111 mln digital cameras to sell in 2008

Global demand for digital still cameras will continue to be strong in the short term, with 111 million units shipping in 2008, but a slowdown is on the horizon. Asia-Pacific and the Rest of the World (ROW) will emerge as powerhouses and account for over 40% of the global DSC shipments in 2010. More vendors will exit the market in the next 18 months, IDC says.
