Digital SLR Cameras Driving Growth of the Digital Camera Market

Description:    Digitization has helped the growth of many consumer electronics products and digital cameras are
                one of the beneficiaries of this technological advancement. The digital camera industry had seen
                unprecedented growth in the recent past, but the global economic environment has slowed its

                One of the segments of the digital camera market – the single lens reflex (SLR) cameras, which
                give photographers enough room for experimentation with interchangeable lenses - is growing at a
                higher rate. Digital SLRs help achieve a broader range of quality photographs with better image
                sensors and processors.

                The popularity and acceptance of SLR cameras could be estimated from the fact that during the
                year ended March 2008, global shipment of digital SLR camera reached the same level achieved by
                the conventional film SLRs in 1981 with 7.5 million units. Digital SLR cameras hold immense
                potential for growth in the future with the ease of their usage, digitization, major innovations,
                diversity in product concepts, declining prices and growth in emerging markets.

                Emerging markets especially China, India, and Eastern Europe are experiencing strong growth in
                the sales of digital SLR cameras, while the growth rate has slowed in Japan and the United States.
                Although the market for digital cameras is expanding, the profit margins of the overall industry
                have been shrinking because of the fierce price war.

                In the near future, growth of the digital camera market will be driven mostly by digital SLR
                cameras. The current economic slowdown is expected to affect the shipment of compact cameras or
                cameras with built-in-lenses. Further, as digital SLR sales are driving the camera market, so are
                the dedicated accessories like interchangeable lenses. The market for interchangeable lens is
                expected to grow as a result of the rapid market penetration of digital SLR cameras.

                overall digital camera market. The major focus of the report is on the digital SLR segment that
