CIPA has released its camera sales statistics for October 2017, and the numbers may be a disappointment to some companies.
Year-over-year total shipments for cameras in October are down 13%, but between the months of January 2017, through October 2017, we have an increase of 6% for ILC cameras, so we should likely wait to see how November’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales affect the year-over-year numbers.
Mirrorless has seen a good increase year-over-year, but most of the increase is happening in Asia as they continue to erode sales of DSLRs, North America remains a harder marketplace for mirrorless cameras.
Globally, mirrorless now makes up 36% of all ILC camera sales, and Canon is taking a big chunk of that with their revamped EOS M lineup.
The two giants Canon & Nikon need to obviously release professional mirrorless cameras in 2018. However, only Nikon has confirmed that they are doing so.
