Kingston Digital is the number one supplier of SSDs in the channel in 2020, according to TrendForce. Kingston accounted for 27 percent of the 111.5 million units shipped in 2020.
TrendForce reported a 15 percent decrease in annual SSD shipments to the channel and severe delays in manufacturing and logistics resulting in a sudden decline in order volumes.
Kingston Technology’s presence in the market is due to its strong relationships with customers and channel partners.
“The 2020 research findings reinforce Kingston’s growing presence and position in the SSD market,” said Keith Schimmenti, SSD business manager, Kingston. “The pandemic has accelerated the demand of SSDs with remote working and education as the key drivers behind last year’s surge continuing through 2021 into next year.”
Kingston has added two PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSDs — KC3000 and Kingston FURY Renegade SSD.
