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 American provider ended 2014 with an unprecedented figure of 59 percent of the total revenue of the entire market, which represents a growth of 44 percent of the revenue it had in 2013. Who are the losers? ADATA And Corsair, mostly.
The second highest place was Ramaxel Taiwan, which provides modules for a number of large enterprise customers Lenovo, And reached revenue of $ 675 million last year, a handsome increase of about 12 percent of its revenue in 2013. Other vendors that can be satisfied are Micron, Apacer andTeam Group Which recorded increases of several tens of millions of dollars in their revenues in 2014.
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.
The profits of all the small suppliers in the market, which did not receive personal details, also recorded a reduction of almost 15 percent in revenues - which ostensibly indicates the continued convergence of the market towards a situation where only a relatively small number of significant players will be left. However, it seems that we are still not quite there, since together all those small and modest actresses are still "worth" a pretty impressive total income of $ 700 million.
It is worth clarifying that these are only the revenue shares of the RAM modules market - the same 'sticks' of memory that you purchase for your desktops or desktops. This is not about the revenue of the RAM chip makers themselves, or the memory market built into video cards, tablets and smartphones - in these cases the memories usually come directly from the manufacturers, with in this category the struggle 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 well as between fifth place and ninth place, with these struggles helping to maintain a competitive price level - and impressive overall growth of the entire market (total revenues increased by $ 1.5 billion from 2013 to 2014) assures us, ostensibly, 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.
