Oneida Ltd. recently announced major gains in market share for the 12-month period ending March 31, 2008, as reported by The NPD Group, a leading provider of consumer and retail information. Oneida was the top-ranked brand in flatware, with a 26.6% market share. The company’s market share in flatware increased by 2.7 points during the year, more than any other brand, and Oneida also ranked as the number one brand in fine flatware, with a 20.1% market share.

While overall sales volume in the flatware category was down 3.5% vs. last year, Oneida increased its volume by 7.6%. In the casual flatware category, Oneida increased its market share by 4.7 points, to 31.1%, the greatest increase of any brand.
