Music streaming doubles as plays reach almost 15 billion in a year

Music streaming doubles as plays reach almost 15 billion in a year | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Data from Kantar Worldpanel showed that over a quarter of adults (26.8%) used a dedicated music streaming service such as Spotify, Deezer, Google Play or Rdio at some point in 2014, with around 1 in 16 adults using the paid tier of one for at least part of the year.

The BPI’s report also revealed a slow-down in the rate of decline of CD album sales and vinyl sales reaching a 20-year high at 1.3 million sales in 2014, as listeners adopt a "multi-channel" digital/physical approach to music consumption.
Pierre Priot's insight:

Streaming doubles in UK, and yet vinyl sales hit a 1.3M figure ; could streaming be actually boosting physical sales?
