Global Digital Camera Market Trends:
The global market is majorly driven by the increasing preference for digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras for travel and fashion and lifestyle photography. Supported by the growing influence of social media platforms across the globe, this is providing a boost to the sales of digital cameras. Moreover, the increasing participation of individuals in adventure sports activities and the growing popularity of vlogging have contributed to an increased uptake of action cameras in the recent past.
