Samsung was the largest vendor with revenue of US$11.68 billion during the quarter, an increase of 11.1% quarter-to-quarter, for a market share of 44%.
SK Hynix ranked second with revenue of US$7.225 billion, an increase of 7.5% from the previous quarter for a market share of 27.2%.
Micron took third place with revenue of US$6.72 billion, a rise of 11.8% quarter-to-quarter, for a market share of 22.9%.
TrendForce said the companies benefited from an increase in unit prices and the application of advanced process nodes. Demand from the server sector sustained the growth, it added.
