Kingston was ranked No. 1 in the world by research firm iSuppli in the third-party DRAM module market for 2009.
According to the report, Kingston's revenue from memory modules was more than $2.85 billion (U.S.), giving it 40.3 percent of the total third-party memory module market.
A-Data and Ramaxel follow with a 7.4% and a 7.1% market share, as you can see in the chart below:
Kingston's memory module products include branded or system-specific memory; ValueRAM memory built to JEDEC specs and designed for system integrators and white box builders; and HyperX memory for gamers and PC enthusiasts.
The iSuppli report covers memory module revenue only. It does not cover Kingston's NAND Flash revenues. In February, Kingston announced that its 2009 global revenues were $4.1 billion, the second highest in company history.
