It’s no secret that the music industry has been struggling in many fronts (but mainly in album sales). Hell, you’ve probably been sick of reading our own reports on how Summer ticket sales were at a low this past year. But in case you need more proof, and a fancy graph to go along with it, ClickItTicket.com has you covered.
ClickItTicket.com has just released a fantastic visual graph that showcases a lot of interesting music industry stats. In addition to U.S. music sales from 1999 to 2008, the research includes stats on concert ticket sales (2006-2011), most downloaded iTunes songs of all time, how the money music makes gets distributed, countries on the U.S. Priority Watchlist for piracy and much more. It’s a really fascinating and eye opening look for anyone with even a slight interest in the industry. I myself found it interesting to see the graphs that break down who gets paid what from the actual sales. I also was surprised to discover that games made up 35% of the industry’s digital revenue stream, while music only made up 20%.
