Interchangeable-Lens Camera Market Share in 2014



Nikkei Asian Review published this interesting chart showing which companies dominated the interchangeable-lens camera sales in 2014. Canon had 43.3%, Nikon had 32.1%, Sony had 13%, and other companies accounted for a combined 11.6%. From a year earlier, Nikon lost 2.5% share to Sony and other smaller companies, while Canon basically held steady.

The article is an interesting look at how Sony was able to breathe new life into its brand and prospects, essentially saving its camera business, with the introduction of the Alpha 7 line of high-end mirrorless cameras.
