UK digital growth outperforms decline in CD formats, claim

We’re approaching a tipping point for digital music, and while there’s an awful long way to go, music people may see a little encouragement in recent news from PRS For Music.

PRS For Music declares that in 2009: “(Digital) growth (£12.8 million) outperformed the decline in traditional CD and DVD formats (down £8.7 million) for the first time, though the legal online music market is still comparatively small.”

Royalty income from online grew a big 72.7 per cent (to £30.4 million), “reflecting the increased number of legal licensed digital music services available in the UK and across Europe”.
