Is streaming the music industry's last stand? 2020-03-02 02:42:31 QuoteThe music industry was in crisis just a few years ago. Sales were cut in half from their peak as single downloads, YouTube and piracy made the CD album go virtually extinct. But music has found its white knight: streaming.Last year, recorded music revenues in the United States went up by 13% to $11.1 billion — the highest level since 2006. That persuaded Warner Music Group and Universal Music Group, two of the biggest music companies that represent stars like Bruno Mars and Taylor Swift, to announce plans to go public. ~ https://www.cnn.com/2020/02/28/media/music-industry-streaming/index.htmlSo for now streaming has allowed the industry to generate new revenue streams. However, can this last? Will people continue to flock to streaming and will they stay? If not, what comes next? Could this be the beginning of the end for the industry?
