IFPI Global Consumer Report Includes Canadian Data

Music Canada Executive VP Amy Terrill has written an overview of a new consumer insight report released by global music industry association IFPI that examines music consumption trends around the world.

Internet users aged 13 to 64 were asked to comment on how they engage with music and results from 13 markets, including Canada, are featured in the report.

Key global highlights identified by IFPI include the growth of paid audio streaming, YouTube as the most used music service, copyright infringement remaining as a significant problem, young people highly engaged with music, and the rise of smartphones towards replacing computers as the most used device for music consumption.
