Market Scenario

A camera tripod has three legs and is used to hold cameras in position and keep it steady. Tripods come in various sizes and are used with regard to the weight of the camera to be held. For instance, if the tripod is too small, it will not hold and support a camera adequately. Major parts of a camera tripod include legs, head, and a plate. The head helps in moving the camera while the plate is where the camera is mounted. The legs distribute the weight evenly among them to balance the camera. The prime factors driving the demand for camera tripods are the growing inclination for professional photography and the popularity of social media. Consumers use social media to write blogs and upload their creative photographs of landscapes and portraits. This is driving the sales of camera accessories, including tripods.

However, high product cost and the growing number of local brands offering counterfeit and inferior quality products may hinder the market growth during the forecast period.

The impact of COVID-19 has directly affected the distribution and sales of different products across industries. Many countries are under lockdown and have sealed their borders to curb the spread of the virus. The impact of COVID-19 on logistics has disrupted the supply of raw materials, which has further resulted in reduced production capacity and, thus, product shortages. These factors are expected to cause a price rise in camera tripods in the short run. Moreover, different governments worldwide are limiting access to tourist spots and public gathering places to control the spread of the virus. Due to this scenario, outdoor photography has become a challenge leading to hindered sales of camera tripods globally. However, the gradual relaxation of government norms will encourage consumers to restart tourism and outdoor photography and increase the sales of camera tripods in the near future.
