there is no art without artists, no. while in my opinion o artist deserves an ivory tower of worship and "money for nothing" it also seems to me that artists have to spend more and more time online and less and less time making music to earn a living. i guess its how it is. not complaining.

...Without Music, Apple Would Be Nothing... | Ambient & Chill-out Music | Scoop.it
If Apple had never delved into the world of music with the iPod, it may never have made that transition to dominating the entire digital landscape. Apple would not be the company it is today, and may have faded into irrelevance, or even worse.

Digital music revenues to hit USD22.5bn by 2017

Digital music revenues to hit USD22.5bn by 2017 | Ambient & Chill-out Music | Scoop.it

Subscription services will boost digital music revenues by 15% per year on average to reach USD22.5bn by 2017, according to a new report from Ovum, as firms such as Pandora, Spotify and Rdio will help the overall music industry towards growth. Specifically, Ovum sees tie-ups with mobile operators and other service providers boosting subscription revenues, with bundled deals helping streaming revenues to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 46%.

Isaiah Ho Ser Jia's curator insight, July 22, 9:43 AM

It is estimated that by 2017, digital music revenue will reach USD 22.5bn due to subscription services which will boost revenue by 15% per year on average. 

Some examples of such international services are Spotify, Deezer, Rdio, Rhapsody, showing the competitiveness of the digital music platforms. Additionally, they are also competing with the growing number of local services  such as Smify in Germany and Saavn in India. 

However, this article is mostly predictions as it is a format that can be easily bundled by service providers, as well as offered directly resulting in increased  penetration of subscriptions around the world. Hence, although subscriptions are able to help increase the likelihood of having more penetration to increase the revenue, it cannot be said for certain that the revenue will hit 22.5bn in 2017.

yes it is because they have a huge number of income streams from the catalog which is massive? a single artist can never hope to make any money from streaming.
