La venta de música en España crece un 6,2% en la primera mitad de 2014 | Industria Musical

La venta de música en España crece un 6,2% en la primera mitad de 2014 | Industria Musical | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

La industria musical española alcanza el ecuador del año con cifras alentadoras, según los datos de ventas correspondientes al primer semestre que hoy presenta Promusicae. Después de años de bajadas acumuladas en el volumen anual de ventas, los aficionados a la música en España han conseguido revertir esta tendencia durante la primera mitad de 2014. La inversión en música grabada, ya sea en soporte físico o digital, ascendió entre el 1 de enero y el 30 de junio a un total de 58,08 millones de euros, una cifra que mejora en un 6,2% la registrada en idéntico periodo de 2013 (54,68 millones). La consolidación del streaming y la aparición de nuevos discos de artistas tradicionalmente vendedores están detrás de este primer dato positivo desde 2001.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Music sales are going up 6.2% in Spain this semester. First sales raise since 2001. From our own experience, the Spanish audience is highly supported and has totally embraced the digital revolution.

The Great Music Industry Power Shift

The Great Music Industry Power Shift | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

The long drawn out demise of recorded music revenue is well documented, as is the story of artists, labels and managers all trying to make sense of a world in which music sales can no longer be counted upon.  But the contraction of recorded revenue has occurred at the exact same time that the live music sector has undergone a renaissance.  The net effect, when coupled with publishing revenue holding its own and  the growth of albeit modest, merchandise revenue, is that the global music industry has largely held its own, contracting by just 3% between 2000 and 2013 (see figure).  Compare and contrast with the 41% decline in (retail) recorded music revenue over the same period.  Indeed it is the 60% growth in live revenue that has done most to offset the impact of declining music sales.

Pierre Priot's insight:

The music industry went through two revolutions over the past 14 years: downloading, then streaming. And yet, its global revenue has been stable. This is a not revenue crisis, its a metamorphosis.

Digital music revenues to hit USD22.5bn by 2017

Digital music revenues to hit USD22.5bn by 2017 | Kill The Record Industry | 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, 12:43 PM

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.

Tom Silverman: 1st Anniversary Of The Resurrection Of The Music Business - hypebot | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
As I sat and planned the program for the June 2012 New Music Seminar, it occurred to me that we are approaching the first anniversary of the music business resurrection. After ten years of decline, the music business hit bottom in the second week of February 2010 and began to rise the week of February 14th. There have been many reports of the music business comeback and many have tried to figure out what was responsible for this upturn. Some have credited Adele, others the shuttering of Limewire, still others the Walmart $5 dump bins.
