“Streaming’s 42% year-over-year growth and vinyl LPs’ 40% increase over last year’s record-setting pace shows interest in buying and consuming music continues to be robust, with two very distinct segments of the industry expanding substantially.”
In fact, the only area in which sales increased was those of vinyl albums, which still represent a tiny portion of the overall music business. The continuing resurgence of consumer interest in vinyl was reflected in the 40.4% increase in units, from 2.9 million in the first half of 2013 to 4 million so far this year. That’s still just 3% of total album sales of 120.9 million units during 2014, combining CDs, cassettes, LPs and digital albums.
