Current Market Trends
The global system camera and box camera market declined in volume by 25% in 2020 as COVID-19 stalled many sports leagues and live events. Typically, the system camera market is relatively stable year on year, and the recovery of the market provides an indicator of the returning investment in live sports, concerts and events.
There was a notable global increase in 4K uptake in 2020, as 59% of system cameras shipped were capable of shooting in this resolution. Demand for 8K dropped, and the technology continues to be held back by its high price point and lack of ROI. However, HDR is assuming its place as a standard technology, which featured in 93% of system cameras sold in 2020.
Looking forward, Futuresource expects the market to stabilise, with annual volumes increasing by 37% in FY25 vs FY20, with a CAGR of 6.5% over the duration of this five-year period.
