Camera & Film Wholesaling in the US

The Camera and Film Wholesaling industry, which distributes photographic equipment and supplies, has declined over the past five years. Much of this decline is attributable to the incorporation of high-quality cameras in smartphones, which continues to pose a substantial threat to industry operators. As camera phone technology has improved to nearly match the quality of a typical digital camera, consumers have increasingly opted for a single device with a built-in camera. These advances have rendered many of the industry's products obsolete, while the proliferation of wholesale bypass has made intermediary distributors less relevant to the industry's supply chain. Moving forward, increased competition over a limited number of customers will cause many operators to exit the market, and will cause revenue to continue declining.

Industry operators wholesale photographic equipment and supplies, including digital cameras, photofinishing equipment, photographic film, television cameras and projection equipment. This industry does not wholesale office supplies, photocopying equipment, microfilm equipment or household video cameras.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
