  • 儘管Covid-19大流行,西班牙的錄製音樂收入仍在增長

    ◎西班牙國家唱片公司(Promusicae)公布包括Covid-19大流行的初期影響。 2020年上半年音樂錄音著作收入創紀錄增長4%,達到1.451億歐元。這要歸功於音樂串流訂閱收入增長了17%,達到9020萬歐元;有廣告支持的音樂串流媒體收入增長了55.7%,達到1,610萬歐元;視頻服務收入增長14.9%,達到1630萬歐元。儘管出現大流行,串流媒體播放佔西班牙市場的84.5%,仍推動了增長。
    ◎德國也獲得類似的積極數據。德國音樂錄音著作收入在今年上半年增長了4.8%,這對該行業來說是令人鼓舞的。不過,確實需要將這些數字與對個別音樂人的影響分開,因為他們的生活收入已經消失,而且公開演出版稅也可能受到打擊。音樂行業的小幅增長,並不能減緩音樂人在下半年將面臨的嚴重危機,特別是在現場音樂領域。大流行對藝人和參與創造價值的每個人,都具有毀滅性影響。

    The latest national music body to reveal recorded music figures that include the initial impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is Promusicae in Spain. Recorded revenues for the first half of 2020 grew by 4% year-on-year to €145.1m.
    That’s thanks to a 17% increase in audio-streaming subscription revenues to €90.2m; a 55.7% spike in ad-supported audio streaming revenues to €16.1m; and 14.9% growth in revenues from video services to €16.3m. Streaming was thus 84.5% of the market in Spain, driving growth despite the pandemic.
    Wait though, wasn’t it Promusicae that earlier this year predicted the Spanish recorded music industry would lose around €100m in projected revenue for 2020 as a result of Covid-19 – including “at least €50m” in lost streaming revenues? It was.
    “The situation of economic recession and uncertainty will likely mean the public is less willing to pay for subscriptions, which for now we value at a drop of 16%, breaking the expected growth trend. That would generate a loss of income of another €30m this year,” Promusicae president Antonio Guisasola told Music Ally in April.
    Seemingly not, then. [Update, Promusicae has got in touch to – reasonably – point out that the prediction earlier this year was for a loss of projected income. So, revenues could rise, but if the growth is much smaller than might have been the case without Covid-19, the prediction remains valid.]
    Coming soon after similarly positive figures from Germany, where recorded music revenues grew by 4.8% in the first half of this year, it’s encouraging – for the industry. We do need to separate these figures from the impact on individual musicians, though, who’ve seen their live incomes disappear, with an anticipated hit to come for their public performance royalties too.
    “The slight industry growth this semester cannot detract from the magnitude of the crisis we will be facing in the second half of the year, particularly intense for the live sector, with devastating effects for artists and for everyone involved in the creation of value,” as Guisasola put it yesterday.
