For the first time in nearly a decade, the music industry saw its revenues rise in 2016.
The reason had nothing to do with the sales of hard-copy or digital music. Those numbers continued to drop. What changed was the number of people subscribing to online music-streaming services that allow them to listen to their favorite music without paying for individual albums or songs. For the first time, streaming accounted for the majority of music consumption (51 percent). And there’s no indication of a change in direction anytime soon.
