Market Overview:

The global digital still camera market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to factors such as the increasing demand for digital cameras from amateur and professional photographers, technological advancements in digital cameras, and rising disposable income of consumers. On the basis of type, the global digital still camera market is segmented into built-in lens cameras (point-and-shoot) and interchangeable lens cameras (DSLR and MILC). The interchangeable lens camera segment is expected to grow at a higher CAGR than the built-in lens camera segment during the forecast period. This can be attributed to increasing demand for DSLRs and MILCs from professional photographers owing to their superior image quality as compared with point-and-shoot cameras. On the basis of application,the global digital still camera market is divided into amateur photography and professional photography segments.

Global Digital Still Camera Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A digital still camera is a type of camera that captures digital images. These images can be stored on a computer or printed out. Digital still cameras are often used to capture photographs, but they can also be used to capture video clips.

Built-in Lens Cameras (Point-and-Shoot):

Point-and-shoot cameras have been around for decades. They are easy to use and offer a high level of convenience, which is the major factor propelling their demand. These devices are available in various price ranges; thus, they can be used by people of different economic groups.

Interchangeable Lens Cameras (DSLR and MILC):

Interchangeable lens cameras are electronic devices that can take pictures through both ends of the lens. The first interchangeable lenses were developed in the early 1970s, and since then technology has advanced to where many modern digital cameras can interchangeably use different types of lenses.

The global interchangeable lens camera market was valued at USD 6,700 million in 2013.

Application Insights:

Amateur application segment dominated the global market in 2017. The growth of this segment can be attributed to increasing availability of advanced products at an affordable price range. For instance, Sony Corporation introduced a new product named as Sony A99 II with a price tag of USD 2,450 in 2015 which was previously available only for professionals but now amateurs can also afford it. On the other hand, professional application segment is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to growing demand from security agencies and police departments across various regions including North America and Europe. Digital still cameras are widely used by police forces for taking photographs during investigations leading to arrest or seizure of criminal assets such as drugs, arms and ammunition thereby preventing crime before it occurs or catching criminals red-handed which further boosts product demand among professionals. Moreover, increasing use cases such as recording business meetings & conferences along with live streaming on social media platforms has increased visibility resulting in greater adoption among businesses globally driving industry expansion further.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The growth of this region can be attributed to the presence of major players such as Nikon Corporation; Canon Inc.; and Sony Corporation. Moreover, these companies are consistently investing in R&D activities to develop advanced digital still cameras with enhanced features and functions. In addition, high disposable income levels coupled with a large number of manufacturers operating within this region is expected to fuel industry growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness significant growth over the next eight years owing to increasing demand for compact digital Still cameras from consumers across China and India on account of rising disposable incomes, along with growing popularity for outdoor activities such as trekking and hiking photography among travelers from these countries. Furthermore, increasing penetration rates for social media websites such as Facebook has led users from China & India spend more time clicking pictures than chatting online which will further boost product sales across Asia Pacific during the forecast period  (2018 - 2030).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for digital still cameras from the photography enthusiasts and professional photographers.
  • Proliferation of advanced features in digital still cameras such as high-resolution sensors, Wi-Fi connectivity, and touch screens that appeal to the consumers.
  • Growing demand for digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras from the professional photographers and hobbyists due to their superior image quality compared to other types of digital cameras.
  • Introduction of innovative products with advanced features by the leading players in the market that attract consumers towards them.
