IFPI Music Consumer Insight Report – 2018

This report looks at how music soundtracks the many parts of our day and how this love of music is also driving fans’ growing adoption of technologies. From smartphones to smart speakers, music

is a force ushering in these connected devices that are being taken up globally.

WINTEL Worldwide Independent Market Report 2018

As 2018 draws to a close, we are delighted to publish the third edition of WINTEL which maps the global market share of the independent recorded music sector using copyright ownership rather than distribution as the measurement criteria.

2017 established the highest market share for the sector since the early nineties when scores of independent companies were acquired and removed from the indie sector. Increasing from around 20% in 1998 to 39.9% in 2017, during the most turbulent period of the industry’s history, is an astonishing achievement.

Country Profile Indonesia

In a music industry where new territories are crowned as the future of the global business seemingly every week, it is perhaps surprising that Indonesia is rarely mentioned. The country’s population of 260.6m is roughly equivalent to that of Germany, France, the UK and Spain combined, plus Indonesia is a stable democracy and it has a very youthful population, with around 42% of Indonesians aged under 25.

News and Notes on 2017 RIAA Revenue Statistics

In 2017 revenues from recorded music in the United States increased 16.5% at estimated retail value to $8.7 billion, continuing the growth from the previous year. At wholesale, revenues grew 12.6% to $5.9 billion. Similar to 2016, these increases came primarily from growth in paid music subscriptions to services like Spotify, Amazon, Tidal, AppleMusic, Pandora and others, which grew by more than 50%. This is the first time since 1999 that U.S. music revenues grew materially for two years in a row. At $8.7 billion, the industry has taken a decade to return to the same overall revenue level as 2008, and is still 40% below peak levels as the growth from streaming has been offset by continued declines in revenues from both physical and digital unit based sales.

Now in its fourth year, Measuring Music provides a vital insight into the economic contribution of the UK industry. I am very grateful to UK Music and all those who worked on the report, not least the musicians who gave their time.

Japan: Digital Rising

The number-two market in the world for recorded music, Japan operates outside of the norms that are shaping music markets in the rest of the developed world. With 73% of the market still made up by physical sales, and having more record shops than anywhere in the world — including the US — some say that the Japanese music industry is experiencing a ‘Galapagos Syndrome’ through which it is evolving separately from the rest of the world. As such, Japan may be able to maintain a healthy physical market while bene ting from growth in digital.
