The retail news source ICv2 estimated that the North American anime market will have US$160 to US$200 million in sales in 2010. In its Internal Correspondence #73 publication, ICv2 cautioned that its estimates cannot be more precise because the retail store chain Walmart does not report its anime DVD sales.

ICv2 had also estimated that the North American manga market was US$140 million last year. These estimates indicate that — unlike in Japan — the anime market is still bigger than the manga market in North America.
