The latest BCN ranking has just been published. It collects data of about 40% of the Japanese electronics and online stores.
Here is what they say (google translated from Japanese):
- mirrorless interchangeable-lens digital cameras in May were 38.0% compared to the previous year
- Even by year-on-year sales volume by manufacturer, Canon (25.8%), Sony (39.2%), and Olympus (39.0%) have remained sluggish. Despite the wide range of sales, Fujifilm, which is the fourth fastest, had a sales decrease of 91.8%, a slight decrease from the previous year [admin note: I think what google translate tries to say, is that sales are down only 8.1% for Fujifilm, so they sold 91.8% of what they sold last year, hence better than any other company]
- Fujifilm, which is the fourth largest, has a sales decrease of 91.8%, which is a slight decrease from the previous year
- Digital camera sales in May have recovered slightly compared to April, but that is still 38.0% of the same month the year before, so the situation remains very difficult.
