Music Ecosystem

Advanced personalization and curation to enhance music streaming experiences

Music Ecosystem_Chicklet_1

The music industry is still in flux.

It continues to face shifting consumer habits and demands. Physical sales may outpace digital sales in a few remaining markets in Europe and North America,1 but traditional models of music ownership are giving way to the fast-growing model of music access. Digital music services in the U.S., with only about 4 percent market penetration,2 have yet to fully recognize their growth potential. Opportunities abound for music companies worldwide.
