The real price of a music stream? It just keeps going down and down... - Music Business Worldwide

The real price of a music stream? It just keeps going down and down... - Music Business Worldwide | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Brace yourself.

The average amount of cash generated by an on-demand music stream in the US last year fell by 24%.

Each play across official premium and ad-funded platforms in 2015 – including Spotify, YouTube, TIDAL, Apple Music and Google Play Music – generated an average of $0.0051 for recorded music rightsholders.

MBW has calculated the figure by contrasting the volume of music streams in the US last year (as measured by Nielsen) with the amount of cash these plays generated, as published by the RIAA.

This figure has fallen dramatically over the past three years, since Nielsen began breaking out specific streaming consumption figures.
Pierre Priot's insight:
Here's why this business model is broken: the increase of streaming consumption doesn't provide revenue growth, but lowers the per stream revenue share.

Isn't the streaming industry a new born area? I was amazed after seeing how fast the industry changes. I know that people are going to use streaming service for a long time, but revenue is falling down! I wonder how the streaming industry is going to be change and solve this problem.

While total listening figures are roughly the same as last year, how we access and engage with music is changing.

Nielsen study reports why people are embracing streaming and why they're reluctant to pay for it.

If there is a rating and survey company you can trust it's Nielsen. I have received dollar bills in the mail from them for years! According to this info graphic, 75% of people say they are listening to music online. That says to me there is no doubt this is the future. People still holding on to physical media need to continue with the times. Now, it also shows that a lot of those people prefer to just use a free site like Spotify free or Pandora. I think that paid streaming services are going to take over this market they just have to catch on. With more and more heat coming towards internet and mobile providers for data caps and speed, you will see these sites increase. I saw a commercial that T-Mobile is offering free data on all streaming music. If this becomes the trend where music gets a pass on mobile devices then converting those physical people over will be an easier transition. The average price of an album ranges from $9.99-$13.99 in my experience where as the average streaming service price is $9.99. For the price of one CD you can have almost every album you have ever wanted, on your mobile device that you take everywhere, using none of you allotted dated.

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...'

Digital Music News - Nielsen: 'Consumers Who Engage In Piracy Will Download More Music More Often...' | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Looks like the major labels have another study to go discredit.  Just days after researchers from the European Commission found that illegal downloading has little impact on industry revenues and could be boosting digital sales, Nielsen has jumped in with corroborating information.   

Specifically, Nielsen found that pirates are generally more engaged music fans.  They download more stuff than those playing by the rules.  And just maybe, buy more stuff.

Pierre Priot's insight:

may pirates be some kind of enlightened consumers?

I wouldn't think that just becuase there are more illegal downloaders that there will be more people to buy albums

Media sharing and streaming again has a positive effect, boosting sales all across the board

Brittany Paige's curator insight, October 8, 2015 9:37 PM

What I like about this article is that its not all focused on the negative it shows that there might be a positive part of this including an increase in digital sales. It shows that not everything from this bad and that it might not be such a bad thing like everyone is trying to make it out to be. This in my opinion because of the different point of view is a very reliable source.

Again, another visual aspect on where music is going with end of 2015 stats. Streaming is easily taking over. Artist need to realize that streaming is the way of the future and need to accept that and move away from the olden days of cd sales.
