Hi to all the members here, 
I am doing a research on the return of film photography, however, I have not yet found a solid evidence that could back up my claim. Is there any possible way I could acquire any statistics number to help me complete my theory? Or asking directly from big companies such as Kodak, Fujifilm, Ilford, etc, would be possible? Thank you very much.

Puts it quite well, sitting alongside digital. The article has some figures, and there are more if you google ‘photographic film sales statistics’. I don’t think it’ll return to anything like previous, but will maintain a level of sustainable interest.

Hii

film photography community is bringing that back; one click of the camera at a time. I am a film photographer and in love with the medium of film photography.

Did it ever go away? Or is it the ebb and flow of two different generational perceptions. If a 1000 people used p&s colour neg film in 1987 or 1997 now only 1 does, and the rest use a phone or maybe a bridge digicam (with superzoom). The 80s 90s folks had shoeboxes of negatives and photo-wallets of snaps. People now delete and/or lose gigabytes of images when they accidentally format SD cards, USB sticks or corrupt their laptops.
