The stock photo market in Germany is worth about $260 million a year, according to an estimate of the German press agency association.

The study is based on an anonymous survey where 44 of the 100 BVPA member agencies participated. The agencies surveyed earned a combined revenue of 32.9 million euros in the 2005.
