The Real Value Of The Independent Sector

The Real Value Of The Independent Sector | The music industry in the digital context | Scoop.it

Over the course of the last year MIDiA has been working with WIN (the global indie label trade body) on a major study to define the independent sector’s contribution to the global recorded music business. The default accepted wisdom is that the indies account for something like 20% of the global revenue total. However, this study revealed, that figure strongly underestimates the actual share…it is in fact 37.6%.

Le streaming par abonnement, moteur de croissance de la musique enregistrée: C’est le modèle de l’abonnement qui porte cette dynamique avec une croissance de 66% alors que ceux du modèle financé par la publicité sont en légère baisse (-2%). Aujourd’hui, les abonnements représentent 76% des revenus du streaming, soit plus de la moitié des revenus numériques et 22% de l’ensemble du marché.La part des abonnements au sein du chiffre d’affaires a donc doublé en un an : 22% à fin juillet 2015 contre 12% à fin juillet 2014.

Les revenus issus de l’exploitation numérique représentent 43% du marché total (35% à fin juillet 2014)

French record industry syndicate SNEP discloses sales figures for 2015 first semester : physical sales keeps plunging down while streaming is taking a larger ratio of revenue, but yet fails to bring overall growth to the industry (down 6.2 %).

Streaming market went up 43% compared to last year figures.

 

France clearly fails to fully embrace the digital distribution model, with physical still making the biggest part of sales (57 %) ; this would be the main reason for the french industry poor revenue.

Additionally, download sales are also declining, bringing down the industry's most profitable digital music business model revenues.

 

The stake here is clearly the french music industry's ability to jump from one model to another - which was successfully achieved by Spain or Italy, and brought back revenue growth to those markets.

Like it or not: the industry will keep losing money as long as it will try to maintain both physical and digital markets.

The current crisis is no Armageddon, it is a transitory evolution crisis. It may be one of toughest the industry when through, but it’s really the latest detour along the road. The end of the breakdown will occur as soon as the industry has completed embracing its digital age.

Larissa Teems's curator insight, February 10, 9:20 PM

I agreed with what was said about the digital transition being more of a detour for the industry, and not a final solution. Personally, I will always like to have a physical copy in some form - I especially like vinyls.
