Navi Mumbai, November 17, 2010:

Digital music distribution: markets, analysis and forecasts 2010 – the continued impact of mobile music and itunes: According to a recent report on CNN, ‘total revenue from U.S. music sales and licensing plunged’ between the years 1999 and 2009. They said that ‘at the end of last year, the music business was worth half of what it was ten years ago and the decline doesn’t look like it will be slowing anytime soon’.

Many believe that the main reason for this decline is the increased popularity of digital music. The report quotes the former Head of Yahoo Music as saying ‘The CD is still disappearing, and nothing is replacing it in entirety as a revenue generator. Digital downloads are not even going to replace what the CD business did for the industry.” However, digital licensing revenue has reached toward $100 billion in 2009, and we expect it to grow even further in the next couple of years.

Digital distribution and music on the mobile platform have extended past the confines of the ringtone and has developed on the mobile handset and the mobile web. Mobile music has become a business in its own right, with players both on and off the mobile platform. The growing reach of digital distribution via iTunes onto iPhones/mobile handsets and the mobile web has driven the reach of mobile music, and given the size of the mobile audience – this remains a valuable market to invest in content.

As music content is moved from the physical to the digital platform, the mobile phone and mobile web are ideally placed to digitally distribute and develop mobile content, and tailor content directly to consumer demand. Our new report provides you with the essential business information you need at your disposal and poses a number of significant questions, such as:
• Will the traditionally big players of music be the major players of digital distribution and mobile music?
• Can large record companies maintain their position in a digitally mobile market?
• Will the mobile handset continue to compete against stand alone digital music devices, or will they develop as combined technologies?

Creating revenue from mobile music has also evolved, as the content and the method of access has become more sophisticated. Early subscription methods of high payments posed a low user experience which threatened to push all but the most dedicated niche markets away from the content. Digital distribution and mobile music has responded to the requirements of consumers in both the music providers and the mobile web. Charges on the mobile web have decreased and this has opened up the space for mobile music and increased the incentive for mobile subscribers to explore this content.

The continuing success of convergence on the mobile handset has driven digital distribution and music players onto the mobile handset, and the link between the mobile handset and the mobile web is an important factor in mobile music. An increasing number of mobile handset vendors develop mobile music market products with their own mobile music services, further driving handsets that possess mobile music playing capabilities. As the market becomes increasingly crowded, competitors will need to establish strong competitive differentiation, and music services will have to offer the consumer innovative and unique selling points in order to gain market traction and retain consumers.
