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.

Digital May Dominate Music Consumption, But Majority of Vinyl Buyers Are 35 and Under

Digital May Dominate Music Consumption, But Majority of Vinyl Buyers Are 35 and Under | The music industry in the digital context | Scoop.it

At Amoeba Music, the hangar-size rock 'n' roll Mecca on Los Angeles' Sunset Boulevard, something ­surprising happened just before Christmas in 2013. After a few years of ­moderate growth, vinyl records started flying off the shelves in serious quantities for the first time since CDs took over in the late 1980s. Powered by Daft Punk's Random Access Memories and ­classic rock reissues, LP sales "exploded" that November, ­according to Amoeba GM Rik Sanchez. "It's just continued since -- it's substantial, a really heavy spike," he says. "Having a record in your hand is just way cooler than having a file in your iPod."

Is 2014 the year the album business fell apart?

Is 2014 the year the album business fell apart? | The music industry in the digital context | Scoop.it

In recent years, albums from the likes of Adele and Emeli Sandé have hit 1m sales in the UK. But with even the biggest acts failing to match them this year, the blockbuster album looks increasingly like a relic of the past

Or maybe big acts fail to make big album sales because they fail to put out decent albums. Right now with per song purchase, a smash hit remains a one song success. People are now longer buying albums so they'll get that one song they like.

It looks like the vinyl resurgence isn’t going away any time soon. In fact, for 2015, it may be getting stronger. Vinyl album sales between January and March of this year were 53 percent higher than the first three months of 2014, according to a recent Nielsen report.

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