Overview of Optical Products Industry in India
Indian optical product industry consists of microscopes, telescopes, binoculars theodolites, photography cameras, sextants etc. Photography camera is one of the fastest growing segments in Indian optical products industry. Initially, photography was restricted to important events and special occasions but with the passing years, due to increase in social activities and enhancement of the social arena, photography has become a hobby, a passion for different age groups.
Indian camera market is anticipated to grow at the Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of around 27% for next five years to reach USD 3 Billion (1675 Crores) by 2017. The major reasons for growth of the camera market will be low penetration, increasing disposable income, increasing social media, increasing tourism, and increase in advertising. On the other side, grey market and substitute products like mobile cameras are acting as restraints to the camera market. However, technological advancements like mirror less camera, 3D camera and increased functionalities like GPS, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, etc. in the cameras are expected to reduce the substitution effect in the coming times.
Initially, the market of DSLR cameras was limited to professional photographers because of high price and its best picture quality offerings for their profession. But as time passed by and with the rising standard of living, Indians started looking for perfection where DSLR cameras saw its market.
Thus, with the growing demand of cameras, demand for optical lenses and various profession associated with manufacturing of lenses is bound to increase in India.
