Kingston has announced that it has secured the top position in the channel for SSD market share at the end of 2022. The market share data, provided by analyst research company TRENDFOCUS, showed that Kingston had shipped 22 million client SSDs for the entire year, with a 24% market share. Despite the total client SSD unit market decreasing by 15% YoY in 2022, Kingston’s client SSD market share grew to 28.4% in Q3, displaying upward unit growth despite ongoing macro challenges.

The growth in Kingston’s SSD segment comes from introducing high-performance products across categories, such as the NV2 PCIe 4.0 NVMe SSD for mainstream users and the KC3000 PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD for high-performance users. The company also launched the FURY Renegade PCIe 4.0 NVMe M.2 SSD catering to users looking for extreme performance.

According to TRENDFOCUS, the adoption of solid-state drives by clients was largely due to module pricing falling to an all-time low. Furthermore, single-drive SSD attach rates on desktop PCs reached 75% in 2022 and are forecasted to hit 90% by the end of 2023 as Microsoft has ruled to phase out HDDs as primary PC storage in the second half of next year with only a small number of HDD-enabled systems shipping.

Pokdepinion: Given recent DRAM pricing, safe to say NAND price will continue its downward trajectory in the near future as well.
