Over the five years to 2015, revenue for the Camera Store industry has been growing at an annualized rate of 2.6% to $876.3 million. Higher household disposable incomes and improved living standards in China have contributed to general higher demand for cameras in recent years.
However, there has been a growing trend of camera cell phones replacing low-end pocket cameras. Cell phone cameras can be used in most circumstances for basic photos, with their quality having only improved. Despite rising demand for digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, industry revenue is estimated to decrease 2.5% in 2015.
Camera Stores in China retail traditional and digital cameras, and photographic equipment and supplies such as external lighting equipment, film, tripods and memory cards. Operators often provide after-sales services for low-level technical problems. The industry excludes the retailing of video cameras.
