2013 Report on the $3 Billion US Camera & Photographic Supplies Stores Market Featuring Calumet Photographic, Ritz Camera & Image, and Samy's Camera
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/q8m78x/camera_and) has announced the addition of the "Camera & Photographic Supplies Stores" report to their offering.
Companies in this industry sell cameras and other photographic equipment and supplies from physical retail locations. Major US companies include Calumet Photographic, Ritz Camera & Image, and Samy's Camera.
The US camera and photographic supplies retail industry includes about 800 companies with combined annual revenue of more than $3 billion. The industry is expected to grow at a low rate in the next two years. Key challenges include competition from online retailers and mass merchandisers.
Demand depends on consumer income. Profitability of individual companies is linked to marketing and efficiency of operations. Large companies can have economies of scale in purchasing and operations. Small companies can compete successfully by offering superior service. The industry is concentrated: the 50 largest companies account for more than 80 percent of the market.
Major competitors are big-box retailers, like Wal-Mart and Target, and electronics superstores, such as Best Buy. Photo kiosks and mini-labs are also found in many major drugstore chains. Digital photography has had a major impact on the industry. The combination of more competitors and consumers' new habits has hurt many camera and photo supply retailers.
