Executive Summary

Aug 2019
PROSPECTS
Smartphone usage continues to undermine demand for digital cameras

Digital cameras volume sales are projected to decline throughout the forecast period, maintaining the negative trend observed over 2014-2019. Falling demand reflects the ubiquity of smartphones with built-in cameras.

Compact system cameras increasingly favoured for image quality and versatility

While fixed lens models remained the leading type in digital cameras in 2019, their volume share is expected to decline rapidly over the forecast period. This is because these products are most exposed to the threat from smartphones.

Digital camcorders also fall victim to smartphone cannibalisation

As is the case with digital cameras, volume sales of digital camcorders are expected to decline over the forecast period due to smartphone cannibalisation. While the advent of smaller and more sophisticated action cameras, particularly GoPro models, provided a brief respite for this category early in the review period, interest in these products has quickly matured.

COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE
Canon releases first 8K footage shot with upcoming EOS Cinema Camera

Canon remained the clear leader in digital cameras in volume terms in 2019 thanks to its wide portfolio and longstanding reputation for quality and innovation. Together with new launches and strong brand recognition, this reputation helped it to continuously increase its volume share throughout the review period.

GoPro launches innovative Hero 7 range of action cameras

GoPro introduced its Hero 7 range of action cameras in late 2018. These products boast several highly innovative features, including “HyperSmooth” image stabilisation for 4K 60fps video, a “TimeWarp” time-lapse mode and a “SuperPhoto” mode that automatically chooses the optimum settings for capturing still images.

L-Mount Alliance members aim to strengthen competitiveness via compatibility

In September 2018, Leica Camera, Sigma and Panasonic announced the formation of the L-Mount Alliance. This strategic collaboration has already seen the three partners introduce several compact system cameras and lenses that can be mixed and matched with each other’s products via the use of Leica L-Mount bayonet mounts, and many more launches are planned for the forecast period.
