Music Bg W

We have never listened to as much music as we do today, testament to the solidity and resilience of its usage.

Although the health crisis put performing arts on hold for a while, a powerful rebound is expected for the sector, where the sensory and immersive experience of performances continues to be their fundamental value proposition, along with the accelerated transformation towards livestream.

Key figures

  • A French music industry which represents € 3,6 billion in total.
  • The recorded music market (phonographic production / publishing) posted a turnover of € 780 million in 2020.
  • Pre-crisis performing arts were a massive and very dynamic market, worth around € 2,6 billion in 2019.
  • Music publishing, bringing together the purchasing and management of musical works catalogues and editorial rights, represented € 390 million in 2018.

Industry trends

  • Technological innovations such as blockchain, big data, or artificial intelligence are transforming the sector.
  • The very high concentration and consolidation upstream and downstream of the value chain contrast with a disintermediation of the sector, characterized by an increase in self-production and self-distribution among artists.
  • Increased cross-functionality between the music industry and other creative industries (Video games, Fashion, etc.).
  • Publishing rights and masters catalogues are becoming increasingly valuable assets.
  • Artists are becoming real brands.
