The Real Value Of The Independent Sector

The Real Value Of The Independent Sector | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Over the course of the last year MIDiA has been working with WIN (the global indie label trade body) on a major study to define the independent sector’s contribution to the global recorded music business. The default accepted wisdom is that the indies account for something like 20% of the global revenue total. However, this study revealed, that figure strongly underestimates the actual share…it is in fact 37.6%.

This MoneyTips infographic provides a clear overview of the streaming services cash flow, and furthermore pictures how that pie is being split, and what's left to the artists.

Carson Lewis's curator insight, October 7, 2015 8:13 PM

This article talks about how streaming services income went up 29% in 2013 while cd sales went down 12.7%.  This basically means that streaming company's are making more, and artists are making less.  The more times a song is streamed, the less an artist makes.  This is why I buy all my music.  With the rise of live music streaming, there has yet to be a balance between the artists and the streaming company's.  

Eddie Verba's curator insight, November 5, 2015 5:48 PM

This article right here shows how much money Streaming sites are making off of people. The amount of people using these streams is raising very regularly as physical copies such as CDs are going down.

Lyndie Wenzloff's curator insight, December 2, 2015 1:31 PM

This infographic displays a clear path of where the revenue from streaming goes. There has been controversy over the artists not making money from streaming services, and this displays how, but it does not take into account that the record labels also make deals to pay their artists; although the artists may not be making as much in album sales, they are still being paid. The source seems credible in that the research is shown.

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.

Unlike the Music Tank article, this one only has one infographic (the one you see here), as well as a picture of John Cusack in High Fidelity being surrounded by vinyl LPs. As for the article itself, it seems very well informed despite the fact that there is not much information about the author who wrote is besides being the In Focus features editor for the website Metro.co.uk.

Clae Wilson's curator insight, November 9, 2014 6:06 PM

This article was written by Ross McGuinness for Metro.co.uk. It links not only to what he has written for Metro, but also to his personal website, his Google+ account and his Twitter. It's a great example of authenticity because you can find other work that the author has been a part of and see that he knows what he's talking about, as well as communicate with him one-on-one over Twitter and speak to him directly regarding his thoughts on the matter.

Peter Bunyaratavej's curator insight, September 13, 2015 3:38 PM

Personally I started to collect vinyl myself. It's really interesting how the sales since 2006 has been going up for this particular format. This generation all about (and this is my opinion) nostalgia. Everybody is more into the fashion during the 60's-80's, everybody want the particular haircut during the 70's. Apart from the certain crave that everybody has nowadays, there is a certain magic that vinyl plays apart of. When I started listening to the warm sound of vinyl I was eternally hooked to its cheap therapy and fantastic vintage element.

Consumer Spending On Digital Music Fell In 2014 [Yes You Read That Right] | MIDiA Research

Consumer Spending On Digital Music Fell In 2014 [Yes You Read That Right] | MIDiA Research | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it
Spending money on recorded music has become a lifestyle choice, an honesty box for the conscientious consumer. No one really needs to pay for music anymore.
Pierre Priot's insight:

This echoes with my "Carsharing With A Millennial" story  - http://bit.ly/1Rh06hO. No one really pays for music anymore. Thus B2C revenue fails to increase, actually decreases. The overall revenue growth is driven by B2B deals, most of those being ad based.

하석훈's curator insight, April 17, 4:59 AM

Just like the radio is 'occupied' by advertisements, most of music industry seems going the same way. Aesthetic-wise, I think this phenomanom will ruin the artistry of music. I want music as music, not as a medium of the advertisements. Growth of B2B or

B2B2C form in music industry will facilitate this phenomenom.

Joshua Smith's curator insight, November 4, 2015 8:49 AM

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.
