From the Paper:

"Historically, the PLC of digital cameras required massive investments in development, launch onto the market, growth, support at maturity stages and revival in decline. Today, most of the investments are made in development, introduction and sales. Sony and its competitors understood the futility of trying to support a declining product in an era of rapid technological innovations. As such, most of the financial resources and time is spent on research and development of newer technologies and their integration within products that will further increase customer satisfaction."
