CIPA, the Japanese Digital camera & Imaging Merchandise Affiliation, has launched its numbers for July and issues do not look terribly rosy. The summer season months are typically a slower time of the 12 months for many retail sectors, however by way of digital camera shipments this previous July has been a lot worse than in 2017.

In comparison with final 12 months, shipments of all digital cameras are down 33%, dropping from 1,942,192 to 1,496,604. Issues look solely barely higher within the interchangeable lens section the place now we have seen a smaller drop from 973,651 to 820,893 items (down 16%).

The numbers look notably unhealthy partly as a result of summer season shipments in 2017 have been sturdy – or at the least, did not dip as dramatically as they’ve in 2016 and this 12 months. And on the plus facet, the trade can now look ahead to the historically stronger autumn months and the vacation season. The latest high-profile product launches from Nikon, Fujifilm and Panasonic, plus any new merchandise that may be introduced on the upcoming Photokina commerce present, will doubtless have a optimistic affect on shipments for the rest of the 12 months.
