Audio Streaming Rises 68%, Vinyl Sales Surge 53%, Music Report Says

In total, music consumption increased just 1.5% to 123 million albums, said the British Phonographic Industry. The strongest increase was with the 45 billion audio streams served through digital services including Spotify, Apple, Deezer and Tidal. This was two-thirds more than 2015 and accounted for 36.4 per cent of all U.K. music consumption. The figure touched 1 billion streams a week for the first time in December. George Michael’s death came right at the end of the period. – Mark Beech, Forbes
