Throughout the photographic industry strong echoed the news about the April earthquake in Japan – we also wrote about him. Because the industry foto focus is in the country of the rising sun, so the earthquake had a direct impact on it. Now we know how big. CIPA organization published a report on manufacturing cameras for May. The results are quite surprising. It turns out that in May this year produced about 1.6 million units, while even in 2014 was nearly 3.5 million. This shows that production fell more than doubled.
Most earthquake suffered from Sony, because it touched one of his factories. However, given that 40 percent of the market matrix cameras belongs to Sony, it is obvious that and other manufacturers in a smaller or larger scale felt the effects of the earthquake. It should be expected that the situation will slowly return to normal, because the last two months the producers still struggling with the aftermath of the earthquake, and thus the results for June will surely be much better. The entire report can see on the organization’s website . Source: CIPA
