Based on type, the global SLR camera market can be segmented into entry-class, medium-class and high-end class segments. The entry-class segment is projected to account for a major share of the global SLR camera market during the forecast period owing to its low cost and easy availability compared with other types of SLR cameras. However, as technology advances and more features are added in high-end class SLR cameras such as 4K video recording capabilities, autofocus tracking systems etc., this segment is expected witness highest growth rate during 2018–2030.

Global Single Lens Reflex Camera Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A single lens reflex camera is a type of camera that uses a mirror and prism system to show the image of the scene being photographed right side up in the viewfinder. This allows photographers to accurately preview what the photo will look like before taking it. SLR cameras are also capable of more accurate autofocus and manual focus than other types of cameras.


The entry-class is the lowest price category of SLR cameras. The SLR camera was initially designed for professional photographers who needed to expand their portfolio and increase their income. Over time, this product has become more popular among hobbyists as well because of its features such as higher image quality at a lower cost than other products in the market.

Usage statistics by regions: North America (U.S.


The definition of medium-class cameras is a little vague. It depends on who you ask. Some people might consider it to be cameras with the resolution of 24mm x 36mm or 28mm wide-angle lens, which would make them equivalent toAPS-C size sensor in a DSLR camera body.

Application Insights:

Amateur users accounted for the largest share of over 50.0% in 2017. The professional use of single lens reflex cameras has been growing at a significant rate due to its advantages such as compactness, light weight and high resolution over 35mm film or digital sensor. Moreover, technological advancements have made it possible to capture high quality images with the help of one lens which was not possible earlier due to the complexity involved in operating two lenses simultaneously. This application segment is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period owing to increasing demand from amateurs for photography trips and travels on a budget as well as on a luxury basis.

The entry-class SLR camera is preferred by amateur photographers who are just getting started with their photography journey since these cameras offer features such as automatic exposure control, auto focus.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global single lens reflex camera 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 engaged in launching new products for professional and advanced amateur users. For instance, in September 2018, Nikon Corporation launched DX format D850 DSLR with a 51-megapixel resolution sensor that is compatible with VR (Vibration Reduction) technology for shooting images without blur even when shooting video or photograph using handheld mode.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for photography as a hobby and profession
  • Advent of digital SLR cameras that offer better features and performance than traditional film cameras
  • Proliferation of online photo sharing and storage services that make it easy to store, share, and print photos
  • Growing popularity of travel photography as a way to document personal experiences and memories
  • Advances in camera technology that result in smaller, lighter, more powerful cameras with better image quality
