The UK photo stores I assist in managing sell black and white film
from Kodak, Ilford, Fujifilm, Rollei and ADOX. Our sales are too
small to be representative of the whole UK so I get my information
from the manufacturers.
I am told by Ilford and Adox that sales of black and white film are
steadily increasing against a background of an overall photography
market that is declining in the UK because of our austerity programme
and in the Euro zone because of its austerity programme.
I am told by Kodak and Fujifilm that colour film sales are still
dropping significantly, although sales of 4x5 inch transparency film
are holding up well.
In January 2013 I will be joining a large UK retail chain in a senior
position with the objective of improving the performance of its still
photography offering. I expect I will have access to a lot more
market data than I have now.
