Nikkei News has an article about trends in the digital camera market centered on Sony.

It has been 10 years since we entered the mirrorless market. Sony, a rookie in the camera industry, is now a mirrorless market leader. Is it possible to create a new market and regain camera demand by downsizing the specialty?

Mirrorless cameras are relatively solid in the rapidly declining digital camera market. Mirrorless cameras now account for about 50% of interchangeable lenses on a shipment volume basis and about 65% on a monetary basis. Shipments of mirrorless cameras in July fell by 20%, narrowing the range, and shipment value was about the same as the same month of the previous year, putting a stop to the negative.

Sony, which took the lead in mirrorless cameras, has expanded its lineup of interchangeable lenses, which are indispensable for acquiring and retaining camera enthusiasts. The α7C not only stimulates sluggish demand, but may further destroy the stronghold of SLR cameras.

According to Techno, Sony shipped 3 million digital cameras in 2019. For the first time, he overtook Nikon to move up to 2nd place. In mirrorless, it leads with 1.65 million units, which is 700,000 units behind Canon, which is in second place.

With the rise of smartphones, the digital camera market has shrunk to one-eighth from its peak in 2010. Is the future uncertain due to the corona wreck, or can the digital camera market be revived? The two shoulders of the mirrorless lord have a heavy responsibility to regain the sluggish market.
