Out of focus: New technologies and competition from large-scale retailers will restrict growth

Camera Stores in the US

The Camera Stores industry's performance over five years to 2014 has been far from picture perfect. As the economic downturn reduced consumer spending on industry products such as cameras, revenue plummeted. While consumer spending has since recovered, camera sales have failed to return to prerecession levels, due to the increasing number of individuals that use the cameras on their smartphones. The industry is projected to contract further in the five years to 2019, as product substitution and external competition cut into industry revenue. This is because as camera phone technology advances and smartphones become more ubiquitous, consumers will be less inclined to purchase a separate camera. In addition, online stores and large-format retailers, such as Best Buy, are able to sell cameras at lower prices than traditional camera stores, due to lower per-item operating costs.

This industry comprises brick-and-mortar camera stores that sell photographic equipment and supplies such as cameras, lighting equipment, film, tripods and other accessories. E-commerce, consumer electronic store and catalog sales are not included in this industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
