Market research firm In-Stat released a report today tallying up a projected revenue of $825 million for the mirrorless camera segment by 2015. The fastest growth is predicted to come from Asia and Europe, already noted for early adoption of the new technology. The report also predicts that interchangeable lens cameras including mirrorless models will account for 40% of global camera revenue.
Mirrorless digital cameras, an increasingly competitive market space, were first introduced with Olympus and Panasonic’s Micro Four Thirds system. Sony and Samsung joined the field with cameras sporting larger APS-C sensors.
