The global digital camera market is anticipated to reach USD 19.77 billion by the end 2020, according to a new report released by Million Insights. Rising popularity of posting pictures on social media platforms is anticipated to drive the market growth. Moreover, low penetration of digital cameras in countries such as India and Brazil is projected to create potential growth opportunities for the key market players.

By product segment, the built-in lens segment accounted for the market share of 78.5% in terms of unit shipments. However, the demand for these cameras is projected to remain stagnant owing to rising adoption of smartphones equipped with high resolution digital cameras. On the other hand, the DSLR cameras segment held a significant market share of 17.2% in terms of unit shipments owing to features such as convenience, compactness, and efficiency.
Asia Pacific is projected to emerge as the largest market share owing to rising disposable income levels, rising penetration of social networking platforms such as Instagram and Facebook, and high growth opportunities in countries like China, Japan, and India. North American and European markets are largely driven by demand for replacing old cameras with new and upgraded ones.
Key players in the market are focusing on strategies such as differentiation, product innovation, and brand reinforcement. Moreover, they are focusing on developing advanced cameras with connectivity features. The market is highly centralized in nature with the dominance of Japanese companies.
