About This Statistic

The timeline presents data on the number of monthly digital radio listeners in the United States from 2012 to 2016. According to the source, digital radio reached 48 million listeners aged between 18 and 34 in 2016.

Digital radio listeners - additional information

With the online and mobile world constantly evolving and growing, it comes as no surprise that traditional media experience a switch to digital as well. Sources now predict that digital radio listeners will account for nearly 56 percent of the U.S. population in 2018. While a large share of online radio listening is done on desktops or laptops, smartphones are the future of digital radio consumption, with 73 percent of Americans accessing it through this device. In fact, trends shows that the share of consumers who listen to online radio through a mobile phone in a car kept growing constantly for the past few years.

The online radio market is dominated by Pandora, with over two million active sessions in 2017. Latest survey findings prove that consumers are very satisfied with their Pandora service. Other players in the field include iHeart Radio, iTunes Radio, as well as Spotify and Deezer.
