CIPA 2009 numbers for all of 2008 ,link

We're probably a month away from end of year 2009 numbers from camera manufacturers.
End of March is end of year for several imaging companies including Pentax.

It belongs to Genaral Talk. But no, the global economy hasn't shifted to Asia. China/India provides cheap labour to the West, within facilities set up from our money. That's all. Even them counting billions, they still don't have the puchasing power of the West. That may change in the future (likely) or not.

As for the photographic markets, North America + Europe + Japan accounts to 75% of the global market (2007 figures), while Asia (w/o Japan) accounts to 17% only. Asia may grow faster, but it doesn't matter yet.

Europe alone is twice as big as China + India + Korea + Indonesia + Philippines + Vietnam + Malaysia + Pakistan + Taiwan etc.

Thanks, so in 2008, Asia increased from 17% to 21%.
