    ◎美國唱片業協會RIAA發布唱片市場年中統計數據,2020年上半年收入同比增長5.6%,達到57億美元。唱片公司收入增長5.1%,達到37億美元。和其他國家一樣,Covid-19在今年第二季產生了重大影響,但不至於造成唱片音樂市場的衰落。2020年上半年5.6%的增長與2019年上半年增長18%相較,顯著放緩。但RIAA看到積極的一面,包括串流媒體收入增長12%。
    ◎串流媒體在今年上半年為美國唱片音樂產業創造了48億美元的收入,佔零售總額的84.9%。其中,串流媒體訂閱增長了13.7%,達到33.5億美元,而付費層級訂閱增長了17.9%,達到4.417億美元。RIAA表示,今年上半年,美國付費音樂訂閱的平均人數為7200萬,而去年同期為5820萬。
    ◎所有這些成長彌補了CD銷售額下降的47.6%,僅為1.299億美元,遠遠落後黑膠銷售額,黑膠增長3.6%,至2.321億美元。這是黑膠唱片銷售額自1980年代以來,首次超過CD。

    US music industry body the RIAA has published its annual mid-year stats for the recorded music market there. They show that revenues grew by 5.6% year-on-year to $5.7bn in the first half of 2020. That’s a retail figure: the wholesale revenues made by labels grew by 5.1% to $3.7bn.
    The story here, as in other countries, is that Covid-19 had a significant impact in the second quarter of this year, but not enough to push the recorded music market into decline.
    That 5.6% growth is a notable deceleration – in the first half of 2019 the growth was 18% – but the RIAA is looking at the positives, including a 12% rise in streaming revenues.
    Streaming generated $4.8bn of revenue for the US recorded music industry in the first half of this year, accounting for 84.9% of overall retail revenues.
    Within that, full-fat streaming subscriptions grew by 13.7% to $3.35bn, while ‘limited tier’ subscriptions grew by 17.9% to $441.7m. The RIAA says that the average number of paid music subscriptions in the US was 72m in the first half of this year, up from 58.2m a year ago.
    All this made up for an eye-watering 47.6% decline in CD sales, which at just $129.9m were well behind vinyl sales, which grew by 3.6% to $232.1m. It’s the first time vinyl has outsold CD since the 1980s.
    “These are historically difficult times: the live music sector is shut down; studio recording is limited; and millions of Americans are out of work across the broader economy,” said RIAA chairman and CEO Mitch Glazier.
    “While we’re pleased that the years of hard work and resources we’ve invested in streaming are driving growth in paid subscriptions, today’s report demonstrates just how much work remains to achieve a sustainably healthy music ecosystem for both music creators and fans.”
    “We must continue working to help sustain live music and venues, support gig workers and session musicians, and ensure fair pay for music on all digital platforms. Despite all the challenges from the pandemic, one thing clearly hasn’t changed – fans still love music.”
    The trend shown in the RIAA figures – growth, if not as high as would have been expected before Covid-19 – has also been reflected in other countries, including Germany and Spain.
