Winbond said it had a 22.8 percent market share in NOR flash revenue and number one position in 2019, referencing data from WebFeet Research. The company shipped 3.089 billion flash memories in 2019 and 27.3 percent of the market by units.

Additionally, Winbond has been the top supplier of Serial NOR Flash since 2012 and had 27.1 percent market share out of a total revenue of $2.009 billion in 2019.

Winbond has started construction of a second 300mm wafer fab in Kaohsiung in Southern Taiwan.

“We anticipate further growth after recovering from 2020 and are ramping production of our products to address a wide range of higher-density applications,” said J W Park, technology executive responsible for flash memory at Winbond.

Winbond introduced its first 58nm-based products in 2011 and now offers a broad line of high-density 58nm SpiFlash memories spanning 16Mbit to 1Gbit densities, 3V and 1.8V power supplies, in a range of packages and known-good-die (KGD) solutions, with plans to move to 4x nm technology by 2021.
