Report Summary:
In 2019, hardly anyone could have predicted the arrival of the COVID-19 virus in 2020, the effects that it would have on the world, and its impact on photo taking. The result of all the restrictions put in place to slow the spread of the virus was a drop in global photos captured in 2020 to 1.12 trillion photos.

Despite COVID-19, people continue to be snap-happy. As more people are vaccinated against the COVID virus and things begin to open up in many countries, people are taking to the streets again and bringing their phone and cameras. As a result, Rise Above Research forecasts that there will be a 25% increase in photos taken globally in 2021.

This report is based on the Rise Above Research Worldwide Image Capture Forecast. It includes:

  • Estimates of photos taken globally for the years 2020 to 2025
  • The shares of photos taken by smartphones, cameras, and tablets
  • Which regions of the world are most photo-active
  • The cumulative number of unique photos saved
