"We are market leaders in the DSLR market segment. This fiscal year, we are having 55 per cent market share in this segment," Nikon India Managing Director Hiorshi Takashina said.             

In 2012-13, the total market size for DSLR cameras in India was 2.4 lakh units. This fiscal, it is expected to be be around 3 lakh units and around 3.6 lakh units in 2014-15. "This year, although the economy is slowing down, we would have a steady growth of 20 per cent," he said.               

Despite slowdown in the economy, DSLRs would remain in demand as customers having compact cameras (point and shoot) and smart-phones are upgrading to get a better picture result, Takashina said.
