Inside Pandora's Quest to Take on Spotify, Apple Music & Amazon | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
With 78 million users, streaming’s original music service remains an online radio giant -- but increasingly threatened by subscription services from Spotify to Apple Music.

Nielsen 2016 Report: Streaming Smashes From Adele, Drake & More Offset Sinking Music Sales

Nielsen 2016 Report: Streaming Smashes From Adele, Drake & More Offset Sinking Music Sales | New Music Industry | Scoop.it
As streaming rapidly becomes music's leading format, the business is growing with it. In 2016, the industry tallied 561 million album-consumption units, according to Nielsen Music, a 3 percent increase over 2015's 543.8 million units -- the first time during the millennium that the industry has posted gains in two consecutive years.

Dalton Walker's curator insight, January 22, 4:48 PM

It is interesting that the industry has made gains two years in a row. To say the least that is impressive but I feel like the streaming will do nothing but increase the money that artists make because it gives them more exposure. However it could also slow sales because music is so much more attainable now from free sites.
