Kingston remains Top in DRAM module business

Kingston Technology padded its dominance of the third-party DRAM module business in the 1H/2010, as it used its prodigious buying power during a time of rising module costs to gain share, according to market researcher iSuppli.
Kingston during the first six months of 2010 sold USD 2.6 billion worth of DRAM modules, a 45.6% rise from the second half of 2009. This gave the company a 45.8% share of the global third-party DRAM, up from 39.6% in the second half of 2009. Kingston’s performance massively outperformed the overall DRAM module market, which expanded by 265 during the same period.

The attached table presents iSuppli’s ranking of the world’s Top 5 third-party DRAM module manufacturers during the first six months of 2010.

To put Kingston’s performance into perspective, the company’s revenue in the first half rose by USD 802 million sequentially—more than twice the amount of the next four largest suppliers combined. The company's market share gains came at the expense of nearly every other third-party DRAM module maker. All of the other Top 5 suppliers suffered sequential declines in market share in the first half.
