Sony predicts a massive drop in Cameras sales

Postby sidd finch » Thu Aug 08, 2019 9:40 am

Sony predicts its camera sales will see a massive drop in the near future. How big of a drop? Sony believes it will sell 1.4 million fewer cameras than it did in 2017. In page 4 of the reports document, the “Supplemental Information” section, it reveals how well Sony is performing in regards to sales. It also gives an indication of Sony’s expectations for the rest of the year.

In 2017, Sony sold 4.4 million cameras. In 2018 it dropped to 3.6 million — which is about an 800,000-unit drop in sales. Now, it seems Sony is bracing itself for another 800,000 drop. This prediction is only for cameras, not information sensors.

I'm not surprised. Tourists used to carry cameras. Now they hold phones.
