In this presentation, David Price, Director of Insight and Analysis at IFPI, and Josh Friedlander, SVP of Strategic Data Analysis at RIAA, will present and discuss the latest revenue trends in the music industry. In April 2018, IFPI published the Global Music Report, the definitive source of revenue data for the worldwide music industry, and analysis will focus on fresh data and analysis from this report and from the RIAA.

Friedlander will show how far audio streaming – particularly paid subscriptions – has transformed the U.S. music market in recent years. Price will move this analysis to the global landscape — Is audio streaming a solution for the music industry across the world? How does the industry in the US differ from neighbors like Canada and Mexico? What’s the potential success in countries like China, India, and Russia and how can record companies and artists best capitalize on those prospects?
