Industry sales figures for last 12 months (April 2019 - March 2020)


sadly the manufacturers are pretty bad and in-transparent with the quarterly reportings when it comes to any details on their camera business. The only figure many share is sales in money. No reliable unit sales though. No profits either.

We do know Canon and Fuji (imaging) are still turning profits. Sony is not willing to make a statement on this. Nikon and Olympus are open about their imaging business bleeding money.

Please also keep in mind that they all mix in some sub-segments which others do not. The dedicated video camera (incl. very high price pro gear) business is one example, the analog photo business is another.

Canon continues to lead. Olympus is stable in it's niche. Fuji and Sony fight for the 2nd/3rd place with Fuji gaining a lead on Sony. Nikon continues to fade away. Sony having the disadvantage of having a very aggressive investor on board, who might want to spin off Sony's underperforming camera business.

Anyhow this is how it looks:
