Kingston shipped 10.1 million SSDs (solid state drives) through channel networks amounting to 16.1% of the total shipped SSDs globally

In its latest report, Forward Insights, a market research firm, has revealed that Kingston holds 16.1 percent market share in the total number of SSDs shipped through global channel. Only Samsung is ahead of Kingston with a market share of 21 percent. As per the research findings conducted by Forward Insights, out of a total of 63 million SSDs that were shipped worldwide in the channel in 2016, Kingston SSDs accounted to nearly 10.1 million units resulting in 16.1 percent share. The sales channel is comprised of distributors, resellers, retails, e-tails, system builders and solutions providers.
“The desire to switch to SSDs continues to grow as consumers and corporate customers alike see the performance benefits of upgrading from hard-disk drives,” said Kingston’s Spokesperson. “For nearly 30 years, Kingston’s focus and core sales strength has been with our channel partners worldwide. Our terrific relationship with them has helped make our SSD business grow globally since we shipped our first drive in 2009. The latest results from Forward Insights help validate these efforts and we certainly share this success with our channel partners,” added Spokesperson.
Forward Insights has been at the forefront of providing independent market analyses and information to many manufacturers including Kingston.“Our research showed third-party SSD manufacturers accounted for 60 percent of all channel shipments last year as a number of the semiconductor-based vendors de-emphasized their channel business,” said Spokesperson of Forward Insights.
