75% of US music sales are streaming

According to the annual report of the RIAA of the American Music Association, music revenue has increased by 11.9% from last year to $ 9.8 billion. Now, the main source of income is music streaming service, which accounts for 75% of the total, amounting to $ 7.4 billion.

Digital radio services, such as Pandora and SiriusXM, also saw sales fall in 2017, but recovered for the first time, exceeding $ 1 billion. On the other hand, sales of physical media music, which is less than download sales and analog records, are declining. Download sales fell from $ 1.4 billion to $ 1 billion, while CD sales were down 34 percent to $ 698 million, down to record sales of $ 419 million. For more information, please click here .



Through the monthly AHC PC and HowPC magazine era, he has watched 'technology age' in online IT media such as ZDNet, electronic newspaper Internet manager, editor of Consumer Journal Ivers, TechHolic publisher, and editor of Venture Square. I am curious about this market that is still full of vitality.
