingston Technology’s presence in the market is widely benefited from its strong relationships with global customers and channel partners. With the continuing health crisis sweeping the world and companies moving quickly to adapt to the situation, Kingston continues to provide top-level sales support, and provides in-house product experts and engineers, who embodies the “Kingston is with you” work attitude, thus successfully achieving Reliability and support for customers for thirty years.
