Will Nikon be out of business in 5 years?
Oct 28, 2013

Just something to think about when a company is so "invested" in just one business and not diversified.

Christopher Chute from market intelligence firm IDC predicts  Nikon may be out of business in 5 years if the trend continues.

“You’re talking about a 10-15% decline in DSLR shipments all over the world. Which is kind of shocking because that market’s been growing double digits for almost ten years. Nikon recently said they have a five year plan to address this. And my view is, that five year plan should have come out five years ago. They’re not going to be around in five years.”

Let's hope for the industries sake that this is not the case.
