人們買實體音樂的地方開始轉變

◎實體音樂銷售無疑地逐漸在下滑,然而當大量商家和連鎖店的銷售都在下降的同時,一些非傳統店家的銷售成績卻有了起色。

◎仍有許多人會購買實體音樂,但購買的地方或管道卻開始有了變化。根據Soundscan的圖表,零售商店的實體音樂銷售正日趨減少,而減少的其中一部分都轉移至非傳統零售通路如Amazon,其實體銷售成長了8%;連鎖商店、大型賣場如Wal Mart、下載網站和家庭式店家的銷售,比起上一季皆明顯減少。

◎總體而言,儘管CD銷售下滑了10%,但其銷售仍有不錯的成績,賣出8260萬張,而黑膠唱片的銷售仍持續成長,同比去年上升了32%達到800萬張。

詳細內文:

Physical music sales are certainly on the decline, but while the numbers for mass merchants and chain stores are dropping, some non-traditional merchants are seeing an improvement.

There's still a lot of physical music product being sold despite what you might read, but the places that people are buying it is changing.

According to Soundscan, retail stores are selling less and less, but some of the slack is being taken up by non-traditional retailers like Amazon, which grew 8%.

Retail chains, mass merchants like Wal Mart, dowload stores, and mom & pop stores all saw their sales decrease last quarter.

Overall, CD sales are down 10%, but still sold a healthy 82.6 million, and vinyl sales still continue to surge, up 32% to 8 million sales.

Physical product is far from dead, but it's certainly decreasing at a rapid rate.
