The American company continues to accelerate forward, and is approaching 60 of the total market revenue of the modules market Memories The DRAM. Who trailed behind her on the list?
Is Kingston on its way to becoming a de facto monopoly in the RAM market? as per Updated report Of the TrendForce group of analysts, the US supplier ended 2014 with an unprecedented 59 percentage of total market revenue, which represents 44 growth of its 2013 revenue. Who is the loser? ADATA And Corsair, mostly.
The second highest place was Ramaxel Taiwan, which provides modules for a number of large enterprise customers Lenovo, Reaching 675 revenues last year, a handsome increase of about 12 of its 2013 revenue. Other suppliers that can be satisfied are Micron, Apacer and Team Group, who recorded several tens of millions of dollars in their 2014 rallies.
The main losers on the list of the top 10 on the market are actually two of the most well-known players in the Israeli market, ADATA וCoursayer, Which recorded a double-digit decrease in revenue in 2014 compared to what reached it in 2013. However, ADATA Still managed to maintain its third place in the leading entry lists, by the way.
Even the profits of the small number of small vendors in the market, which did not go into personal detail, recorded a reduction of nearly 15 percent in revenues - apparently indicating that the market's convergence towards a situation would leave only a relatively small number of significant players. However, it seems we are still not quite there, as all those small, modest actresses are still "worth" a pretty impressive 700 $ 1 million total revenue.
It should be made clear that this is the revenue share of the RAM module market only - the same 'sticks' of memory that you purchase for your laptops or laptops. This is not about the revenues of the makers of the RAM chips themselves, or the memory market built into video cards, tablets and smartphones - in these cases the memories usually come directly from the manufacturers, where in this category the fight is mainly between SK Hynix, סמסונג And Micron.
Despite the huge difference between Kingston and all the other players,RAM Keeps keep on בריאות relatively. The gaps between second, third and fourth place revenues in the table are very small, as is the fifth and ninth places as these struggles help maintain a competitive price level - and impressive overall market growth (total revenue increased by 1.5 billion from 2013 to -2014) seemingly assures us that none of the companies will rush out of the race and give up its foothold.
Is the designated passage To the DDR4 generation Even for systems The mainstream Will help scramble the cards and renew the the competition Between Kingston and all the rest, or will it only help the American supplier strengthen its uncompromising control? Whatever happens, we very much hope to continue seeing wars Technology And prices that will help us all enjoy more competitive hardware at winking prices.
