bcn awards for japanese digital camera market 2017

The BCN Awards for technology products sold in Japan have been released again to cover the year 2016. These awards are based on actual sales and represent the majority of all sales for each category. They provide a good way of seeing how the major Camera Brands have performed throughout the year.

Digital Camera with Integrated Lens (Compact Camera)

The compact camera market is becoming less desirable and hence more spread out as manufacturers head for more profitable niches. Of those listed Canon again had the largest share with 27.3% but this has to be taken into context with disrupted production caused by the April earthquake that effected the outcome.

Nikon came in second with a slightly improved 22.1% of sales followed by Casio who jumped up to 19.3% of total sales. This still left nearly a third to the other brands.

The Digital Camera Market sales figures from Japan have been released for June 2016. BCN publish weekly and monthly sales charts for both interchangeble lens and compact cameras in Japan. These figures come from retail sources about the actual cameras sold not just produced or shipped. They account for over 50% of total sales in Japan and so are regarded as an accurate indicator of what has sold.

These figures give valuable insight as to which brands are leading the camera markets, at least in Japan. No sales figures are provided just the ranking of camera against camera. One snag with these rankings is that it treats the same camera in different kit forms as different cameras. So in the interchangeable lens camera rankings a single camera can have more than one listing. In effect a particular camera body could be the highest selling yet not be in the top spot. So we have to take that into account before listing the winners.
