CIPA also released their annual market outlook for shipment of cameras and lenses – the worldwide camera shipment will decrease 6.1% this year (2022):

“Total shipments of digital cameras were 94.1% those of the previous year, and the mainstay “interchangeable lens” type cameras were 100.8%. In 2021 (January to December cumulative), the total shipments of digital cameras were 8,361,521 units, 94.1% of the previous year (the attached table is in units of 10,000). Although the market continued to expand significantly since such statistics started being kept in 1999, it decreased in 2009 for the first time due to the impact of the worldwide economic recession, decreased in 2011 due to the impact of the Great East Japan Earthquake and the flooding in Thailand, and then continued to decrease. Although it started to increase in 2017, it has fallen below the previous year’s level for four consecutive years since 2018.”

Here is another quote by Nikkei:

“The Camera & Imaging Products Association (CIPA) announced on the 22nd that the worldwide shipment of digital cameras in 2022 will decrease 6.1% from 2009 to 7.85 million units. It is expected to fall below the previous year’s level for the fifth consecutive year. The shortage of parts such as semiconductors is expected to continue to affect production for 22 years. Compared to the peak of 10 years (121.46 million units), it will be about 1/15. By type, the number of integrated lenses such as compact digital cameras is expected to decrease by 15% to 2.56 million units, and the number of interchangeable lens cameras such as single-lens reflex cameras and mirrorless cameras is expected to decrease by 1.1% to 5.29 million units.”
