According to last year's sales figures for Europe and the US, DSLR were seeing an upsurge in sales while MLCs have been flat. There was a bump in fourth quarter 2012 but that flattened out at the end of the fourth quarter.

Shipping by type in Americas and Europe (MR-mirrorless DSLR-digital single lens reflex)

No matter how you crunch it, 2011, 2012, and 2013 were bad years for mirrorless cameras. With less than 8% of the market, Olympus is not looking good for 2015. They have suspended dividens until they become profitable again. With Panasonic half of it's imaging business, that doesn't leave very many players in the MLC arena. Will Fujifilm be the last man standing?

This is what I don't get about "mirrorless is taking over!" crazy people. If anything the compact mirrorless market is more threatened by cellphones than the DSLR.
