Canon Sales per type per year?
« on: March 07, 2015, 11:13:49 AM »
Just wondering if there is a chart that shows:

Canon Powershot units shipped or sold = 100000
Canon Rebel units shipped or sold = 10000
Canon EOS units shipped or sold = 1000

Year over Year or just the present year.

Curious what that breakdown looks like.

Manufacturers do not release detailed breakdowns of sales. 

There are figures gathered from various photo sellers by consultants which are then used to guess at the numbers, but they are approximate.  You have to pay to get the numbers and agree not to reveal them.  This all means beware of figures posted on the internet, they can be just made up stuff and often are.

I'm aware of two places where you can get accurate camera sales numbers.  They are not broken out as you would like.

1.  CIPA, a organization of Japanese camera manufacturers which accounts for most of the DSLR's sold.

2.  Canon financial reports.  They break out camera sales at a high level, and you have to calculate numbers from the percentages they give.  Look at the presentation materials.  You can calculate the overall number of DSLR's by using the unit base ratio.  Its not clear if lenses are included in that ratio, but it appears that they are in the value ratio.

These two slides are interesting in terms of the Canon strategy for FY15.

Just wish there was a way to tell the unit volume of sales in cameras and now much money was made per segment.
