Mirrorless sales in EU and USA doing pretty bad.


Vitaly from Personal View (Click here) analyzed the CIPA data (pdf here). He highlighted in red where the sales shrinked and in green where there was a growth. As you can see oversea sales (means outside Japan) shrinked in all camera segments (from compact camera to DSLR to mirrorless). And mirrorless sales are doing worse than DSLR.

Europe: Almost half of cameras were sold compared to the previous period. While the DSLR sales had a minus 10% only.
USA:  Around 30% less mirrorless cameras sold while DSLR had a negligible 3-4% loss only.

Question: Is the mirrorless hype over? What has to be done to bring mirrorless cameras back to success?
