CANON LEADS, BUT SAMSUNG CLIMBS IN CAMERA SHIPMENTS
Digital camera shipments continued to rise in 2006, climbing 14.5 percent to 106 million units -- and Samsung more than doubled its digital camera shipments in 2006, reports IDC, expanding its market share to 7.8 percent from just 3.8 percent a year earlier.
However, Canon remains firmly in the lead in overall global digital camera shipments in 2006, according to the Framington, MA-based research firm.
IDC says Canon shipped 19.7 million cameras in 2006, 18.7 percent of the market. Sony was 2nd with 15.8 percent; Kodak, 4th at 10 percent; Olympus followed with 8.6. Nikon, knocked out of the top 5 by Samsung, had a close 7.6 percent market share in 2006.
In particular, digital SLR shipments grew 39 percent to 5 million units last year. Canon had 46.7 percent share of that market niche, with Nikon taking 33 percent.
