CIPA January Report Shows Sharp Decline in Camera Sales

CIPA Report says camera sales are all time low this January 2019 [compared to previous year]. According to CIPA report the DSLR shipments are down 21.8%, mirrorless is down 14.8%, compacts are down 31.6%, lenses for smaller than 35mm cameras down 26.6%, lenses for 35mm cameras down 4.9%.

I am not able to believe, despite Canon and Nikon entry in the Fullframe Mirrorless  Market  the Mirrorless sales dipped upto 14.8% compared to 2019 January 2018 which is really scary.

People have more options right now, but still sales are going down.

    … some people switched from DSLR to Fujifilm cameras and are happy
    … some people switched from DSLR (Nik,Can) to Sony and are happy
    … only few people left (in the Nik,Can camp) now who want to switch to mirrorless
    and most of us now realize mirrorless means more expensive cameras and also more expensive lenses; where do you get cam + kit lens for 500 bugs in the mirrorless camp?

    Canon may have been optimistic about sales over next 2 years. Alas smartphones which are the scourge of the planet in many ways are decimating camera sales.
