Hampshire, UK – 11th August 2015: New data from Juniper Research has found that revenue generated through ad-based music streaming is set to exceed $1 Billion by 2017, up from $782 Million in 2015, despite the declining numbers of players offering ‘freemium’ services.
Many key players are opting to exclude full-featured freemium services, with offerings restricted to, at most, basic radio style features, as exemplified by Apple Music and Amazon Prime Music. Nonetheless, ad-based revenues are still expected to see strong growth as consumers continue to migrate to streaming services.
Apple & Freemium to Drive User Expansion
The new research, Digital Music – Subscriptions, Ad Revenues & Download Services 2015-2020, found that while freemium services will continue to entice a growing number of users, the model will enjoy a greater influence in funnelling consumers towards the more profitable subscription options. Hence, with the drive of ad-based services coupled with the growing impact of key players, streaming is expected to be brought to the forefront of the market with a significant global growth in user numbers.
Unsurprisingly the entrance of Apple Music is expected to act as a major catalyst in driving the expansion of subscription-based streaming services, with significant growth expected across all major markets. Indeed, the company has already reported a user base of 11 million trial subscribers.
“With convenience, accessibility and curation having become the defining elements of the music landscape, the potential of the streaming industry will revolve around the levels of which providers can convert free customers to paying customers” noted research author Joe Crabtree.
The Decline in Downloads to Continue
Juniper also found that the music industry has reached a critical point in its digital evolution with the download market experiencing its first decline in 2014. The download market has long been at the forefront of the digital transformation; however, following its recent struggle, the market is forecast to continue its global decline with the music industry instead turning to the potential of streaming.
