CIPA sees continued but slowing digital SLR sales growth  
Tuesday, January 29, 2008 | by Rob Galbraith
The Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA), a group representing Japanese camera manufacturers, is projecting that digital SLRs sales, which grew in 2007 by about 42% over the previous year, will expand by about 22% in 2008, about 13% in 2009 and about 9% in 2010. In 2007, sales of digital cameras surpassed 100 million units for the first time, with digital SLRs accounting for about 7.5 million of that total. Digital SLR sales are expected to reach 11.2 million units in 2010.
Sales of lenses for SLRs, which were up by about 43% in 2007, are expected to track just behind the sales growth of digital SLR cameras: about 17% in 2008, about 11% in 2009 and about 7% in 2010. About 12.5 million such lenses were sold in 2007, and this is expected to increase to about 17.4 million units in 2010.
In 2007, film camera sales dipped to about 790,000 units, a decrease of about 52% from the year before.
More information is in a CIPA press release.
