Death of physical music?

Record labels and music streaming: global overview

The business of record labels must not be considered as opposite to the music streaming industry. Record companies had to differentiate their business in order to generate revenues, aside from physical music. Globally, big record labels like Universal, Sony or Warner had significant market shares in the streaming sector and the revenues generated from streaming increased from 1.8 to 4.3 billion U.S. dollars only in the years between 2015 and 2017.
