September 23, 2016 – Music Consumption: Streaming, Hi-Res Audio, and Playlisting Data Revealed

Today, consumers can listen to any music they want, at any time, in any place and in any format, whether it be downloads, radio, streaming, CDs or vinyl and, importantly, that privilege costs far less than it used to, if it costs anything at all. Crucially, the free reign that consumers have over how they access and consume music means that the radio and music industries are totally consumer driven – no one but the audience dictates what music is popular and successful. As a result, everybody in music management, publishing, broadcasting and streaming must keep their finger on the pulse of the constant changes in consumer audio consumption, and how they impact the industry as a whole. The report, ‘Music Consumption: The Overall Landscape’, encapsulates a democratic measure of audio consumption in the US, investigating the significance and impact of changes to music consumption and how they may reshape the music industry’s macro-environment. It is an invaluable tool for any company or person operating within radio or music, and the creative industries at large.
