New data: total number of Canon, Sony, and Nikon cameras produced in 2020


The Japanese Sankeibiz (translated) published some new data on the total number of cameras produced in 2020:

  • According to the Japanese research firm Techno System, Sony produced 1.15 million mirrorless cameras in 2020, Canon is second with 1.05 million cameras, followed by Nikon with 250,000 cameras (out of a total of 3.26 million mirrorless cameras produced in 2020)
  • Out of a total of 2.39 million DSLR cameras produced in 2020, Canon had 1.71 million and Nikon had 650,000.

According to the Camera & Imaging Products Association, worldwide shipments of mirrorless cameras in 2020 decreased by 25.9% from the previous year to 2.93 million units. The number of DSLR cameras was 2.37 million (down 47.3%).

When we talk about the overall number of cameras produced, all of the sudden Fujifilm and Olympus completely disappear from the big picture, which confirms that the BCN Rankings doesn’t really mean anything:
