Global camera shipments plummeted by more than 50% in the first half of the year: SLR/Micro-single directly cut

  The sudden epidemic has made the previously sluggish digital camera market even worse.

   Data released by the Japan Camera and Imaging Machinery Industry Association on Monday showed that global digital camera shipments in the first half of this year decreased by 51.9% year-on-year to 3.51 million units. Regardless of the model, shipments have dropped significantly in all parts of the world compared with the previous year, especially in the Americas and Asia except China and Japan, where shipments have dropped by nearly 60%. The restrictions on going out due to the new crown epidemic cast a shadow on sales.

   Of course, the most fundamental impact on digital cameras is that smart phones are becoming more and more powerful, at least to meet the general shooting scenarios of more and more users, and the portability is also excellent.

   Specifically, global shipments of card cameras decreased by 55.6% to 1.49 million units; SLR cameras decreased by 53.8% to 1.01 million units. The mirrorless cameras also decreased by 42.5% to 1 million units.

   In terms of regions, shipments in the Americas decreased by 56.1% to 780,000 units, and Asian regions except China and Japan decreased by 56.9% to 450,000 units, a significant decline. China’s number was 470,000, a decrease of 25.8%, a relatively small drop.
