The global music market is expected to record a value of US$73.39 billion in 2026, progressing at a CAGR of 3.39%, over the period 2022-2026. The factors such as accelerating number of paid streaming subscribers, rising adoption of smartphones, expanding music consumption, growing popularity of digital music streaming platforms and growing integration with social media platforms are expected to drive the market. However, the market growth would be challenged by declining ARPU of digital music platforms, availability of pirated channels and privacy issues. The market is anticipated to experience certain trends like improved mobile networks (4G & 5G Technology), mounting penetration of the internet and advancements in technology.





According to type, the global music market can be bifurcated into recorded music, streaming, music publishing and others such as live music and broadcast. Further, the recorded music market can be split into streaming (subscription & ad supported), physical, download & other digital and others, on the basis of format.
