Marché de la musique enregistrée – les résultats du premier semestre 2015 - SNEP

Marché de la musique enregistrée – les résultats du premier semestre 2015 - SNEP | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
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)
Pierre Priot's insight:

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 Music News - One Little Problem With the Whole 'Streaming Saved Sweden' Thing...

Digital Music News - One Little Problem With the Whole 'Streaming Saved Sweden' Thing... | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

If streaming saved Sweden from a precipitous sales oblivion, why isn't the same thing happening in other countries?  Here's one reason: streaming just isn't as big or important in other countries, and is less a percentage of broader digital consumption.  

Pierre Priot's insight:

If streaming is eating the download in Sweden + France, it fails to do so in bigger markets, leaving room for future US/worldwide players (such as iTunes Match).

Are Streaming and Other Music Consumption Modes Substitutes or Complements? by Godefroy Dang Nguyen, Sylvain Dejean, François Moreau :: SSRN

Are Streaming and Other Music Consumption Modes Substitutes or Complements? by Godefroy Dang Nguyen, Sylvain Dejean, François Moreau :: SSRN | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
From a representative survey of 2,000 French individuals, we study whether consumption of music through streaming services, such as Spotify or YouTube, is a substitute or a complement to other music consumption modes such as CD, pay-downloads or live music. Controlling for the taste for music, various socio-demographic characteristics, as well as for the usual determinants of music consumption either offline (radio, TV, friends/relatives) or online (online recommendations, social networks), our results show that consuming music as streams (where the consumer does not possess the music but has just an access to it) has no significant effect on CDs purchase but is a complement to buying music online. The use of streaming services also affects positively live music attendance, but only for national or international artists who are more likely to be available on streaming services. These results suggest that a new music ecosystem is emerging in which the “possession” as well as the “access” modes of recorded music consumption might coexist.

Hadopi: 7 millions d'euros de budget en 2013 pour 3 millions d'e-mails envoyés depuis 2010 - FrenchWeb.fr

Hadopi: 7 millions d'euros de budget en 2013 pour 3 millions d'e-mails envoyés depuis 2010 - FrenchWeb.fr | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

€ 7MEn 2012, Aurélie Filippetti avait estimé que « 12 millions d’euros annuels et 60 agents, c’est cher pour envoyer un million d’e-mails ». Résultat, le budget de l’Hadopi, la haute autorité pour diffusion œuvres protection droits internet, ne cesse de diminuer depuis deux ans. Celui-ci est passé de 12 millions d’euros en 2012, à 7 millions d’euros en 2013, soit 1 million de moins que les 8 millions d’euros initialement prévus selon BFM Business.

Pierre Priot's insight:

French government spent €7M on the useless Hadopi last year.
If you're still wondering what stopped piracy in France, it's nothing but Deezer.
