Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global music market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 9% during the forecast period.

The growing number of subscription services and concerts will lead to an inflow of revenue.

According to Ujjwal Doshi, a lead analyst at Technavio for publishing and advertising research, “Live events across the globe are experiencing an increase in attendance of audiences, thus, propelling the growth of the global music market. Also, the increasing popularity of nightlife regarding pubs and discos, where DJs play music on a regular basis, has motivated individuals to become more passionate about live performances.”
