Oldies Are Goodies - IFPI Annual Report
« on: August 03, 2005, 05:20:53 am »
An interesting market study presented here.

Annual statistics from the trade group for the world's record companies also reveal that music consumers have aged as the industry chases more older listeners after losing younger fans to file-sharing and illegal downloading.
About 55 percent of the music sold last year was bought by people older than 30 compared with 48 percent in 1999, the International Federation for the Phonographic Industry said.
By genre, Americans are buying more country music and less pop than they did five years ago, the IFPI found, while Britons are buying more rock and rap and less dance music. Germans are also buying more rock at the expense of pop and dance.

This is a good example of sensible and honest reporting and I shall respect it for that alone.

I am glad it includes the observation that the Cartels are not including legal download figures into yearly figures so that each year they can pretend piracy has robbed them  :wink:
